In the playoffs, Porto got into rivals against Juventus and in this confrontation the “old lady” was considered the clear favorite. However, already in the first match, the Portuguese champion cast doubt on this status, having won at home. The away match turned out to be especially difficult, but the “dragons” made their way to the next round, losing 2:3 in overtime, but two away goals allowed them to go further.
In the Portuguese championship, Porto does not have much success. Sergio Conceizau's charges are currently on the second line in the table, but the leader Sporting is losing as many as eight points, which reduces their chances of success in the fight for the title to a minimum. The "dragons" have two significant losses for today's match. They will not play due to the disqualification of Mehdi Taremi, while the captain and main character of the Turin match, Sergio Oliveira, will also miss the meeting.
The first rival of Chelsea was Atletico Madrid, which the London club was supposed to oppose under the leadership of Thomas Tuchel, who famously started at the helm of the team. Despite such a high status of the opponent, the “pensioners” beat them both at home and away with a total score of 3:0, not allowing the “mattress” to create even one full-fledged dangerous moment at their gates.
In the Premier League, Chelsea are aiming to finish in the top four and advance to the Champions League, but so far the club is in fifth place. The “retirees” of West Ham skipped ahead in the last round, losing sensationally at home 2:5 to West Brom.
In this fight Christian Pulisic was injured, but at the press conference after the defeat from the blackbirds Tuchel was optimistic in this regard, so at least the American should appear in the game. By the way, this is the only possible personnel loss for Chelsea before this meeting.
Chelsea, apart from the misfire with West Brom, are in great shape and in their last 17 games the retirees have suffered only one defeat, while in the current Champions League they have not lost to anyone at all. Chelsea have a tremendous advantage in the Class. The team is ready for big matches and the nominal guests shouldn't have any problems with victory.
We believe that the Portuguese have no chance. Prediction is Chelsea win. Such an outcome in bookmaker 1xBet is offered with odds of 1.82.
Porto traditionally relies on defense and today they are unlikely to change their style. Chelsea also know how to defend well. Only in one of the last eight matches the “pensioners” conceded, so the match is unlikely to be effective.
Our second bet will be under 2.5 goals total. This bet can be placed for 1.67.
