Moments after Pulisic hits the crossbar, Chilwell puts Chelsea 2-0 ahead with a superb solo goal. After a long ball from Rudiger, there is a mix-up in the Porto defence and Chilwell is on hand to capitalise. He races through at goal and has only Marchesin to beat. The Chelsea left back calmly dribbles around the Porto goalkeeper before tapping home into the empty net. 21:37 Defensive reinforcements for Chelsea Tuchel makes some defensive changes here as Kante comes on for Mount while Silva replaces James with just 10 minutes remaining in Seville. 21:36 Now that is definitely a yellow! 79 mins: One of the more blatant yellow cards you will see. Grujic completely wipes out Pulisic as the Chelsea forward tries to spring a counter-attack. 21:30 GOAL ALERT: BAYERN MUNICH 2-3 PSG (MBAPPE) What a game we have in Munich. PSG retake the lead over Bayern as Mbappe gets his second goal of the game in the 68th minute. 21:29 Porto penalty shout! 72 mins: Down goes Marega in the Chelsea penalty area but the referee immediately waves play on. He falls to the ground following pressure from Azpilicueta. The referee briefly stops play as VAR check the incident but the Porto man goes down far too easily and Chelsea can relax! 21:23 GOAL ALERT: BAYERN MUNICH 2-2 PSG (MULLER) From two goals down, Bayern are back level at 2-2 against PSG at the Allianz Arena. It is Muller with the equaliser for the Bundesliga giants on the hour mark. Cracking game in Munich! 21:21 Double change for Chelsea Tuchel makes his first substitutions of the night with just 25 minutes remaining. Pulisic and Giroud come on for German duo Werner and Havertz.  21:20 How has Azpilicueta missed that?! 63 mins: The first yellow card of the game goes to Porto's Mbemba for hauling down Chilwell, with Chelsea winning a free-kick in a very dangerous position. It is whipped in brilliantly by James and Azpilicueta somehow heads miles wide from just a few yards out. How has he not scored that??? 21:18 Havertz breathes a sigh of relief 60 mins: Now it's Chelsea's turn to go on the attack. Rudiger fires at goal but Marchesin fumbles in the Porto net. Werner gets to the loose ball first and squares it into the path of Havertz, who somehow can't divert home from just a few yards out. Fortunately for the German, his compatriot was offside in the build-up. 21:16 Porto getting closer... Porto really piling on the pressure now and Diaz goes ever so close to equalising for the Portuguese giants. Space opens up for the Porto striker who needs no invitation to let fire at goal. His right-footed shot just evades Mendy's left-hand post. The Chelsea goalkeeper was scrambling there. 21:14 Porto have the ball in the net... 55 mins: Huge scare for Chelsea once again as Porto put the ball in the net only for it to be disallowed in the build-up.  After a goal-mouth scramble, Pepe pokes home into the Chelsea net from a corner but Mbemba is adjudged to have been offside in the build-up. 21:09 Marega with a huge chance to equalise for Porto 52 mins: Huge save from Mendy to deny Marega from equalising for Porto. The Porto striker runs through on goal as Chelsea's defence decide to play a high line and he has only Mendy to beat. But Mendy does brilliantly to get down low to deny Marega. The Porto man should have done better there though. Could he have taken it earlier? 21:04 Chelsea almost get off to the perfect start in the second half 47 mins: Werner just can't quite find the net at the moment can he? Chelsea have a great chance to go 2-0 ahead but the German fails to take advantage. Mount floats in a delightful ball into the penalty area to an unmarked Werner but the striker times his leap all wrong and his header sails over the crossbar. 21:02 SECOND HALF UNDERWAY! And we are back underway in Seville! Can Chelsea extend their advantage or will Porto find a route back into this game? 20:47 HALF-TIME: PORTO 0-1 CHELSEA And the half-time whistle blows in Seville. It is Chelsea with the early advantage thanks to Mason Mount's superbly-taken finish in the 32nd minute. But Porto have certainly shown they are a threat tonight, and will be desperate to hit back quickly in the second half. 20:45 Pepe almost with a quick reply for Porto 42 mins: Porto are looking for an instant route back into this game, and Pepe nearly delivers for the Portuguese outfit. The veteran centre back heads towards goal from a Porto corner but Mendy fairly routinely parries away past the post from a comfortable height. 