Chelsea vs. Porto Match Analysis and Prediction

Chelsea has one foot firmly placed in the Champions League’s semi-finals but has to see of a 2-0 first-leg win against Porto. The match schedules for Tuesday at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, with kickoff at 10 pm.

Goals from Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell were more than enough to secure a 2-0 comfortable win for the Blues. However, meeting the Portuguese champions at home might spell a different course for Thomas Tuchel.

Mason Mount’s first Champions League goal was nothing short of impressive after an unexpected turn followed with an amazing effort into the bottom corner. Ben Chilwell capped off the night to make a strong second-leg tie which they have progressive eight times on ten occasions.

It marked the perfect response from their first humiliating 5-2 defeat to West Brom in the Premier League. Time made up for it after another impressive 4-1 derby win against Crystal Palace.

Tuchel’s men brag of three clean sheets in a row in the Champions League; therefore, defense remains their best form of attack in the second leg. It has been a drought spell for the Blues, who emerged victorious in this competition back in the 2013-14 season.

On the other hand, the drought has been far worse for their visitors, who have failed to move past the quarter-finals stage of this competition since 2003-2004. It remains a hard nut to crack for them.
