Chelsea vs Porto. Chelsea play host to FC Porto in the champions league quarter-final second leg as they aim to cement their semifinal place.
Chelsea beat Porto 2-0 as they played the away team in Seville. Mason Mount made it 1-0 with a fine strike in the first half before Ben Chilwell sealed the win with a brilliant move past Porto’s keeper. Chelsea played as the away team at the neutral venue in Seville and will be playing as the home team when they return to the same venue on Tuesday night.
Chelsea are in top form since Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard in January having lost just once in 17 matches they have played under Tuchel. Tuchel aims to lead Chelsea to European silverware by reaching the champions league final and winning it.
FC Porto on the other hand go into this clash aiming to overturn a 2-goal deficit and reach the semifinals for the first time since 2003 when they won the competition under Mourinho. Sergio’s men were unbeaten in six straight European matches before their 3-2 loss to Juventus that saw them knockout Juve via away goals rule.
The loss to Chelsea in the first leg was their second in Europe since their 3-1 matchday 1 loss to Manchester City. Sergio Conceicao is however confident that his team can overturn the result and advance to the semifinals.
