Recalled that the blues won the First leg by 2-0 which gave them the advantage coming into the second leg tonight. The blues had fewer opportunities compared to their Opponent who were really in search of a comeback.
So, Mehdi Taremi scored a beautiful goal at the stoppage time but it wasn't enough to stop Chelsea from going through.
However, Uefa has named 'Christian Pulisic ' as their man of the match after the American put out some professional display tonight.
According to statistics, Pulisic was fouled 11 times against Porto tonight and that's the most fouls a player has suffered in a single UCL match as hee proved to be very tough to handle for Porto's defenders.
UEFA Technical Observer on Pulisic said "A very dynamic performance all over the pitch. He was a constant danger to Porto and also had a good defensive mentality."
