Porto star Pepe has given a hint the Portuguese side intends to play a defensive game against Chelsea after revealing not conceding a goal against Chelsea is important for Porto.

Porto will be the ‘home’ side on Wednesday evening but, due to travel restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the match will be played in Sevilla.

“Even in different circumstances, we play at home and we have to play with this aspect,” Pepe said.

“The team is well, positive and desire that the game arrives in order to be able to demonstrate the work that it has done to our coach and our fans.

“It is always good to play at home, because it reminds us of our colours, but we are prepared and focused.

“Not conceding goals at home is very important. In that sense, the team is focused and prepared to make a good game and not suffer, which is also important.”
