Match background Only this chapter

Porto and Chelsea have become familiar rivals in the UEFA Champions League over the past two decades and are both looking to end a lengthy wait for a semi-final appearance as they meet in the first leg of their quarter-final tie.

• The Portuguese side have not won a last-eight tie since claiming their second European Cup under future Chelsea manager José Mourinho 17 years ago and, though they are in this stage for the second time in three seasons, will need no reminding that their last quarter-final ended in a heavy defeat against English opposition to make it three eliminations out of three at this stage by Premier League sides.

• Chelsea boast a formidable record in UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, although this is their first appearance at this stage since 2014.

• This game is being played at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán in Seville, where the second leg will also take place – a stadium where Chelsea have already enjoyed a big win in this season's UEFA Champions League.

Previous meetings
• Chelsea have won five of the sides' eight previous meetings, all in the UEFA Champions League, although when the teams last met, in the 2015/16 group stage, each recorded a home victory.

• Goals from André André (39) and Maicon (51) either side of an equaliser from Willian (45+2) gave Porto the points in Portugal on Matchday 2, before a 2-0 home success at Stamford Bridge on Matchday 6. Iván Marcano's 12th-minute own goal and a Willian strike seven minutes after the break took Chelsea through in first place in Group G and left Porto in third.

• That was Chelsea's fourth win in their last five matches against Porto, who they faced in the 2009/10 group stage when Chelsea won 1-0 home and away, in each case thanks to a second-half Nicolas Anelka goal.

• Three seasons before, in the round of 16, Chelsea held on for a 1-1 draw in Portugal before winning 2-1 at home.

• In the group stage of 2004/05, Mourinho's first season with Chelsea after guiding Porto to their 2004 UEFA Champions League triumph, Chelsea won 3-1 at Stamford Bridge while Porto prevailed 2-1 at home.

Form guide
• Porto's record in European Cup quarter-finals is W2 L6:
2018/19 Liverpool L 1-6 (0-2 a, 1-4 h)
2014/15 Bayern München L 4-7 (3-1 h, 1-6 a)
2008/09 Manchester United L 2-3 (2-2 a, 0-1 h)
2003/04 Lyon W 4-2 (2-0 h, 2-2 a)
1999/2000 Bayern München L 2-3 (1-1 h, 1-2 a)
1996/97 Manchester United L 0-4 (0-4 a, 0-0 h)
1990/91 Bayern München L 1-3 (1-1 a, 0-2 h)
1986/87 Brøndby W 2-1 (1-0 h, 1-1 a)

• Porto are seeking a first semi-final appearance since 2003/04 when they lifted the trophy under Mourinho. Their only two victories in seven previous quarter-final appearances came in the seasons when they were crowned European champions.

• Porto's six-game unbeaten sequence in this season's UEFA Champions League was ended by a 3-2 extra-time defeat at Juventus in the round of 16 second leg, although that was enough to take them through on away goals thanks to a 2-1 home win.

• That was the Portuguese side's first loss in the competition since a 3-1 Matchday 1 defeat at Manchester City. They won the next three matches – at home against Olympiacos (2-0) and Marseille (3-0) plus a 2-0 victory in France – before a goalless draw against City in Portugal ensured they would finish in second place in Group C. They made it five successive UEFA Champions League clean sheets with a 2-0 win at Olympiacos on Matchday 6; Juve's goal in the round of 16 first leg was the first Porto had conceded in Europe in 549 minutes.

• This is Porto's 24th UEFA Champions League campaign, fewer only than Real Madrid and Barcelona (both 25). The Portuguese side have now qualified for the knockout phase on each of their last four appearances in the group stage.

• Porto's 2019/20 UEFA Champions League campaign lasted a single tie, Krasnodar beating them on away goals in the third qualifying round (1-0 a, 2-3 h). They went on to finish first in a UEFA Europa League section including Rangers, Young Boys and Feyenoord, but were beaten by Bayer Leverkusen in the round of 32 (1-2 a, 1-3 h).

• Porto have lost five of their last 12 matches in the UEFA Champions League proper (W6 D1) but only three of their last ten home European matches (W5 D2).

• Sérgio Conceição's side won the club's eighth domestic double in 2019/20, claiming Porto's 29th league title and a 17th Portuguese Cup.

• The Matchday 5 draw at home to City ended Porto's run of three successive defeats against English opponents, although Porto have still lost four of their last six games with Premier League clubs, winning none.

• Their overall home record against English clubs is W8 D7 L5; all five defeats have come in their last nine matches, including the 4-1 loss to eventual champions Liverpool in the 2018/19 quarter-final second leg.

• This is Porto's first game in Spain since a 2-0 win at Athletic Club in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League group stage, a game that made their record in the country W7 D2 L14.

• They have played three matches at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, beating Sevilla 2-1 in the round of 32 first leg in their victorious 2010/11 UEFA Europa League campaign and losing 4-1 to the Spanish side in the quarter-final second leg in the same competition three years later. Most famously, Porto beat Celtic 3-2 after extra time in Seville in the 2003 UEFA Cup final.

