1 min read

Both of Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final legs against Porto will be played in Seville.

The matches on April 7 and April 13 have both been moved to the Spanish city despite Portugal being removed from the UK’s red list for travel.

Thomas Tuchel’s side were initially due to travel to Portugal for the game on April 7 before hosting Porto on April 13.

The first leg of the tie will take place on 7 April at Sevilla’s Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán.

The Blues have fond memories of the Andalusian stadium, having thrashed the Spaniards 4-0 in this season’s group stage, with Olivier Giroud grabbing a hat-trick.

A statement from the governing body read: “Uefa is able to officially confirm that the Uefa Champions League quarter-final first and second leg matches involving FC Porto and Chelsea FC, will now both be played at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán in Seville. The dates of the matches (7 April and 13 April 2021) and the kick-off times (21:00CET) will remain the same.

“Uefa would like to thank FC Porto and Chelsea FC for their support and close cooperation, as well as the Portuguese Football Federation, The Football Association, the Royal Spanish Football Federation and Sevilla FC for their assistance and agreeing to stage the matches.”
