Juventus vs Porto Preview

Andrea Pirlo Juventus need to overturn a 1-2 first-leg deficit to avoid a shock elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Porto at the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday night. An insipid show by the Bianconeri away in Portugal gave the visitors to Turin a slight advantage though Juve have something in the form of an away goal by Federico Chiesa to cling on to.

Pirlo's men who are third in the Serie A standings currently and a clear seven points adrift of leaders Inter Milan, have just come out of a morale-boosting 3-1 win over Lazio with Alvaro Morata getting a brace.

On the other hand, their forthcoming opponents from Portugal who are placed second on the domestic Premeira Liga table, go into Tuesday night's clash on the back of a 0-2 away win over relegation candidate Gil Vicente with Mateus Uribe and Sergie Oliveira getting goals in either halves.

Team News

Pirlo chose to rest both Cristiano Ronaldo and Leonardo Bonucci for the match against Lazio while he started with Juan Cuadrado who returned from injury. But the bad news is that center-back Matthijs de Ligt who sustained an injury against Spezia a week ago may miss out on the Turin clash and so could key players like Arthur, Paulo Dybala and Giorgio Chiellini.

For Porto, defender Chancel Mbemba and goalkeepr Mouhamed Mbaye are likely to miss out on the second leg tie as they are still struggling with injuries while center-back Ivan Marcano will go through a fitness assessment before the game.

Line Ups

Juventus possible line-up: Szczesny (goal); Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Alex Sandro; Chiesa, Rabiot, McKennie, Ramsey; Morata, Ronaldo

Porto possible line-up: Marchesin (goal); Manafá, Pepe, Mbemba, Zaidu; Sérgio Oliveira, Uribe, Otávio, Corona; Taremi, Marega

Juventus who looked totally off-colour in the first leg are expected to rise to the occasion on Tuesday night with Ronaldo coming good in big moments such as this. Porto are not in the best of form despite their second spot in the Premeira Liga, having won only two of their last 6 domestic outings and drawn four.

Moreover, the last time the Portuguese club have won away from home in the Champions League knockout stages was the year they won the competition way back in 2002-03. On a head-to-head basis, Juve have beaten Porto on four of the six occasions they have met so far.

So, history, too, is not with Porto. Expect Juve to sneak through to the Round of 8 with a 1-0 win.