• This is Porto's first game against an English club at a neutral venue.

• Porto's record in two-legged ties with English clubs is W3 L9. They have lost the last six, most recently against Liverpool at this stage two seasons ago, and have not beaten English opposition in a knockout tie since Mourinho's side eliminated Manchester United in the 2003/04 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (2-1 h, 1-1 a).

• Chelsea's record in European Cup quarter-finals is W7 L2:
2013/14 Paris Saint-Germain W 3-3 away goals (1-3 a, 2-0 h)
2011/12 Benfica W 3-1 (1-0 a, 2-1 h)
2010/11 Manchester United L 1-3 (0-1 h, 1-2 a)
2008/09 Liverpool W 7-5 (3-1 a, 4-4 h)
2007/08 Fenerbahçe W 3-2 (1-2 a, 2-0 h)
2006/07 Valencia W 3-2 (1-1 h, 2-1 a)
2004/05 Bayern München W 6-5 (4-2 h, 2-3 a)
2003/04 Arsenal W 3-2 (1-1 h, 2-1 a)
1999/00 Barcelona L4-6 (3-1 h, 1-5 a aet)

• This season, Chelsea made smooth progress through Group E, winning all three away games and dropping points only in their first and last fixtures, at home to Sevilla (0-0) and Krasnodar (1-1) respectively. Rennes were beaten 3-0 at Stamford Bridge before the English club picked up maximum points at Krasnodar (4-0), Rennes (2-1) and Sevilla (4-0); the latter result made sure of first place in the section, Olivier Giroud becoming the first Chelsea player to score four times in a European Cup match – and at 34 years 63 days the oldest hat-trick scorer in UEFA Champions League history.

• With Thomas Tuchel having replaced Frank Lampard as head coach, Chelsea then eased past Spanish Liga leaders Atlético de Madrid in the round of 16, winning 1-0 in Bucharest before a 2-0 home victory.

• Fourth in the Premier League in 2019/20, this is Chelsea's 17th venture into the UEFA Champions League and a third in four years. The exception came in 2018/19, when they won the UEFA Europa League under Maurizio Sarri.

• Last season Lampard's side recovered from a Matchday 1 defeat at home to Valencia (0-1) to progress as Group H runners-up with 11 points, finishing behind the Spanish side on head-to-head record, before losing to eventual champions Bayern München (0-3 h, 1-4 a) in the last 16.

• The loss in Munich in last season's round of 16 second leg is Chelsea's only defeat in 15 European away matches (W11 D3).

• This season's six victories have made it nine wins in Chelsea's last 15 UEFA Champions League matches (D4 L2).

• The Matchday 5 win at Seville this season made Chelsea's record in Spain – all against local sides – W5 D8 L6; they have lost only one of their last 13 matches in the country (W4 D8).

• European champions in 2012 having been runners-up four years earlier, Chelsea have now won their UEFA Champions League group 12 times, although they were runners-up in their section on each of their previous two participations before this season.

• Chelsea's record against Portuguese clubs is W10 D1 L2, their most recent fixtures those 2015/16 meetings with Porto. They had won eight in a row before that 2-1 defeat at Porto in September 2015, a result that made their record in Portugal W3 D1 L2.

• The Blues beat Benfica in the 2013 UEFA Europa League final when Branislav Ivanović's header in the last minute of added time earned a 2-1 win in Amsterdam. Their 2006/07 win against Porto aside, Chelsea's only other two-legged knockout tie against Portuguese opposition also featured Benfica, who they beat in the quarter-finals of their victorious 2011/12 UEFA Champions League campaign (1-0 a, 2-1 h).

• That 2013 final against Benfica is the English club's only previous game against Portuguese opposition on neutral territory.

• Chelsea had kept seven successive clean sheets before the weekend; they had conceded only two goals in their previous 14 games in all competitions, keeping 12 clean sheets. That run of seven straight clean sheets equalled the club record set in 1905/06 and matched in 2003/04 and 2005/06 (twice).

• Thiago Silva started at the weekend, his first appearance since limping off in the first half of the 1-0 Premier League win at Tottenham on 4 February with a muscle injury. It proved a brief return, as he was sent off for two yellow cards after 29 minutes with Chelsea leading 1-0.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with AC Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Real Madrid's 2018 triumph made them the first team to win three successive European Cups twice. The Spanish side won the first five editions of the tournament, between 1956 and 1960; Ajax (1971–73) and Bayern München (1974–76) have also lifted the trophy three years in a row.

• Only two teams have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Borussia Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome), while Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

Knockout stage
• Real Madrid have qualified for the UEFA Champions League knockout phase a record 25 times, including 24 in succession. The first leg of their 2020/21 round of 16 tie against Atalanta was their 100th knockout match in the competition; they have now played 101 knockout games, ahead of Bayern München (98) and Barcelona (97).

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 49 times, including six in 2018/19 – a competition record for a single season – and Paris Saint-Germain in last season's round of 16.

