FC Porto vs Chelsea: How to Watch/Live Stream Champions

April 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Chelsea go head-to-head with Porto this evening as the teams’ Champions League quarter-final tie gets under way.

Both legs of the last-eight meeting will be held in Seville due to coronavirus-related travel restrictions, with this first leg serving as a ‘home’ fixture for Portuguese champions Porto.

A semi-final against either Real Madrid or Liverpool awaits the winners of this tie, with Chelsea the favourites due to their fine start to life under Thomas Tuchel. The German led his team on a 14-match unbeaten run, starting from his first game in charge at the end of January, though that streak was halted in dramatic fashion at the weekend as the Blues suffered a shocking 5-2 Premier League defeat by 19th-placed West Brom at Stamford Bridge.

Porto, meanwhile, are on a three-match winning run since their 3-2 second-leg loss to Juventus in the Champions League last 16 – an extra-time result that ensured Sergio Conceicao’s side safe passage to the final eight on account of their 2-1 first-leg victory. Chelsea, meanwhile, were 3-0 aggregate winners against Atletico Madrid in the last round.

Blaise Matuidi standing in front of a crowd: It’s no coincidence that the Portuguese superstar has won the Champions League five times. Wherever he has played, whether it be Manchester United (15 goals), Real Madrid (105) or now Juventus (14) – Cristiano Ronaldo has always found the back of the net. With 134 goals, Ronaldo is the undisputed top scorer in Europe’s top club competition. (*as of March 15, 2021)
The fixture will air live on BT Sport, with subscribers also able to watch it live on the broadcaster’s website and app.

What is the team news?

Porto will be without Sergio Oliveira – who has scored 19 times across all competitions this term – with the midfielder having picked up one too many yellow cards, while Mehdi Taremi is also suspended for this game after his red card against Juventus. Malang Sarr is eligible to take on his parent club here, though the 22-year-old is unlikely to start.

N’Golo Kante should be fit in the Chelsea midfield, as should Christian Pulisic – despite the winger’s half-time exit against West Brom with an apparent injury. Thiago Silva’s sending-off in that game does not affect his eligibility tonight, but fellow centre-back Antonio Rudiger could miss out after his reported training ground clash with goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Predicted line-ups

Porto: Marchesin; Manafa, Pepe, Mbemba, Sanusi; Corona, Grujic, Uribe, Otavio; Marega, Martinez

Chelsea:Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen; Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell; Ziyech, Mount; Giroud

Porto were seen as the most favourable opponents for the other seven teams when the quarter-final draw was made, but they are no pushovers – as they demonstrated by eliminating Italian champions Juventus in the last round. That fact, coupled with Chelsea’s poor result against West Brom at the weekend, will give Blues fans cause for concern. But Chelsea still have the greater quality and depth, and that should at least be enough to secure a vital away goal and draw here, if not a win. Porto 1-1 Chelsea.

Chelsea must tonight immediately recover from Thomas Tuchel’s first loss as manager as they travel to face Porto in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

A remarkable 5-2 loss to West Brom, in which Thiago Silva was sent off, was in stark contrast to their recent performances based on rearguard wins, none more so than beating Atletico Madrid home and away in the last round.

Porto were the team to get in the draw but are no pushovers after eliminating Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus.

Date, time and venue

Porto vs Chelsea is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Saturday, April 10, 2021.
