Former Manchester City defender, Micah Richards, has tipped Chelsea to reach the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League final.
Richards stated this ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League last-8 clash against FC Porto on April 7.
According to him, Chelsea are ‘dark horses’ in the Champions League this season after being proved wrong by their manager, Thomas Tuchel.
Recall that Chelsea eliminated Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last-16 in March.
“Chelsea are dark horses, you know,” Richards told Super 6 podcast.
“I did a piece a couple of months ago saying it is a disgrace that Frank Lampard is out the door. And then Tuchel comes in, and I was like, “how’s that? No!”
“But actually, look at them now. They have only conceded like two or three goals. They have got Porto next and then Real Madrid or Liverpool. Neither of them are playing that well and then next thing, they are in the [Champions League] final!”
