  • Porto will go head to head vs Juventus for the Wednesday night's 1 st leg Champions League R-16 clash between both sides at Estadio do Dragao
  • The home side are coming into this clash on a seven game unbeaten streak in all competitions, though they have drawn the last four
  • Andrea Pirlo's side, meanwhile, were dealt a shock 1-0 defeat by Napoli that left their hopes of retaining the Serie A title hanging by a thread

Porto will be aiming to put together a Champions League upset when they host Juventus in the sides' first leg Champions League R-16 clash at Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday.

Sergio Conceicao's men haven't tasted defeat in their last seven games in all competitions, though they haven't tasted victory either in the last four matches. They'd therefore be looking to get back to winning ways when they host the Old Lady on Wednesday.

Doing that is looking possible mainly because the Old Lady aren't in best form ahead of their trip to Portugal. Andrea Pirlo's side were dealt a shock 1-0 defeat by Napoli at the weekend and are suddenly looking vulnerable ahead of probably their most important game of the campaign.

 

Porto Vs Juventus preview: Team News and starting lineups

The home side will be without the trio of Nanu, Zaidu Sansi and Otavio on Wednesdaay night. The former two have been on the injury table for quite some time, whereas Otavio has only recently joined them after sustaining a muscle injury during his side's 2-2 draw with Boavista at the weekend.

Andrea Pirlo won't be able to call on the ever-reliable Juan Cuadrado against Porto. The winger turned full-back sustained a muscle injury at Napoli on Saturday and was taken off during the half-time break. His absence will allow Alex Sandro to start on the left of a back four.

Paulo Dybala, Arthur and Aaron Ramsey won't all be a part of the Juventus traveling contingent to Portugal, though the Old Lady will be bolstered by the return of Leonardo Bonuccia who has recovered full fitness after missing out his side's last two games against Inter and Napoli.

Possible Postage starting lineup vs Juventus : Marchesin; Manafa, Mbemba, Pepe, Sarr; Corona, Oliviera, Uribe; Diaz, Marega, Taremi

Possible Juventus starting lineup vs Porto : Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, De Ligt, Alex Sandro; Chiesa, Bentancur, Rabiot, McKennie; Ronaldo, Morata