• Before 2018/19, only twice – Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos in the 1995/96 semi-finals and Internazionale's victory against Bayern in the 2010/11 round of 16 – had a side progressed after a home first-leg loss. However, Ajax again (against Real Madrid) and Manchester United (against Paris Saint-Germain) both achieved the feat in the 2018/19 round of 16 before Tottenham (against Ajax) did likewise in the semi-finals.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by Barcelona against Paris in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home; Roma equalled that margin in the 2017/18 quarter-finals, turning round a 4-1 first-leg loss at Barcelona with a 3-0 home success, while in the 2018/19 semi-finals Liverpool lost 3-0 in the first leg at Barcelona but went through after a 4-0 home victory.

• Thirty-five ties have been decided on away goals, including 13 where the triumphant team lost the first leg. Bayern and Monaco have benefited from the away goals rule five times – more than any other club – whereas Internazionale have been eliminated by that method a record four times.

• In all, 31 ties have required extra time. Fifteen have been settled by extra time alone: eight round of 16 encounters including Porto-Juventus in 2020/21, five quarter-finals, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool, and the 2013/14 final between Real Madrid and Atlético.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Lyon on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties. Bayern, Chelsea and Atlético have all appeared in three shoot-outs, sharing the competition record, with Bayern, Atlético and Liverpool having won the most (two apiece).

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Atlético and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid's defeat of Manchester City in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool (versus Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at Schalke in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting CP in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16.

• Bayern eventually beat Sporting by a record aggregate margin of 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie until it was equalled by Liverpool's 7-6 aggregate win against Roma in the 2017/18 semi-final.

• There have been 216 UEFA Champions League quarter-finalists. Spain has provided the largest number (52), followed by England (47), with Germany in third place on 33 and Italy fourth on 30. Twelve other countries have provided teams for the last eight.

• In 2019/20 Barcelona reached a record 13th successive European Cup quarter-final, a run that was ended this season.

• Bayern have reached 19 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, one more than Barça and two more than Real Madrid.

• The biggest European Cup quarter-final victory was Real Madrid's 8-0 first-leg defeat of Sevilla in 1957/58. In 2019/20 Bayern became the second team to score eight in a last-eight match, defeating Barcelona 8-2.

• Manchester United's 7-1 win against Roma in 2006/07 is the biggest victory in a UEFA Champions League quarter-final match, a margin Bayern matched against Barcelona in 2019/20 (8-2). Bayern beat Porto 6-1 in 2014/15, Barcelona have twice won 5-1, against Chelsea after extra time (1999/2000) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2010/11), while there have been four 4-0 victories.

• Bayern and Manchester City jointly hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match. Bayern beat both Basel (2011/12) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg, while City beat Schalke by the same scoreline at the same stage of the 2018/19 competition.

• A record five clubs from England participated in the 2017/18 knockout phase. Including 2019/20, England has also provided four clubs on eight other occasions – as has Spain six times and Germany three. England is the only nation to have provided four quarter-finalists in a season, 2018/19 being the third occasion after 2007/08 and 2008/09.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to have lifted the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win it three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) and Zinédine Zidane (2016, 2017, 2018) have replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburg 1983), José Mourinho (Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

Goalscoring records
• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in Barcelona's 7-1 win against Bayer Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat matched by Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Fourteen more players, also including Messi and Robert Lewandowski twice, have scored four times in a game, most recently Olivier Giroud for Chelsea at Sevilla in the 2020/21 group stage. That was the fourth quadruple in succession to be scored away from home after Bayern's Serge Gnabry and Lewandowski (group stage v Tottenham and Crvena zvezda respectively) and Josip Iličić (Atalanta v Valencia, round of 16 second leg) all achieved the feat in 2019/20.

• Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 67 goals in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds, more than any other player. Messi is second on 47 goals, ahead of Lewandowski (24), Thomas Müller (23), and Karim Benzema, Raúl González and Andriy Shevchenko (all 18).

• Messi's hat-trick against PSV Eindhoven on Matchday 1 of the 2018/19 competition was his eighth in the competition, a mark Ronaldo matched against Atlético de Madrid in that season's round of 16 second leg.

Oldest and youngest players
• Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete in the UEFA Champions League having featured against Real Madrid on Matchday 6 in 2007/08 aged 43 years 252 days. Alessandro Costacurta is the oldest outfield player; the Milan defender was 40 years and 211 days when he played against AEK Athens in 2006/07.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years 59 days, in Roma's 1-1 draw at CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Youssoufa Moukoko is the youngest player to have appeared, aged 16 years 18 days for Borussia Dortmund at Zenit on 8 December 2020. He replaced Celestine Babayaro, who was 16 years 87 days when he started for Anderlecht against Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994; Babayaro was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Ansu Fati's winner for Barcelona at Inter on Matchday 6 in 2019/20 made him the youngest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history, at the age of 17 years 40 days. He eclipsed the previous record of Olympiacos's Peter Ofori-Quaye (17 years 195 days) that had lasted since 1 October 1997.
