Following a shock 5-2 home loss to West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League, Chelsea will hope to bounce back as they will be traveling to Spain to face off with FC Porto at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán.
There have been eight Champions League meetings between these two teams, with Porto winning just 2 games, while Chelsea have won 5 matches, and the other game ended in a draw.
Porto will be without Mouhamed Mbaye due to injury, while Mehdi Taremi and Sérgio Oliveira are both suspended for this clash. Chelsea, on the other hand, have no injury concerns, but N’Golo Kante is a major doubt for this clash.
Porto are coming into this game as the underdog, but they eliminated Juventus in the last round, and Chelsea will have to be wary of his threat. Chelsea will be aiming to get back to winning ways, but this looks like a close encounter.
You can catch the game live on SuperSport on DSTV on Wednesday, April 7 2021, by 9 pm Naija time.
