Real Madrid Ready To ‘Fight To The Death’ To Beat Chelsea – Zidane

Zinedine Zidane has insisted that Eden Hazard, Sergio Ramos, and all his Real Madrid stars are ready to ‘fight to the death' when they take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in Wednesday's semi-final second leg.

The former France playmaker dismissed any fears over Captain Ramos‘ fitness, before tipping Hazard to find top form on his old stomping ground.

‘'I'm not going to be taking a risk, Sergio is with us and that means that he is ready to play; that's it,’' said Zidane.

‘'We're in the Champions League semi-finals, we are all going to fight to the death out there on the pitch. All the players are ready to play, and then of course I have to pick a team.’’

Asked if now would be the perfect time for Hazard to hit his peak after an injury-plagued two years at Real, Zidane continued:

‘'We're going to need Eden. We know what a good player he is, and he's definitely going to be helping the team.
