Chelsea defender 安东尼奥·吕迪格 is wearing a mask in today’s Champions League final against Manchester City in Porto.

The centre-back hit the turf in the final minutes of the Champions League semi-final first leg with Real Madrid, which ended as a 1-1 draw in the Spanish capital, suffering a facial injury.

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.

The Germany international also scored a vital goal during that tense run-in as the Blues avenged their FA Cup final defeat2-1 victory over Leicester at Stamford Bridge.

Rudiger started the Champions League final as part of Thomas Tuchel’s back-five, with Reece James restored to his right wing-back role.
