El Chelsea finally stumbled upon Thomas Tuchel on the bench. Since the German came to the bench of the ‘Blues’, everything was smiles. 15 games without losing and only two goals against. In front of West Bromwich Albion It seemed that the streak was not going to stop when Christian Pulisic made it 1-0, but the expulsion of Thiago Silva after half an hour precipitated the rival’s win and a lost 2-5 that creates doubts before the big challenge.
The Champions League is unfinished business for Chelsea in recent years. Last season, with the defeat at Stamford Bridge against Bayern Munich by 0-3, is the performance to forget. In the end, it has been seven years without reaching the semifinals, since 2013/2014, and this seems the clearest opportunity of all.
Because those of Tuchel are wide favorites to go to the round and this is paid a 1.29. They are also used to win the game, at a quota 1.75. Very low in our opinion for the time of the tournament that is and to play away from home.
It is true that Porto is going to have significant casualties due to the accumulation of cards, such as those of Sergio Oliveira and Taremi, but the Portuguese know that their season goes through this game and the second one.
Knowing that none of them will want to leave all their cards in the first leg, the best option seems to us to keep the both teams do not score a 1.75.
