FC Porto vs Chelsea: Prediction and Betting Tips
Full focus on the UCL for FC Porto
In one of the biggest shocks of the season in the UCL, Porto eliminated Juventus in the last round on away goals rule after both matches finished 4-4 on aggregate. The Portuguese proved they are a solid side this season especially in defense after recording five clean sheets in their eight UCL matches this season.
Coach Sergio Conceicao will feel his team has a big chance in qualifying to the semi-finals against Chelsea after avoiding other top teams in the draw. The two-time winners of this competition will hope to repeat the feat after an impressive run so far this season.
Porto’s current record against English clubs isn’t encouraging though. The Dragoes have lost four of their last six matches against English clubs. Having lost hopes of winning their domestic title, coach Conceicao will make sure his team overcomes that record and build a comfortable lead before going to London in the second leg.
Chelsea on a great UCL form
It was inevitable to suffer the first defeat under Thomas Tuchel and it happened against West Brom on the weekend. The German coach hopes that will be a wake-up call for his team and bounce back quickly as they travel to Spain to play the first leg of the quarter-final tie due to Covid restrictions.
The Blues’ last trip to Spain was a great one as they beat La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid 1-0 in the 1st leg of the last round. Chelsea have played Porto eight times before winning five and losing two. Tuchel will hope that positive form will continue in their 1st leg match.
The Blues have been on great form in the UCL this season. In the eight matches they played they conceded just two goals and scored 17 didn’t lose any game and have six clean sheets. Very impressive record indeed.
- In five of Porto’s eight matches in the UCL, both teams have not scored
- In Chelsea’s six of eight matches both teams have not scored
- In Porto’s last three matches out of five in the Portuguese League, both teams have not scored
- In Chelsea’s last four matches out of five in the Premier League, both teams have not scored
FC Porto vs Chelsa Prediction
Both teams see this tie as an opportunity for them to advance to the semi-finals and from then on anything is possible as they say. Chelsea are clear favorites with the bookies for probably having better results in the UCL this season.
We think Porto are a very organized and tough team as they showed against Juventus and they will make it very difficult for Chelsea. We won’t predict the outright winner for this match but instead, we will follow the stats and predict that we won’t see both teams scoring in this match.
