Juventus hosts FC Porto in the second leg of the Champions League 1/8 finals. The match will be played on Tuesday, March 9th at Allianz Stadium (Turin)
Juventus won the Super Cup of Italy. In order to take the first trophy as a coach, Andrea Pirlo had to beat his bosom friend Gennaro Gattuso and his Napoli. Beyond that, the Turin grandee has a chance to get the Coppa Italia – the team reached the final, knocking out Inter in the semifinals. But who will seriously rejoice at these trophies, realizing that the Scudetto, which has already become familiar, is slipping through fingers? But the Zebras are unlikely to catch up with the Nerazzurri, driven by Antonio Conte to the trophy - there is simply no time. There is only one hope left: to rock in the Champions League. Pirlo won it, but as a player. However, Ronaldo and the company need to overcome at least the 1/8 finals.

Porto already has a minimum chance of winning another champion’s title. Sporting Lisbon is extremely good in the current season, and it is confidently going to the long-awaited gold. It will be almost impossible to win back such a big margin. So, Sergio Conceicao’s men will have to fight for second place and try not to fall below the leading three. Braga is also not so far, and the whole struggle is ahead. But the Champions League became an outlet. At first, the team from Portugal became the only representative of lower football tiers that made it to the knockout rounds. And then the Dragons managed to gain a home victory over Juventus. Yes, Bentancur helped them a lot, as Taremi scored an early goal after his mistake. At the beginning of the 2nd half, Marega doubled the lead of Porto, putting the Italian champion on the brink of disaster. And only Chiesa's goal scored in the 82nd minute gave Juventus a real chance of success in this two-legged confrontation.
Before that 1-2 defeat, Juventus had never lost to Porto and won three out of four matches. Now the Italians need to win again in order to go further. Porto will surely sit back on heels and try to keep a 0-0 score. And Juventus will do it if it opens the scoring. We recommend betting on Under 3.0 goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 goals scored
