UCL Match Preview : FC Porto vs Juventus

 Porto have never beaten Juventus in three previous attempts and the objective will surely be to stay in the tie for the reverse leg back in Italy. However, they are unbeaten in their last seven home encounters with Italian opposition.
Juventus have lost four of their 11 previous encounters with Portuguese sides, but all of those defeats came against Benfica. Max Allegri’s side have won each of their last seven matches and are favourites to progress to the next stage of the competition.
