Chelsea Chomped

Chelsea played against FC Porto for their second game in the Champions League. They won their first match very impressively, but it wasn’t the case this time around.

Bras Andre scored the first goal of the match in the 39th minute. This gave Porto the lead and they almost carried it for the whole of the first half!

  
In extra time, before the break, Willian equalised for the visitors. However, in the second half, Maicon reclaimed Porto’s hold over Chelsea. They had won!

FC Porto is now at the top of Group G with four points; Chelsea is down to third place with three. There isn’t much separating the team’s, but could the Blues be too disheartened to climb up again?

The Champions League Draw

The Champions League groups have been drawn! Even though there is no Premier League club having to face Barcelona or Real Madrid quite yet, some of them are still playing against pretty strong contenders.

Manchester United haven’t been given the biggest scare. They were placed in group B along with PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and Wolfsburg. The likelihood is that they will survive this stage.

Chelsea were also not given too much to worry about. They were placed in group G along with Porto, Dynamo Kyiv and Maccabi Tel Aviv. Porto may be the only threat posed to the Blues and so they are likely to go through with them to the next round. Mourinho is a happy man!

Manchester City have been granted with smaller luck. However, they still have a stern chance of succeeding this round. They have been placed in group D along with Juventus, Sevilla and Borussia Mönchengladbach. Juventus are a powerhouse and hopefullly the only team to rumble the City!

Arsenal, as usual, will be going head to head with the biggest challenge of all. They have been placed in group F along with Bayern Munich, Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb. Bayern Munich knocked the Gunners out in the last-16 stage in 2014, however, it would be a shame if it was Olympiakos that would overtake Arsenal this season.

The Champions League matches will start on Tuesday the 15th of September and we wish all the clubs the best of luck!
