Team news, stats, kick-off time ahead of the Champions League quarter-final second leg between Chelsea and Porto on Tuesday.

Team news

Thomas Tuchel is blessed with a fully-fit squad for Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final second leg in Seville. Thiago Silva could earn an immediate recall to defence after serving a domestic suspension against Crystal Palace.

Midfielder N’Golo Kante has recovered from a hamstring injury and is in contention to feature from the start, but Tuchel said: “We need to be careful about him. The question is whether we want him to start or finish the game. It is not answered yet, I will do this tomorrow.”

Goals from Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell secured a comfortable 2-0 victory for Chelsea in last week’s first leg. Chelsea have kept three clean sheets in a row in the Champions League and are unbeaten in nine European matches.

Porto have to throw caution to the wind and will need to score at least three goals to turn the tables on Chelsea and reach the semi-finals.

But Porto manager Sergio Conceicao has admitted they will not take any risks with Sergio Oliveira’s fitness. Oliveira has scored 17 goals in all competitions for Porto and can return after suspension, but boss Conceicao is not sure whether he can manage 90 minutes.
