Porto vs Juventus Match Preview and Team News
Porto is unbeaten in seven matches but winless in the last four. While they have just one loss in their previous 25 games, a lack of confidence lately shows a defeat is only on the way. The team has really struggled recently. They had to stage a second-half comeback to draw 2-2 at home with Boavista in their last game. In the earlier two games, they conceded in the final minute, denying them wins, and had three players sent off in the process. A positive for Porto ahead of this game, though, is that they have failed to score in just two of their last 25 matches. They will also be defending a 14-match unbeaten run at home and have scored two or more in four of their last five home matches. Sergio Oliveira has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Juventus’ struggles in the season continued with a 1-0 away loss at Napoli over the weekend. As a result, they dropped to fourth in the Serie A standings and will be hoping for better times in Portugal. For the first time this season, and in a very long time, Juventus have gone without a goal in two straight matches. This is not to mean their attacking threat is no longer there; they only failed to score against strong Napoli and Internazionale sides. Porto is another good side they set out to face, and having netted two or more in seven of their last ten matches, and the Italians will be confident of stopping the goalless run. The Italian giants have two losses in their previous five away matches, but against Porto, they have three straight wins. Federico Bernardeschi is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the left side. He has speed, and he is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Cristiano Ronaldo is a football machine, and it is a real pleasure to watch this man.
