Chelsea and Porto will lock horns on Tuesday night for the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final clash at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in Seville.
Chelsea have the advantage heading into this game, after winning the first leg 2-0. The Blues will just have to consolidate on the first leg victory to seal a place in the semifinals of the competition.
In his predictions for the second leg quarterfinal clashes, Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to win this tie against Porto. Owen believes Chelsea’s strong defensive setup will be a plus for the Blues, and with Porto aiming for the win, it will give the Blues opportunity to hit them on the break.
“Chelsea earned themselves a nice cushion with a 2-0 win away in Porto last week,” Owen told BetVictor.
“If you’re going to have a serious go in Europe, you must be solid at the back.
“The Blues certainly have been that, with the exception of their recent defeat to West Brom, since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival.
“I’m expecting another solid performance from the home side. There will come a point where Porto have to go for it, and when that happens, I think Chelsea can nick one at the other end.”
Owen predicted a 1-0 win for Chelsea.
