The Chelsea forward is ready for their clash against Porto on Tuesday
Eden Hazard has issued a Chelsea rallying cry ahead of their clash against Porto on Tuesday night.
The Blues have made a more promising start to their Champions League campaign than the Premier League season after a 4-0 victory over Maccabi Tel-Aviv in their first game.
Chelsea suffered another setback in the top-flight on Saturday afternoon after Jose Mourinho’s side were only able to secure a 2-2 draw with Newcastle United at St James’s Park.
So no surprise the Belgium international is looking forward to focusing on the Champions League with the chance to secure back-to-back European wins on Tuesday night.
Hazard wrote on the photo-sharing app: “Big game tomorrow⚽️⚽️”
Chelsea have had the upper hand with four victories in the previous six encounters, Porto winning only one. The Londoners have won each of the last three – all by a single goal.
They last faced each other in the 2009/10 Champions League group stage when Chelsea came out on top 1-0 through Nicolas Anelka’s second-half goal.
