Watch live Chelsea training and Academy football this week

The Blues play for a place in the Champions League final this week, with coverage of our semi-final against Real Madrid including live training, as well as the final Premier League 2 game of the season, available on Chelsea platforms over the coming days...

The 5th Stand app, the Chelsea FC website and our official YouTube channel are the places to be for all the following programmes…

Tuesday 4 May - 3pm

The build-up to the second leg of our European semi-final begins on Tuesday afternoon when Thomas Tuchel addresses the media to preview a huge clash at Stamford Bridge.

In the aftermath of our weekend victory against Fulham, the boss reported that Mateo Kovacic and Toni Rudiger were the two to keep an eye on in terms of their fitness for the game, and he will certainly be asked to provide an update on their condition when he speaks from Cobham ahead of training. You can watch live from 3pm.

Tuesday 4 May - 5pm

Following the conclusion of that media briefing, Tuchel will lead his players out onto the training pitches for one final session before the semi-final and you can watch part of those preparations live from 5pm.

It will be the first opportunity to see Rudiger in action in the face mask that he is expected to require following a facial injury sustained late on in Madrid last week, while Kovacic's involvement or otherwise will indicate whether the Croatian is likely to feature against his former club.

Wednesday 5 May - 6.50pm

Matchday Live returns with all the team news, talking points, key analysis and reaction as we take on the reigning La Liga champions looking to build on a 1-1 draw in the first leg. 

Coverage begins at 6.50pm with half-time and full-time reaction to follow.

Friday 7 May - 1pm

Tuchel will be back in front of the cameras at Cobham on Friday afternoon previewing our trip to Manchester City, a game in which Pep Guardiola's side could be crowned Premier League champions.

Expect the boss to be quizzed about that prospect as well as our recent FA Cup semi-final victory over City at Wembley. Following the midweek Champions League ties, it could even be the dress rehearsal for the European final...

Friday 7 May - 4pm

Andy Myers and the Chelsea development squad bring the curtain down on a campaign like no other when they head to Blackburn Rovers on Friday afternoon.

The young Blues need a victory to secure a second-place finish in the Premier League 2 standings. Kick-off at Leyland County Ground is at 4pm.
