Chelsea vs Porto by Rahul
This is an important fixture for both teams, as the draw is the favoured result for both teams to qualify, while neither team can afford to lose it, if Dynamo wins their game. Chelsea are currently going through very turbulent times, and anything less than victory will definitely cause a lot of discomfort to Mourinho after all that is said this season regarding him. In the last few games, the team have picked up a minimum of 2 yellows in each of their last 4 games. This has been in games where the pressure is not as great as Chelsea not qualifying to the Champions League. There are certain viable characters to yellows in this team including Ivanovic, Terry, Fabregas, Matic and Costa; who could land up with cards given at anytime for any mis-timed tackles.
Porto also tend to grab around 2 yellow cards per game, and it will be interesting to see how much help will be given to home teams as Cakir conveniently does on occasions, which could be the down side for Porto. Porto know its a draw or win game, if they fall behind, you could see some expansive play, which could result in a few Chelsea counter-attack and Porto needing to foul on occasions to stop play and pick up some silly bookings.
The previous meeting between the 2 sides was a heated one with 7 yellow cards being picked up in a 2-1 Porto victory. One can expect a similar type of game, and with Cakir in charge I expect similar cards being thrown around tonight.
