Player to watch – Alex Grimaldo

Luis de la Fuente sprung a minor surprise by opting for Marc Cucurella ahead of Alex Grimaldo at left back in this tournament but the Chelsea man has done well. Grimaldo is an exciting option though and he could really make his mark in this game having scored 10 and assisted 13 in the Bundesliga this term.

A key attacking force for Leverkusen

Grimaldo was integral to Bayer Leverkusen’s remarkable season. Despite operating as a wing back, he still averaged 2.2 shots and 2.4 key passes per game in the German top flight.
