Uefa confirmed last week that both legs will be played in the neutral venue of Sevilla’s Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan, with tonight’s game assigned as Porto’s home leg.

Chelsea have been in inspired form since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, but they were handed the first defeat of his reign in a damning 5-2 home defeat to relegation-battling West Brom on Saturday.

For the first time since taking charge, Tuchel must now rally his players to put to bed what was a damaging blow for their top-four hopes.

When is Porto vs Chelsea?

Chelsea travel to Spain to face Porto in their Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday, April 7.

The all-important match will kick-off at 8pm BST at Sevilla’s Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan, after Uefa announced last week that both legs would be played in a neutral ground.

Due to the prevalent coroanvirus restrictions we’ve all become so accustomed to, the match will, of course, be played behind closed doors.

Chelsea then have an away tie against Crystal Palace in the Premier League to follow, with the return leg, again at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan, to be played next Tuesday.

Porto will be hoping to pull off another Champions League shock against Chelsea in the quarter-finals

Porto vs Chelsea: Team news

Silva’s ban following his red card against West Brom will be domestic, meaning he will be available to play against Porto.

Likewise, Chelsea will also have both Christian Pulisic and N’Golo Kante fit after overcoming their respective hamstring injuries, though the latter is not likely to start.

Meanwhile, Tammy Abraham – who was left out of the squad on Saturday – will also be fit to play, while Antonio Rudiger will start, despite his training ground bust-up with Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Interestingly, Malang Sarr – on loan from Chelsea – has been included in the squad with no restrictions on him playing.
