UEFA reacts after Chelsea set UCL record to become the 1st EPL side to achieve the feat in history

Thomas Tuchel led Chelsea team were in action on Tuesday night at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan against Portuguese Primeria Liga giant, FC Porto in the second leg of the UEFA champions league quarter finals ties.

The host of the night suffered a late defeat in the game but were through to the semi-finals of the competition for their first time ever since 2014.

The game between the two sides was so intensed that there was nothing to separate them at half time which ended goalless, and as such no shot on target from either of the sides until the 65th minutes of the second half.

Chelsea in the game of the night suffered their first defeat in the competition this season and their first under the German tactician since taking over at the club, having won all his previous three.

Chelsea with their semi-finals qualification on a 2-1 aggregate means the Blues have now reached the UEFA champions league semi-finals for the eighth time, more than any other other English side in the competition’s history.

Most semi-final appearances by English teams in the Champions League era:

◉ Chelsea (8)

◎ Man Utd (7)

◎ Liverpool (5)

◎ Arsenal (2)

◎ Man City (1)

◎ Spurs (1)

◎ Leeds (1)

Blue is the colour.

With this brilliant record for the Blues, European football governing body known as UEFA has now reacted with a post via their verified twitter handle.

UEFA posted to commend the London club for reaching the semi-finals for the eighth times, the most of any English side in the history of the competition, as they showed a “muscle emoji” to laud the Thomas Tuchel’s side for the great job well done.
Chelsea having booked a spot in the semi-finals alongside French Ligue 1 champion, Paris Saint Germain, will be looking forward to who to play next between Real Madrid and Liverpool in the semi-finals.