20:42 Mount with the crucial away goal for Chelsea 20:40 GOAL ALERT: BAYERN MUNICH 1-2 PSG (CHOUPO-MOTING) Bayern grab a goal back through former PSG striker Choupo-Moting, who played in last season's Champions League final in Lisbon for the French giants. It has been a very entertaining first half in Munich... 20:36 GOAL ALERT: BAYERN MUNICH 0-2 PSG (MARQUINHOS) Things are going from bad to worse for Champions League holders Bayern as Marquinhos puts PSG 2-0 ahead in the 28th minute in Munich. 20:33 GOAL: PORTO 0-1 CHELSEA (MOUNT) 32 mins: Just moments after saying Jorginho was struggling to influence the game, he makes the difference. He receives the ball in plenty of space and plays in a perfectly-weighted pass into the path of Mount, who superbly turns his defender and strikes towards goal. And it is a clinical finish from Mount, who strikes past Porto goalkeeper Marchesin low to his right. Chelsea with the early advantage in this Champions League quarter-final tie! 20:30 Strong defending from Chilwell to clear the Porto danger 28 mins: Great recovery there from Chilwell. Otavio drifts into the box on the right-hand side but he couldn't quite get the ball out of his feet. And the England left back manages to get on the right side and clear away for a throw-in. Porto have certainly been the better side over the last 10 minutes. Chelsea's two central midfielders Jorginho and Kovacic have struggled to get on the ball so far tonight... 20:25 Porto ramp up the pressure 23 mins: Jorginho clumsily gives free-kick in a dangerous position following a foul on Diaz. Otavio swings the set-piece in and Chelsea head away for a corner. The Blues then manage to clear the subsequent corner but Porto are starting to ramp up some pressure here. Two more corners immediately follow and from the final one, Porto nearly go ahead.  Monteiro swings the corner in and it looks to be heading towards goal. Mendy has to hurry back onto his line and punch clear... 20:21 James finding space down the right again 20 mins: The switch of play appears to be on for Chelsea down the right, with James finding himself unmarked on numerous occasions. James was in again down the right but Christensen decided to play safe. Porto will need to be wary of that threat from the flank. 20:18 James nearly with the opening 16 mins: Mount races in down the left after a long ball forward. The England star recognises James marauding forward unmarked down the right. Mount then whips a cross into the box towards James at the back post but Porto goalkeeper Marchesin does well to snuff out the danger. 20:15 Early action shots from Seville 20:13 Uribe nearly puts Porto ahead with a worldie! 12 mins: Porto go very close to opening the scoring, and what a goal this would have been. Uribe controls the ball on the edge of Chelsea's penalty area before hitting a volley at goal, which just sails onto the top of Mendy's net. Some early warning signs now for Chelsea. 20:12 Mendy with the easy task... 11 mins: Corona dribbles with the ball down the left-hand side of the pitch but is soon crowded out. The winger, who has been targeted by Chelsea, then decides to chip the ball into the penalty area but Mendy is on hand to calmly collect. 20:11 GOAL ALERT: BAYERN MUNICH 0-1 PSG (MBAPPE) Mbappe has put PSG ahead against Bayern Munich in the third minute at the Allianz Stadium in tonight's other Champions League clash. The perfect start for the Ligue 1 giants who were defeated by Bayern in last season's final. 20:09 Now it's Porto's turn to waste a free-kick... 8 mins: Porto win a free-kick in a dangerous position after a foul from Kovacic. And just like Chelsea's corner just moments ago, it's an absolute waste as they play it short before going all the way back to the goalkeeper... 20:08 A waste of a corner from Chelsea 6 mins: Mount wins a corner down the right after Sanusi knocks the ball out of play after putting pressure on the Chelsea star. But the resulting corner comes to nothing as Chelsea play short. Tuchel will be disappointed with that. 20:04 Chelsea with the first opening 3 mins: Havertz gets into a good position down the left. He drifts into the penalty area and tries to pick out a team-mate across goal but no one is on hand to poke home. Early warning sign there for Porto. 