FC Porto vs. Juventus: Match Preview

"The Dragons" had a decent group campaign competing with the England actual champions Leicester, champions from Hungary, FC Copenhagen, and Belgian title holders Club Brugge. For all their six games, Nuno Espírito Santo's team suffered one minimal beating by Leicester, whereas won 3 victories and drew twice at Copenhagen. They had showed quite good results throughout the group G action, averaging precisely 3 goals sent for more than received against.

"The Zebras" were claimed to have been clear favourites of their potential four before as they were drawn into Group H - and all the expectations were met - Juventus took a total dominance over the other sides, winning its group never losing an encounter, also conceded only two goals within their overall six Champions league outings this season. In addition, "The Old Lady" team has been the winner on their last six occasions in Serie A, which surely hits at how solid they stand now whether in Europe, or in the domestic league.

In our perspective, this duo is not entirely determined with the exact qualifier, but some advantages, such as proficiency, class, will surely favour the Italian champions. Notwithstanding the above mentioned, in matches on Portuguese ground the hosts play more luckily, since home games are a strong hand of Porto team. Moreover, the visiting Italians could happen to stumble in an uncomfortable atmosphere for themselves. Thus "The Dragons" will try and dig through the weakened defensive line the opposite side has, and as a result, cling onto a positive outcome.

On the whole, situation is supposed to be similar to the one which was in 2001. In the first match the Portuguese side will impose a decent fight, but then it'll come Juve's turn to take advantage of its venue, as they act very effectively there as well, and by pressing down Porto, they are necessarily to qualify for the quarterfinals.
