The Blues, who enjoyed a two-goal advantage from the first game, lost 1-0 (Tarmi, 94) against Porto in a rematch • Will return to the top four for the first time since 2014
The Blues are in the semifinals again.
Return to status after 7 seasons
By tonight (Tuesday) in 8 of the 10 times Chelsea have won their first game in the knockout stages of the Champions League they have also skipped on, which is exactly what happened tonight.
The Blues got the ticket to the Champions League semi-final after a 1-0 loss in extra time against Porto, who did not exactly manage to erase the double lag from the first encounter.
Chelsea, who came to the meeting as a clear favorite and with an advantage of two away goals by Mount and Ben Chillwell, this time hosted the game in Sevilla due to the Corona restrictions and in the first half it seemed that Thomas Tuchel's trainees feel a strong longing for Stamford Bridge. We hardly endangered the Portuguese goal.
In the second half, not much changed although in the 57th minute Mount approached the first goal, but the Englishman missed the opportunity.
Only in the 94th minute, Mahdi Tarmi managed to find the net and it was a bit late for Porto.
On the other hand, a reason to party for Chelsea, who are returning to semi-finals for the first time since 2014.
