Match Preview

Chelsea will face FC Porto at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final on Thursday (8/4/2021) at 12:30 midnight Indian time. Both teams are in their best performance, the duel between the two teams is predicted to run fiercely since the early minutes.

The Porto versus Chelsea match had to be relocated to a neutral venue. The reason is, the Portuguese Government still prohibits immigrants from England from entering the territory of their country.

Both Porto and Chelsea have performed beautifully in the last 16 of this season's Champions League. Porto managed to get rid of Juventus thanks to the aggressiveness of away goals (4-4 on aggregate), while Chelsea threw Atletico Madrid 4-0 on aggregate.

The Dragons and the Blues haven't seen each other in a long time. The last time the two teams faced off was in the 2015/2016 Champions League group stage.

At that time Porto won 2-1 at home, while Chelsea also won two goals without reply at Stamford Bridge. So that the duel between the two teams will be very interesting.

This match is also predicted to run tight because the two teams are also in good form lately. FC Porto and Chelsea have one loss from the last five matches in all competitions, so this duel will be very unpredictable.

In this duel, Porto was not a full team because their two mainstay players, Mehdi Taremi and Sergio Oliveira, got accumulated cards. Chelsea also came to Spain without the best strengths, as Christian Pulisic and N'Golo Kante were confirmed to have suffered injuries.

With the conditions above, the battle of FC Porto against Chelsea at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan will be an exciting spectacle and should not be missed.
