UEFA Champion League: Porto 0-2 Chelsea : Mason Mount and Chilwell give London club hard fought victory

Chelsea football club of England played out a hard fought 2-0 win over Portuguese side FC Porto on Wednesday night April 7.

 

Porto who removed Juventus in the previous stage of the Champions league came into this game as non-favorites but bamboozled Chelsea with intricate passing for large periods of the match but their lack of accuracy in front of goal was their undoing.

Mount opened the scoring shortly after the half-hour mark. He drimbled Nigeria’s Zaidu Sanusi after controlling Jorginho’s pass before finishing into the far corner.
