On Wednesday night, April 7, Chelsea football club of England won a hard-fought 2-0 victory over FC Porto of Portugal.

 

Porto, who eliminated Juventus in the previous round of the Champions League, came into this game as underdogs, but bamboozled Chelsea with complex passing for long stretches of the game, but their lack of consistency in front of goal proved costly.

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount speaking to BT Sport said: “We knew it would be a tough game. We kept going, we got the goal in the first half and the second secured a good win. It’s only half the tie, there’s a second leg to go.”

“It’s about time it [his first Champions League goal] came. I’ve been waiting patiently. It was a good time for it to come. A good pass by Jorginho, I had space and I hit it.

“I’m always working on it [finishing]. I don’t think you can work on it enough. I think I can improve on it and score more goals.

“He [Ben Chilwell] showed great composure. I thought he’d shoot in front of goal but he took it past the keeper. He’ll be buzzing with that.

“The job’s not done. They’ll fight for the next leg and we’ll have to give it our all. We’ll be ready.”
