Reigning Portuguese champions FC Porto face the now fifth placed Premier League club Chelsea on neutral ground in Seville, Spain due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Porto's turnover dropped massively last season from €169.7 million to €86.8 million due to not participating in the Champions League – while Chelsea's stood at €464.5 million.

Meanwhile, Chelsea recorded a pre-tax profit of €40.6 million as Porto's deficit reached a whopping €115.6 million.
