They really played well in the first league. We saw them, having 61 percent possession, and dominated long stretches of the game. They took advantage of the chances presented and converted them to goals. In fairness, they did deserve the win.
The Blues have already secured the first leg of eleven Champions League knockout matches, progressing on eight of the last ten occasions. We hope this will be their 9th one. What are the football gods saying?
In the premier league, they have no chance of winning the title as the league leaders Manchester City are 20 points ahead of them Therefore, they have to give it all in the Champions League as they can redeem themselves and win the title and have a huge chance to do so.
FC Porto must get off to a fast start if they are to advance to the semi-finals. They are heading to this match 2 goals down and will need to play more attacking. However, their host has a good defensive play and they will have to be very tactical to penetrate the wall. They need to score at least two goals to give them hope to qualify to the next stage.
In the first league, the Portuguese champions fired 12 shots, five of which were on goal, but a lack of converting those chances in attack eventually cost them. They did play well and we expect as they head to this match, all guns blazing will give Chelsea a hard time.
Porto’s Champions League efforts in recent years have been disappointing, as the Portuguese giants have never advanced beyond the quarter-final stage of the competition since their victorious campaign in 2003-04. We can’t however, neglect what they did in the round of 16 against Juventus. We look forward to an entertaining clash.
