With a five game winning streak in their local league, FC Porto will be turning their attention into the Champions League when they host Juventus in the round of 16 of the Champions League.
Porto Looking To Continue Their Good Form
The hosts have been in a really strong form in recent weeks. The team have won all of their last five league games and will be looking to carry on that form into the European stage. Porto have collected a total of 15 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Portuguese Primeira Liga. Their last league match was against Tondela at home where they won 4-0.
Porto are currently sitting in the 2nd place in the league table. They have 53 points from 16 wins, 5 draws and 1 losses. The team scored 45 goals and conceded 11 since the start of the season.
Nuno has no serious concerns ahead of the reception of Juventus on Wednesday, although André Silva and Felipe are a booking away from a ban.
Juventus To Finish The Job Away From Home
The visitors are also in a really strong form in their local league. The team have won all of their last five league games and are looking to keep the title for the fifth season on a row. Juventus have collected a total of 15 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Palermo at home where they won 4-1.
Juventus are currently sitting in the 1st place in the league table. They have 63 points from 21 wins, 0 draws and 4 losses. They have scored 53 goals and conceded 17 since the start of the season.