20:03 2 mins Chelsea with the early possession at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium but Porto are pressing them very high up. Tuchel's side will need to find a way to beat the Portuguese outfit's press tonight... 20:01 And we're underway! Chelsea get us underway in Seville against a Porto side who love being the underdogs... 19:57 The teams are out... Both Porto and Chelsea are out the tunnel, and the Champions League anthem is coming up! Looking forward to this match, should be an entertaining match-up in Seville... 19:50 Just 10 minutes to go... who are you backing? Not long to go now until kick-off in the first leg of this Champions League quarter-final tie! Can Chelsea seize control of this tie or do Porto have other ideas? The latest odds from Betfair are:  Porto to win 9/2 Chelsea to win 3/4 Draw 5/2 Porto to qualify 5/2 Chelsea to qualify 2/7 19:40 A closer look at the Portuguese underdogs trying to shock Chelsea They are the 35-1 outsiders that are generally viewed as Group Stage fodder, perhaps regarded by the likes of Andrea Agnelli as too small to even entertain the notion of reaching a Champions League quarter final. But Porto are alive and kicking and ready to serve up another shock on European football's big stage.  Sergio Conceicao's side entertain Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea in Sevilla, but can the fiery Portuguese coach keep his cool and help the Liga NOS side reach their first semi final since 2003-04? In the article below, Sportsmail provides the lowdown on this season's underdogs... Porto lowdown ahead of Champions League clash with Chelsea They are the outsiders generally viewed as Group Stage fodder, perhaps regarded by the likes of Andrea Agnelli as too small to even entertain the notion of reaching a quarter final. Mail Online 19:29 Tuchel and Kovacic have their say ahead of kick-off... Tuchel on bouncing back from the West Brom horror show: 'You can learn a lot from defeats, it brings you down to earth and makes you reflect on everything.'   On Rudiger's bust-up with Kepa: 'There was too much emotion on Sunday and it got heated up, we overstepped the line, and we don't accept this. There are certain rules this group shows, sometimes it is necessary to play at the edge but not to overstep. The good thing was the reaction, they did not let it become bigger.'   Kovacic on coming up against former Real Madrid team-mate Pepe: 'He is one of the best centre backs in the world, he is doing perfectly, he is amazing. It will be nice to see him again.' 19:18 Chelsea's bad habits returned during West Brom humiliation Saturday's match against West Brom was supposed to be a routine one for Chelsea. They were unbeaten in 14 and had conceded just twice in that period. A match against Sam Allardyce's 19th-placed side wasn't supposed to create too much difficulty. And they were 1-0 up after 27 minutes when Christian Pulisic scored his first goal under Tuchel. But it all went wrong two minutes later when Thiago Silva was sent off for a second bookable offence.  Given their recent form and their defensive record, you'd still expect 10 men to handle a West Brom side who had won just three games all season. But the 5-2 hammering brought back old habits reminiscent of Frank Lampard's side that won just eight of the first 19 games of the season. And it's happened at the most crucial part of their campaign.  READ THE FULL ARTICLE BELOW Chelsea have a lot to fix as the race for the top four heats up Chelsea's 5-2 defeat to West Brom saw Thomas Tuchel's start come to an embarrasing end, and it's left the side with plenty of questions to answer ahead of a crucial period across all competitions Mail Online 19:08 Chelsea TEAM NEWS Chelsea starting XI: Mendy, James, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Chilwell, Jorginho, Kovacic, Mount, Werner, Havertz It appears a front three of Mount, Werner and Havertz - with Pulisic on the bench.  Chelsea team news is in! ????#PORCHE pic.twitter.com/lIdSQjCSSv— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) April 7, 2021 18:58 Porto TEAM NEWS Can Chelsea's attack get the better of veteran centre back Pepe tonight?
