London giant’s Chelsea face off against Portuguese side FC Porto in the UEFA Champions League quarter finals tonight. The stage is set for yet another thrilling night in the continental stage.

After yesterday’s entertaining two matches wherein Real Madrid and Manchester City came out winners against Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund respectively, we can expect some more action packed matches. Paris Saint Germain play Bayern Munich as well tonight.

Team news

Chelsea fans will be feeling relatively confident going into the match given that Chelsea have won 75% of their matches against Portuguese opponents. Moreover FC Porto have lost five of their eight games against Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League.

However after the blues humiliating defeat against West Bromwich Albion, Thomas Tuchel and company will be well advised to not take this team lightly. After all they’ve managed to defeat Juventus in the previous round.
