Porto are set to play Chelsea at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Wednesday for the first leg of the quarter-final of the UEFA Champions League.

Porto come into this game on the back of a 2-1 win over Daniel Ramos’ Santa Clara yesterday in the Primeira Liga. Second-half goals Portugal international Sergio Oliveira and Spanish forward Toni Martinez ensured victory for Sergio Conceicao’s Porto. Brazilian forward Carlos scored the consolation goal for Santa Clara.

Chelsea, on the other hand, lost 5-2 to Sam Allardyce’s West Bromwich Albion on Saturday in the English Premier League. A first-half brace from Brazilian midfielder Matheus Pereira, a second-half brace from attacker Callum Robinson and a goal from Senegalese striker Mbaye Diagne sealed the deal for West Bromwich Albion.

Porto vs Chelsea Prediction

Porto beat Juventus in the Round of 16, but will be missing some key players. Midfielder Sergio Oliveira and attacker Mehdi Taremi could prove to be crucial absences for Sergio Conceicao’s side.

Chelsea, on the other hand, were shocked 5-2 by West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, and will be keen to get back to winning ways. Given their talent in the squad, Thomas Tuchel’s men are regarded by many as the dark horses in this season’s competition.

Chelsea will be the favourites to win here.

Prediction: Porto 1-2 Chelsea
