Chelsea 0-1 Porto (Agg: 2-1): Chelsea make Champions League semi-finals for first time since 2014



Mtach Report as Chelsea hold off Porto to reach their first Champions League semi-final since 2014; Mehdi Taremi’s brilliant overhead kick causes late scare in Seville; Chelsea will play Real Madrid or Liverpool

Chelsea reached the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in seven years despite Mehdi Taremi’s sublime overhead kick giving them a late scare in a 1-0 defeat by Porto, going through 2-1 on aggregate.

Porto were intense in the first half, but lacking in quality in the final third as neither side registered a shot on target until the 66th minute, when Edouard Mendy did well to save and hold sub Taremi’s weak header.

In their home leg, Chelsea were savvy and professional in equal measure as they kept Porto at arm’s length, until the last minute of stoppage time when Taremi produced an incredible, acrobatic overhead kick.

But it was too little, too late, and Chelsea will now play either Liverpool or Real Madrid (Agg: 1-3) in the semi-finals on April 27/28 and May 4/5.
