Chelsea Vs FC Porto Final Betting Analysis
In the first leg, it didn’t seem as if Porto players were on the same page. Porto had more shots, 12-to-6, and more shots on goal 5-to-3, but Chelsea converted 2 of their 3 shots on goal while Porto converted zero.
The Portuguese Liga squad controlled the ball 40% of the time. They rushed their shots, which is the main reason they couldn’t get a single shot past terrific Chelsea goalie Eduoard Mendy.
Expect Porto to play a more controlled match. They will be aggressive, but they’ll try to set up their shots better. Chelsea will play a defensive-minded match and look to score on counter plays.
Chelsea could settle for a draw or even a single goal loss and still win on the aggregate. The Blues won’t lose this match. They’ve got too much pride for that to happen, making the draw the best play.
