Chelsea are coming on the back off a huge 4-1 victory against Crystal Palace. They displayed good football skills and registered this humongous win. Christian Pulisic scored 2 goals and Kai Havertz and Kurt Zouma scored 1 each and contributed to the 4 goals. Thomas Tuchel’s side had also won the first leg of this match 2-0. Mason Mount scored a goal in the first half which was followed by Ben Chilwell’s late goal.
Porto will face an uphill task when they take over the Blues. Though they are coming on the back off a 2-1 victory over Santa Clara, Wednesday’s game will be a high-pressure game for them, considering the opponents and the 2-goal deficit. In the Primeira Liga, Porto are placed 2nd in the table with 60 points and have won their last 5 games. This proves they are a quality side and a little bit of application and good luck can make them comeback into the match.
