UPDATES- Thomas Tuchel's side went into this 'home' last-eight second leg - with both games being played in Seville during the current Covid-19 pandemic - protecting a two-goal lead they only briefly threatened to surrender in the dying seconds following taremi brilliant finish.
Chelsea, who will now face either Liverpool or Real Madrid in the semi-final, played within themselves but it was enough to keep a disappointing Porto at bay, the Portuguese side rarely testing keeper Mendy with their surprisingly cautious approach, which they only cast aside when it was too late.
Mendy's poor clearance almost offered Jesus Corona a first-half chance but he could not take advantage, while Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount had opportunities after the break.Taremi's goal was out of character with the rest of Porto's performance and came too late to alter the inevitable course of this quarter-final. So can Chelsea win the Champions League this season? Comment/Like/Share
