Chelsea’s Champions League semi-final fixture dates, venues and possible opponents
Chelsea are through to the semi-final of the Champions League after beating Porto over two legs.
The Blues got the better of the Portuguese outfit over the two games – with one foot already in the last four after the 2-0 first-leg victory, they were comfortable throughout the second leg and only conceded a 93rd-minute wonder goal from Mehdi Taremi to lose 1-0 on the night.
So Thomas Tuchel’s impressive start to life at Stamford Bridge continues, with Chelsea looking like a team increasingly difficult to come up against.
The Blues, whose only triumph in the competition came back in 2012, have their best chance of lifting the famous trophy again since that famous night in Munich.
With Chelsea now through to the semi-finals, football.london take a look at who the Blues could meet in the final four, when it will be and where it is.
Who will Chelsea play in the 2020/21 Champions League semi-final?
Chelsea will face the winner of Liverpool and Real Madrid – who meet for the second time in just over a week tomorrow night.
Madrid have the 3-1 advantage going into the second leg at Anfield after an impressive display at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
The 13-time champions of Europe, despite perhaps not boasting the world-class players that they have done in recent times, still look like a dangerous threat to anyone wanting to win the Champions League.
However, the Reds aren’t out of the tie just yet – and have proved countless times over the years that they can defy the odds and produce a special comeback.
If Liverpool do progress, then it will be Déjà vu for Chelsea supporters – with the two English sides meeting in the 2004/05, 2006/07 and 2007/08 semi-finals.
PSG, who knocked out Bayern Munich tonight, will take on either Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund in the other semi-final.
When are the 2020/21 Champions League semi-finals?
The first leg of the semi-final will take place on either April 27 or 28, with the return fixture set to be played a week later on May 4 or 5.
Where are the 2020/21 Champions League semi-finals?
The two legs will be split evenly, with one game being played at Stamford Bridge and the other at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano (Real Madrid’s training ground) or Anfield (Liverpool’s stadium), depending on who progresses in Wednesday night’s showdown – and proving there are no further travel bans due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
