Chelsea v FC Porto Betting Preview
Chelsea portrayed their dominance once again as they beat Crystal Palace 4-1 over the weekend, returning to winning ways in Premier League after a shocking 5-2 defeat at the hands of West Brom. Now they have huge advantage of 2 goals against FC Porto and are heavy tipped to reach the semifinals. Goals from Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell propelled the Blues to a comfortable 2-0 win in the first leg against the Portuguese club. That clean sheet means that the Blues have conceded just twice so far in this season's competition.
Porto reduced the gap between them and Sporting Lisbon courtesy of a 2-0 victory at Tondela on Saturday. They are five points behind the leaders in the Primeira Liga standings and are fighting with Benfica for the second place, that guarantees Champions League participation next year. In the last-16 round, the Dragoes upset the odds when getting past Juventus via the away goals rule after drawing 4-4 on aggregate over two legs. Anyway, they lost 2-1 in regular time in Turin and, as a result, have only managed to prevail in one of their 20 Champions League knockout ties away from home.
Best OddsThe Blues are favourites to beat FC Porto again, with Unibet offering 22/25 for the home win. The Draw is backable at 29/10 with Ladbrokes while a major upset - Porto to win - is priced 17/5 by BetVictor.

Team News & Probable Line-Ups
Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Christensen; James, Kovacic, Kante, Alonso; Ziyech, Mount; Giroud
Chelsea have no injury concerns or suspensions for the second leg. Thiago Silva returns to the matchday squad after missing Saturday's win over Crystal Palace through suspension. Olivier Giroud is expected to replace Kai Havertz as central striker while Hakim Ziyech is favourite over Christian Pulisic to partner Mason Mount as offensive midfielder. Reece James and Marcos Alonso should are likey to start as wing backs, with Ngolo Kantè expected to anchor the midfield alongside Mateo Kovacic.
FC Porto (4-4-2): Marchesin; Manafa, Mbemba, Pepe, Sanusi; Corona, Uribe, Oliveira, Otavio; Marega, Taremi
Porto will welcome back Mehdi Taremi and Sergio Oliveira from suspension, but the latter is not 100% fit and could sit on the bench. Diogo Costa is absent for the Portuguese side and is joined by Mouhamed Mbaye on the sidelines. Moussa Marega was an unused substitute at the weekend but is certainly expected to lead the line while Liverpool loanee Mark Grujic could make room to Oliveira in midfield. At the back, Brazilian centre back Pepe and former Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba will be flanked by full backs Wilson Manafà and Zaidu Sanusi.
Our Chelsea v FC Porto PredictionsThomas Tuchel's men are unbeaten in nine in the Champions League since their crushing last-16 exit to Bayern Munich last year and have now kept three clean sheets in a row in the Champions League. After a sumptuous attacking display against Crystal Palace few days ago, we expect the Blues to hit Porto on the break as they are likely to commit bodies forward. In our opinion, Chelsea should come away with a second leg victory on Tuesday. It could be a win with the minimum margin anyway.
