FC Porto V Chelsea. FC Porto host Chelsea in the champions league quarter-final clash on Wednesday night.
Porto will look to surprise Chelsea and advance to the semi-finals just like they did against Juventus in the round of 16. Porto drew with Juventus 4-4 on aggregate and advanced to this stage courtesy of away-goals rule. The Portuguese heavy-weights will aim to advance and probably win their first champions league title since 2004.
Chelsea on the other hand are in the quarters after comfortably beating Spanish giants Atletico Madrid 3-0 on aggregate. Thomas Tuchel has his eyes on taking Chelsea to the final and winning the champions league after failing to do so with PSG last season. Chelsea will aim to display better performance than last weekend. The Blues were hammered 5-2 by 19th placed West Brom in Saturday’s Premier League match. It was a night to forget for both the players and manager. Thomas Tuchel’s focus is now on FC Porto as he aims to inspire his team to European triumph.
