About a year after losing the Champions League Final to Paris Saint-Germain against Bayern Munich in Lisbon, Thiago Silva managed to win against Chelsea in Estádio do Dragão. In the end, the Brazilian player remembered difficult times in his career, when he was hospitalized in Porto for six months due to tuberculosis.
