Joao Felix, a Portuguese footballer, is currently on loan to Chelsea from Atletico Madrid and the Portuguese national team. This season has been difficult for him on the football field, both for his club and for his country.
Although, Joao Felix, 23-year-old should be given much praise for his five goals and three assists in 22 matches for both club and country this season. Felix has averaged 1.9 shots and 0.7 important passes per 90 minutes in La Liga this season, sometimes leading the line. His 77.3% pass success rate in La Liga demonstrates his ability to distribute the ball in the final third.
Recently, in a 2-1 loss to Fulham in a local rivalry, Felix earned his Chelsea debut. He was a formidable opponent on the field when he was at his best. The Portuguese sensation was sent off in the 58th minute for displaying inexperience and failing to lead his team.
According to The Sun, Felix will play for Chelsea against Borussia Dortmund over two legs in the current UEFA Champions League round of 16.
In the absence of unforeseen circumstances, the Portuguese star will play for Chelsea in those two games.

In the Champions League this year, Felix has not yet scored a goal. However, when he’s on, he’s a real threat in the final third. Despite Felix’s rocky start at Stamford Bridge, Graham Potter has some optimism.
