Reason for Chelsea vs Porto Predictions
Chelsea returned to Premier League action with a resounding 4-1 win over Crystal Palace and will be looking to complete the job at home to Porto in the Champions League quarters after the 2-0 away win. It will be more of an away game for the Blues, playing in Seville, but now, they are used to these conditions, having last lost an away game in January. The team beat Crystal Palace 4-1 on Saturday, scoring more than two goals for the first time in new coach Thomas Tuchel’s 17 matches in charge. After netting the crucial first goal in the 2-0 win over Porto, Mason Mount was instrumental again in the win over Palace. Though he didn’t score, he had a hand in two of the four goals, and his performance as they return to Seville will be critical for the Englishmen. Christian Pulisic plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the defensive team. Many teams are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is a fantastic player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. A great reinforcement, he was a favorite of RB Leipzig fans.
Porto is also coming from a win in Primeira Liga. They beat Tondela 2-0 and will be in high spirits heading back to Spain for this game. Porto missed two key men on suspension in the first leg – their lead scorers Mehdi Taremi and Sergio Oliveira. The two are expected to change how Porto approach this game, having scored 34 goals combined this season. Taremi returned with a goal, having started the Tondela game on the bench – he needed just nine minutes to score the second of the day. In the first leg, Moussa Marega struggled upfront without the duo’s support, and the three are all expected to start as Porto throws everything at Chelsea. Porto has scored twice in eight of their last ten matches, and this is the form they’ll hope to carry to this game, as they need at least a 2-0 win to advance. Sergio Oliveira has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Chelsea is the favorite in the rematch, and they have a significant advantage of two goals from the first match.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this clash.
