Europe – Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 9 March 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz, Turin
Juventus come into this tie at the back of a surprising 2-1 defeat when they visited Porto last month. However, they have since picked up form since then and will look to overturn the deficit this term as they take on an in-form Porto in Turin. The home side has won three and drawn one of their four games since that defeat, with ten goals to their credit while conceding just twice. Their last three home games have all posted wins giving them quite an impressive record at the Allianz Stadium.
Juventus remain unbeaten at home since before Christmas, and have won nine of their ten games since with impressive defensive run. They have conceded just one goal in their last seven home matches, netting an impressive 17 goals at the other end.
Porto have not been that fantastic in the domestic league but they have thus far made a statement in Europe. Their win against the Turin giants came as a surprise to many the last time out, but now they will face the hard task of making their advantage count with an away goal dampening the victory they recorded the last time out.
The visitors have only kept two clean sheets in their last eight competitive games which will be a source of concern coming against a well-motivated Juventus side.
Considering Juventus have a 100% home win record against the visitors with the fact that the host have scored at least two goals in nine of their last ten home games, it will not be surprising to see this games record more than one goal.
- Juventus’s form in last 5 matches: WDWLL.
- Porto’s form in last 5 matches: LDWWD.
PREDICTION: Home/Draw and Over 1.5
