The star players of Mumbai Indians include captain Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Jaspreet Bumrah, and Trent Bolt.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Porto vs. Chelsea

Mason Mount Led Chelsea To Victory In First Leg Champions League Quarters With Porto

Chelsea won its first leg match in the Champions League quarter-final. The Blues were playing with Porta and they won by a 2-0 score. Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell scored the goals in 32nd and 85th minutes respectively. While Porto had more of the half-chances but their players failed to make any breakthrough.

Here’s is the rating of individual players

Chelsea Ratings

Edouard Mendy (Goalkeeper) 7 Rating: He saved two goals, one from Otavio and the second from Pepe. He was quick to get across to deny Porto any opportunity.

Mason Mount (Forward) 8 Rating: He scored his first Championship League goal with an amazing flick with his left heel before shooting the ball in the right spot. At 22, he’s the man Chelsea can rely upon.

Ben Chilwell (Defender/Midfielder) 7 Rating: He scored the second and the winning goal for Chelsea with a brilliant header that took the ball into a near-empty net.

Porto Ratings

Agustin Marchesin (Goalkeeper) 5 Rating: His ratings were marred by poor positioning at the backline leading to goals. Also, his decision-making was questionable.
