Juventus Vs FC Porto : UEFA Champions League Match Preview And Predictions

Juventus Vs FC Porto UEFA Champions League 

Juventus will host the Portuguese side FC Porto  on the 14th of March for the second leg of the Champions League Knock Out stage having won the Portuguese side 2 Nil back in Portugal they stand favorites to qualify for the next round.

Having Mario Mandzukic (illness) and winger Juan Cuadrado (suspension) back for the clash while  Centre-back Giorgio Chiellini and midfielder Claudio Marchisio are both doubtful, the Italian side will be hoping to keep their Unbeaten record at home of 46 games since August 2015.

Porto will be hoping to set a record of overturning a two goal deficit from a first leg home defeat. Alex Telles will be missing for the Portuguese side as he was sent off in the first leg.

Having won only one of their last nine second leg fixtures away from home, it seems impossible as only two teams have been able to overturn a one goal deficit in their second leg away from home - Ajax against Panathinaikos in the 1995-96 semi-finals and Inter Milan against Bayern Munich in the last 16 in 2010-11.

Progressing just ones in their last seven attempts to progress into the quarter final, it will be more of a psychological success for the Portuguese side.


"I'm aware of the importance the Champions League has for the Bianconeri family and for the history of the club," Brazil right-back Alves said.
"I too, like all Juventus fans, want to dream and I'm convinced that if we continue down our path calmly, with personality, and without fear of making a mistake then we can get right to the end."
