Chelsea fans were hoping to draw Porto in the Champions League quarter-final, and the Blues were indeed drawn against the Portuguese giants.
Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack, reacted to the draws last week by remembering the good times he had against the Portuguese side.
Ballack faced Porto on four occasions during his time at the club and he never tasted defeat in any of those four games.
Chelsea met Porto in the Champions League round of 16 in 2007, and Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Portugal before beating them 2-1 at Stamford Bridge, with Ballack getting on the scoresheet. It wasn’t an easy game at the Bridge, as Chelsea came back from a goal down to beat Porto, with Arjen Robben scoring the leveller in the second half and Ballack getting the winner, under a certain Jose Mourinho.
Ballack also featured in the 2009 group stage clash against Porto which the Blues won 1-0 both home and away.
Ballack wrote on social media: ‘Good memories against Porto at the Bridge.’
While Chelsea have always gotten a good result against Porto, it has never really been an easy game, which points to why Chelsea must not take the Portuguese side for granted when they meet next month.
