Tuchel Take Note, See The Strong 'Comeback' Message Porto Manager Sent To Chelsea Ahead Of Clash

Tomorrow's champions league battle between Chelsea and Fc Porto is already shaping up to be an interesting one. The blues hold the advantage over their opponents after their stunning 2-0 win, 6 days ago at the same ground where tomorrow's tie will be played. Fc Porto have been one of the most difficult teams to play against in the Champions league this season as they have gotten results against the likes of Manchester city and Juventus. The Portuguese side knocked out Juventus as they made their way into the quarterfinals stage of the champions league and despite losing that quarterfinals first leg against Chelsea, Porto manager is still adamant that his side can spring a surprise. Speaking at his pre match press conference, Conceciao said...

"We are confident and we know it's a difficult opponent and tie but we are here to respond. There is always 90mins to play in the Porto way and the feeling of representing this club, it's DNA will be brought to the pitch. We have to believe, be resilient and understand the difficulties we have ahead of us can be overcomed. We always try to go in on that state of mind ever since I've been here and that is what I feel," said the manager.

This is quite a strong message that he is sending to Thomas Tuchel and his team, as tomorrow's clash looms. It's difficult to see a Porto comeback but this is the Champions league, anything is possible. Chelsea themselves are not taking their foot off the throttle as they prepare for the game tomorrow. They brushed aside Crystal Palace is blistering fashion so they are coming into the game full of confidence and momentum.
