Team Analysis

FC Porto

Consecutive winning streaks continue for Porto as they managed to create their name in all competitions. The team bumped off Benfica as they own the top spot on Portuguese Primeira Liga.

It is indeed a good season so far as the host gets to settle on second during their group standings on UEFA Champions League knocking out Copenhagen and Club Brugge. It is surprising how Nuno Espirito Santo’s men outshined Leicester on their last group stage game wherein they run away with 5-0 clean sheet outcome.

They might be the underdog on this match, but as the saying goes never underestimate the minnow as they can also put-up an intense fight.

Juventus

A seven consecutive wins is what Juventus currently hold in all the competitions that they are into, which they want to extend as they make their way on the round of 16 in the European Cup. It has been a real struggle to stop the good form of the Juves.

Massimiliano Allegri will count on the giant players that he has in his team. Their rivals should watch out for Gonzalo Higuain as he remains to be unstoppable on having an eye on the net. His tandem with Paulo Dybala is currently at its peak.

Prediction

It’s been more than ten years when FC Porto and Juventus met on UEFA Champions League. The preparation has been long enough and the probability of a draw result might take place on this game.

Juventus 2.19

Score: 1-1
