Chelsea secured the result they needed to take them into the semi finals of the Champions League despite an incredible stoppage time overhead kick from Porto’s Mehdi Taremi.
An intense opening saw the Portuguese outfit press the Premier League outfit with intensity, but Chelsea soon found their rhythm and midfielders Jorginho and N’Golo Kante performed exceptionally in central midfield to keep their opponents comfortably at bay.
Substitute Taremi got the game’s only goal in the 93rd minute, rising highest to acrobatically fire into the top corner, but it wasn’t enough to change the overall result of the tie.
The Blues are arguably the dark horses of the competition, enjoying a wonderful run of form ever since Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as manager, and will face the winners of the tie between Liverpool and Real Madrid.
