The first leg of the tie will take place on 7 April at Sevilla’s Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán.
The Blues have fond memories of the Andalusian stadium, having thrashed the Spaniards 4-0 in this season’s group stage, with Olivier Giroud grabbing a hat-trick.
A statement from the governing body read: “Uefa is able to officially confirm that the Uefa Champions League quarter-final first and second leg matches involving FC Porto and Chelsea FC, will now both be played at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán in Seville. The dates of the matches (7 April and 13 April 2021) and the kick-off times (21:00CET) will remain the same.
“Uefa would like to thank FC Porto and Chelsea FC for their support and close cooperation, as well as the Portuguese Football Federation, The Football Association, the Royal Spanish Football Federation and Sevilla FC for their assistance and agreeing to stage the matches.”
The Blues have a superior head-to-head record over the Dragons, winning five of their eight meetings.
The last meeting between the sides was in 2015, with Chelsea running out 2-0 winners at Stamford Bridge, thanks to an Ivan Marcano own-goal and Willian strike.
