Chelsea vs FC Porto.
The 1st leg between these two sides saw Chelsea brush aside a stoic FC Porto side, 2-0 with brilliantly taken goals from Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell both of whom had never scored in the Champions League competition before. The 2nd leg will be hosted on Tuesday at Seville, Spain.
Despite Chelsea's 2-goal advantage, FC Porto who clearly have 'nothing to lose' will be hoping to disappoint Thomas Tuchel's who aren't easily beatable at the moment.
