Juventus vs FC Porto Prediction & Tips
Called to overturn the 2-1 straight away at the Estadio do Dragao in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Porto, Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus will be able to count on their home environment to try to do the feat against the team coached by Sergio Conceiçao. Also last summer – when the Champions League resumed after the stop due to COvid-19 – it seemed that Juventus could be able to “overturn” it against Lyon and instead they did not succeed, and we hope this was a warning for Ronaldo and his teammates. Juve are back from the comforting 3-1 championship against Lazio and will have no other result apart from victory (1-0 or with two goals to qualify, 2-1 to go to extra time). Important absence of Danilo disqualified while Bentancur is in Covid quarantine. Chiellini is injured and Dybala shouldn’t be in the match either. Porto won their last league game, on the Gil Vicente field 0-2, and arrive in Turin without the injured Mbaye and Mbemba Mangulu.
Porto lost in the 2 away games to Turin with Juventus: 3-1 in 2011 and 1-0 in 2017, results that would give the Bianconeri the qualification today.
Juventus have won 6 of the last 7 games played in Turin in all competitions.
In 6 of the last 7 matches played in Turin between all competitions, Juventus have never conceded a goal.
Porto are unbeaten in 7 away games in all competitions with 4 wins and 3 draws.
We do not expose ourselves that much and we choose the victory of Juventus, regardless of who will qualify for the quarterfinals. Juventus has recently shown worrying ups and downs and even the most recent past (Lyon in 2020) makes us lean towards a solution with the least possible risks.
