Porto will do battle on Tuesday as time edges closer to the looming Champions League meeting versus Juventus.
Our Juventus v Porto predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (plus the best game odds).
Juventus will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 3-0 Serie A success against Spezia.
In that game, Juventus had 47% possession and 18 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. For Juventus, the goalscorers were Álvaro Morata (62'), Federico Chiesa (71') and Cristiano Ronaldo (89'). On the other side, Spezia got 12 shots on goal with 1 of them on target.
Their latest results shine a light on the fact that quality has been evident in the Juventus rearguard. Juve have been miserly, seeing the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past six clashes standing at 4. While that may be of interest, time will tell whether the trend might be sustained in this upcoming game.
Previously, Porto drew 0-0 in the Primeira Liga tie with Sporting Lisbon.
In that match, Porto had 55% possession and 14 shots on goal with 3 on target. Sporting CP had 4 shots at goal with 0 on target.
