Chelsea boost as Porto to be without their two top scorers on Wednesday

Chelsea boost as Porto to be without their two top scorers on Wednesday

FC Porto vs Chelsea

Chelsea are back in European action on Wednesday the 7th of April.

The Blues have made it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since the 2013/14 season.

Thomas Tuchel’s side saw off Atletico Madrid in the previous round, and have arguably been handed the easiest draw of the last-eight.

Porto are a decent side, and have put on some impressive displays this season. But they only scraped through to the quarters after beating a pretty unimpressive Juventus side on away goals.

Chelsea, on the other hand, despite a recent blip against West Brom, have looked a much-improved unit under Thomas Tuchel’s guidance.

The Londoners have also been handed a number of boosts on the personnel front on Tuesday.

First, it has been confirmed by Tuchel that both N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic are fit enough to feature in 24 hours’ time.

As for Porto, they are set to be without the club’s two top scorers for the first-leg clash, due to suspension:
