Di Matteo confirms Luiz is a doubt for Champions League clash with Barcelona

David Luiz is a doubt for Chelsea’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Barcelona, Roberto Di Matteo has confirmed.

Luiz picked up a hamstring injury during the Wembley victory over Tottenham and looks like he will miss Wednesday’s game at Stamford Bridge.

Interim boss Di Matteo said: “We picked up some bruises and niggles. It’s a matter of assessing the team tomorrow to see who’s fit and available for the next game.

“It’s very demanding for us at the moment with all the games, but we’re pleased that we can play in two Champions League semi-finals and an FA Cup final.”

Defender Branislav Ivanovic, who is serving a domestic ban, is available to face Barca.
