Chelsea FC will play their two quarter-finals against FC Porto on foreign soil. UEFA announced that both the first and second legs between the Blues and the Portuguese would be closed at the Estadio Ramone Sánchez-Pizzuan in Seville. However, it is unclear why the encounters were moved to Spain: Portugal was on the United Kingdom’s Red List for several weeks, but Iberian was killed again in mid-March – the Tuschel detachment would have traveled without Portugal later. I can quarantine.
On Wednesday, 7 April, FC Porto will have the right to a formal home, six days after it FC Chelsea. This can be particularly curious (and annoying) if the away goal rule in the end dropped the balance in favor of one of the two teams – although both doubles are played at the same venue, it would still logically still be come into force. Mad!
The winner of this quarter-final pair will face the winner of Real Madrid vs Liverpool FC. By then the latest, teams should be able to play the semi-finals again in their own stadium!
