Thomas Tuchel must choose the five Chelsea players if the final Champions League is to be fined by penalties

Chelsea's two previous Champion League Finals are finalized, and the case again in Porto when the Blues face Man City is no longer unthinkable It is a scenario that very few supporters of Chelsea will like to contemplate: a penalty shootage in Porto tomorrow evening to win the Champions League. In the previous two finals, the Blues went through the anguish of spot kicks. In rain-swept Moscow, in 2008, Chelsea's width denied the trophy that Premier League competitors Manchester United lifted later that night. Four years later, in Munich, the punishment again decided the fate of the trophy after Robbie Di Matteo had managed to keep Bavaria in 1-1 draws on their own patch. Petr Cech stepped up to deny that the winner had been Ivica Olic and Bastian Schweinsteiger and Didier Drogba. Chelsea fans hope this time that they can defeat the city of Manchester in about 90 minutes. Chelsea fans hope that their side can. It is a reason for encouragement to do so twice over the last 6 weeks, even if champions of Premier League are favorites. If the two teams cannot be separated after an extra time in port, however, the lotery of a penalty shooting will again decide on the Chelsea dream of lifting the European Cup. In the last two years the record of the city at the scene has been greatly opposed to them. Since the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign, Guardiola's side has been awarded 27 sanctions in all competitions and they missed ten. It's only 62 percent success rate. In contrast, 29 opportunities from this and last term were given to Chelsea. Only five were missed, an 83 percent success rate. It's obvious that the Blues have a comfortable 12 yards confident player.

Sir Jorginho

No debate can be held here. In the last two years since the departure of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid, the Italian has been Chelsea's first choice prisoner. Jorginho has taken 22 penalties (including shootings) for the Blues during his three years on Stamford Bridge, but he has missed only 4. Its success rate is 82 percent impressive. He often confused the goalkeeper with his hopping technique, but sometimes took it out of the window and got a more conventional shot. If we have to decide the final tomorrow in 12 yards, Jorginho will almost sure be the first Chelsea player to step up, if he's still at the pitch.

Mount Mason

The graduate of the academy took only one penalty out of the shootouts – that was easily transformed against Southampton in February. That would not be enough for Mount to persuade Thomas Tuchel to make a spot kick in Porto. Fortunately, there is more evidence in England internationally. Since Frank Lampard was included in the Chelsea First team in 2019-20, Mount increased twice in the shootouts for Chelsea and found the back on the web in Liverpool's Super Cup defeat. But the 22-year-old converted to the two shootouts in which he was involved when he loaned in Derby County. His achievement

Havertz's Kai

Due to his performance in the second part of the semifinal win against Real Madrid, the 21-year-old hopes to start the game in Porto. However, Havertz probably will be introduced in the second period from a replacement bench and the game will look out. This makes him a leading candidate for a spot kick. Havertz took seven penalties, all for Bayer Leverkusen, during his senior club career, and won each individual. During the 2016/17 campaign he stepped up for his boyhood club in a DFB-Pokal shootout. Havertz once again found the net.

Azpilicueta Caesar

In tomorrow's finals, the Spaniard will be captain Chelsea and he hopes to raise the prize at the end of that competition. If that happens after a shootout, Azpilicueta will probably have made the long journey and penalized his side. He also has a good record. He has a good record. In the past, the 31-year-old has taken five sanctions in Chelsea shoots and has still to miss. This is an impressive Spaniard's achievement.

Giroud Olivier

The final of Giroud's Champions League is nearly sure to be the last game for Chelsea. The contract of the Frenchman expires at the end of next month and the Blues will not extend this as things stand. The 34-year-old almost surely begins the game on the bench. And only when Chelsea needs a target can he be introduced... or when the match goes to a shootout. For Chelsea, Giroud only took one penalty, which he scored in the campaign of the Champions League against Seville earlier. And he stepped up from 12 yards on 17 occasions during his club career (not including shootouts) and missed only once.
