Possibly the most important match of the season for the Italian champions. Two years back, they reeled in Cristiano Ronaldo with the sole desire to bring in a European trophy to their cabinet, but so far that objective has not been fulfilled.
Not just that, but the Old Lady fell against the likes of Ajax and Lyon in back-to-back campaigns in the UCL. And this time around, they were defeated 2-1 in the first leg against the Dragons.
One more elimination against a minnow in the CL would be a glaring demerit for the nine-time defending Serie A champions. Likely, fans would be hoping for another miracle this Tuesday, like the one Cristiano pulled off against Atleti.
However, it seems a difficult task. Sergio Conceicao’s men are in good form, and they already lead in aggregate. They do have the luxury to concentrate in defense, while Andrea Pirlo’s men will have to give more priority to attack.
As such, Porto will be expected to score at least once.
Still, with the talent and determination the Old Lady possess, it would be a wonder if they do not deliver a superb performance this Tuesday. Do also take note that the game is at their home.
The Old Lady are one of the best teams in the world, and they are lining up at home for their most important game of the season so far.
They are also pitted against a supposed minnow, and do also take into account the fact that the Italians have a superb h2h record over the years.
Moreover, Pirlo’s men had won ten of their former eleven appearances at home, and they also have lost just twice at this stadium this whole season.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in three of their past five road trips.
By the looks of things, expect Juventus to secure a win this Tuesday.
Be that as it may, note that this is a knockout fixture, and importantly, the Old Lady will have to concentrate on offense, as they are trailing in aggregate.
Conceicao’s men have failed to score on the road just once since June of 2020, and expect to find the back of the net at least once this match-day.
