Chelsea face Porto on Tuesday for the second game of the quarterfinals of the Champions League. The match will again be played on a neutral field, at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium, in Seville, Spain. After winning the first leg 2-0, London coach Thomas Tuchel asked to focus on the Portuguese team.
“There is no match more difficult than the next and there is no other obstacle than Porto tomorrow. We must not get lost in dreams, desires or speeches. We are here to focus on the reality in which we have a difficult battle to fight for the quarterfinals”, said the German coach.
Thomas Tuchel arrived at Chelsea in January of this year to replace idol Frank Lampard at the helm of the team. Since then, there have been 17 games, with 12 wins, 4 draws and one defeat. The last time the Blues made it to the semifinals was in the 2013/14 season. On the occasion, the English fell to Atletico Madrid, who would be runner-up.
