Chelsea set off for Spain yesterday for tonight's Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid, with a couple of young stars among their travelling party.
Van Ginkel has been out injured since September, but has been featuring for
the under-21 side in recent weeks.
Nathan Ake featured in the Europa League knockout stages last season but has found it tough to break into the first team this campaign.
Ake travelled with Chelsea to Paris for their quarter-final tie in the previous round.
Neither player is expected to, and in likelihood expecting to, feature against Atletico, but simply being part of the squad for the trip will be of benefit to their careers moving forward, being able to soak up the atmosphere of such a huge occasion.
