Defender suffered a facial injury late in the first leg of his side’s Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid
Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is wearing a mask in today’s Champions League final against Manchester City in Porto.
Rudiger collided with Luka Modric at the end of the game, which manager Thomas Tuchel described as “a little bone injury on the side of the face”.
Rudiger only spent one match on the sidelines before returning to the heart of Chelsea’s defence as they secured a top-four finish in the Premier League.
Rudiger started the Champions League final as part of Thomas Tuchel’s back-five, with Reece James restored to his right wing-back role.
