One of the best Malang Sarr performance was his fine display in Porto vs Juventus match where he marked and isolated Cristiano Ronaldo and made him not score or perform well in the game.

Malang Sarr was a pain in the ass for Cristiano Ronaldo and he formed a great partnership with Pepe to frustrate Juventus that night and Porto succeeded in eliminating Juventus to qualify for the quarterfinals.

However, most Chelsea fans are not aware that Chelsea will be playing against Chelsea when Porto and Chelsea clash next month.

Many Chelsea is wondering and asking questions if Malang Sarr will play against Chelsea, well he is eligible to play against his parent club.

According to UEFA’s guidelines, players who are on loan are allowed to face their parent club in European competitions.

Will Malang Sarr be the man to help Porto to win Chelsea, will he frustrate and stop Timo Werner, Oliver Giroud and Hakim Ziyech from scoring just like he did against Cristiano Ronaldo?

Well, we will wait till April 6/7 to find out what will be the outcome of the game.
