Porto vs Juventus Predictions


Juventus should be far too strong for Porto in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League tie. Ronaldo has scored 4 goals in his last 3 European matches, which I'm tipping to continue in Portugal.

  • Porto have drawn their last 4 matches (all competitions).
  • Porto have lost 3 of their last 4 knockout matches (UEFA Champions League).
  • Porto have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 matches against Juventus (UEFA Champions League).
  • Juventus have won 4 of their last 5 matches against Porto (all competitions).
  • Juventus have won 6 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • Juventus have kept 6 clean sheets in their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • Juventus have won 11 of their last 13 matches (UEFA Champions League).
  • Juventus’ Ronaldo has scored 4 goals in his last 3 matches (UEFA Champions League).

Head to Head


Juventus hold a 4-0 advantage over Porto with 1 draw in 5 meetings.

The sides last met in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League Round of 16, with Juventus running out 2-0 winners in Portugal and 1-0 in Italy.

Porto Form


Porto have drawn their last 4 fixtures in all competitions. The Dragons played out a drab 0-0 draw at Belenenses and 2-2 at Sporting Braga. Those results saw Porto fall away in the title race.

The Dragons played two matches in Braga, the second in the Portuguese Cup semi-final first leg. Once again they surrendered a lead after having a player dismissed, conceding an equaliser after the 90th minute for the second straight game.

Sérgio Conceição’s charges fell 2-0 behind at home against relegation-battling Boavista on Saturday. Goals from Mehdi Taremi and Sérgio Oliveira made it 2-2.

Porto Injuries & Team News


Centre back Iván Marcano remains out with a cruciate ligament rupture.

Left back Zaidu Sanusi and right back Nanu are injured. 

Midfielder Otavio could return to the starting side after coming off the bench at half time against Boavista.

Juventus Form


Juventus have picked up six victories in their last eight games, with six clean sheets along the way.

The Old Lady claimed a 2-0 win at home against Roma in Serie A before securing a Coppa Italia final spot. Juve fought hard against Inter Milan in the second leg, earning a 0-0 draw at home after a 2-1 victory in Milan in the first leg.

Andrea Pirlo’s team fell to a disappointing 1-0 loss at Napoli over the weekend. Juve had 62% possession, 24-8 shots, and 2.01-1.06 expected goals, but just couldn't find a way to find the back of the net.

Juventus Injuries & Team News


Juventus midfielders Arthur is injured and Argentine attacker Paulo Dybala is still out with a medial collateral ligament injury.

Verdict

Juventus’ last four defeats have been rectified by a victory and I am tipping that trend to continue in Portugal. I'm also backing Cristiano Ronaldo to score after finding the net 4 times in his last 3 UEFA Champions League outings.
