Juventus vs Porto, UEFA Champions League, 09.03.2021
The Champions of Italy and Portugal resume hostilities from where they left it off in the first leg when they trade tackles at Juventus Stadium in Turin for a place in the quarter-final of this season’s UEFA Champions League. The tie is finely poised, with Porto taking a 2-1 lead over Juventus to the Allianz Arena. Both sides are at the risk of losing the Champion status of their respective countries. But the Champions League provides a chance for them to earn silverware this season. We have settled for a couple of betting markets, and you can find out our betting tips for this game between two former European Champions.
Juventus booked their place in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 by finishing top of Group G ahead of Spanish giants, Barcelona. They had a stellar campaign during the round-robin stage and they will be looking to seal their place in the next round of the competition. But first, they have to overturn a 2-1 deficit from the first leg.
On the home front, Juventus have not really been able to replicate their form from last season, consequently lagging behind the powerhouses from Milan. Both Inter Milan and AC Milan have left the Bianconeri in their wake this season. But their European adventure gives them an opportunity to add to their collection of silverware.
However, if Andrea Pirlo’s men are to book their place in the next round, they have to do it the hard way. The Italians have a long list of players out of this game due to injuries.
Rodrigo Bentacur, Danilo and Paulo Dybala will all sit out this game, but they can count on the talismanic Portuguese forward, Cristiano Ronaldo and in-form striker, Alvaro Morata, to lead them past their Portuguese opponents.
Porto may have the lead going into the second leg, but they have a herculean task of registering their first away win of the knockout stage since they won the competition in 2004. Nevertheless, they will be counting on their form on their European form; which has seen them go on a six-game unbeaten streak.
Additionally, they have not lost in 16 games in the league, with their latest outing ending in a 2-0 away win at struggling Gil Vicente last weekend.
Regarding injuries, Porto will miss the services of Chancel Mbemba and Pepe.
