Fuck yeah my home town team, first live Chelsea game for me since Chelsea Spurs in 2016! 

I live in England! Everyone here supporting Olympiakos too!

I'd 8-2 be a Barca fan right now

We shouldn't take Porto lightly but I feel neither Tuchel or the players will. They know the golden opportunity that was given to them. 

Christ, could this be 2012 all over again?

We have to be careful though. I watched Porto’s both games against Juve, they are defending really good. Mbemba has improved a lot since Newcastle days and Pepe still plays with big passion.

 

What is good that their 2 top scorers(Oliveira amd Taremi) will both be suspended in the first game, good chance to get another clean sheet but we also must score in Portugal to start the second leg from comfortable situation.

A genuine question now - will our games with Porto be played in the home stadiums or neutral venues? Arsenal v Benfica matches were played on neutral venues. Juventus v Porto in their home stadiums. How is the situation now? @Jason any idea?

Portugal has been removed from the UK travel ban list today. So, the games should be played in Lisbon and London, unless there's a sudden change to the list again.

This thought actually run through my mind right after TT was appointed. Thiago and him against PSG in the final. And I literally said on here how ironically beautiful it would be if it was Chelsea FC that gave Thiago and TT the CL triumph.

If that final happens does Tuchel gets medal regardless the result?

The quarter-final dates against Porto have been confirmed - Apr 7 & 14. So, our fixtures in April...

Apr 3 - WBA (h)
Apr 7 - Porto (a)
Apr 10 - Crystal Palace (a)
Apr 13 - Porto (h)
Apr 17 - Brighton (h) [OR could be the FA Cup SF if we get there]
Apr 24 - West Ham (a)

Only 1 trip outside London in that six-game run. If we qualify, the Champions League semi finals will be a few days after the West Ham game.

Bring it on, great draw for us, couldn’t have been better, but we must absolutely not take Porto lightly, we have a great chance to progress. Great ties in perspective

As a portuguese Chelsea fan and Porto hater I was praying for us not to draw Porto, simply because I won´t get any peace over here 😅

But it's the best that could happen to Chelsea, Porto was lucky to face such a poorly Juventus side. In the league they are 10 points behind the first place.

Oh and Porto fans thinking they won the lottery with this draw 🤣🤣 I can't wait

This is also the best draw that Porto fans could have wanted. When you look at it from a casual observer, our team was spiraling down and has a new manager. They will come at us with everything they have.

Nah, our road to winning the CL in 2012 was harder than this.

I watched both Porto:Juve games. 

First of all, Juve is bad this season. 

Porto also is nothing special. They got lucky with all goals. First game they scored in the first minute of both halfs. 

Second leg again penalty and freekick, basically two gifts from Juve. Ofc take the game seriously but I am not worried at all.
