Juventus vs Porto Match Analysis and Prediction

The reigning champions of Italy and Portugal resume their battle for a Champions League quarter-final space this week. Juventus welcome Porto, who are trailing by a goal this Tuesday night at the Allianz Stadium with kickoff at 11 pm.

Juventus find themselves in need of overturning a deficit in the last 16 for the second year in a row. The Binaconeri will have to overlook injury concerns and inconsistency this season to win at Turin.

Porto shocked the Old Lady barely two minutes into their clash with Iranian striker finding the back of the net. Half time whistle saw the Portugal giants secure the second goal courtesy of Moussa Marega.

All was not lost that day as Federico Cheisa’s away goal proved crucial in their comeback bid this Tuesday night. It has been two decades since Ronald left his homeland, but Portugal’s cap and record goal-scorer left frustrated for the night.

Juventus are still searching for consistency this season, especially with rookie coach Andre Pirlo at the helm. However, the side has only conceded six goals in their last 13 games across all competitions.

Porto continued their European unbeaten streak to six in their opening win in the first leg as they continue the club’s 24th Champions League campaign. Sergio Conceiacao’s men sit adrift of old rivals Sporting in the league, with an attempt to reclaim their Premiera Liga title.
