Juventus v Porto predictions and betting tips for the Champions League last 16 second leg this week including the best odds for each bet and reasons for our tips.
Juventus are aiming to boost their hopes of winning the Champions League this week, as they look to move in to the quarter finals. Juventus haven’t lost at home since 2015, so the visitors have a huge task on their hands in this second leg.
Juventus come in to this game knowing that their work is basically done. After winning 2-0 in the Dragao, they just need to keep a clean sheet here and they are through. Max Allegri’s men have conceded in just two of their Champions League ties this season, so it seems like Porto are on their way out. Juve would also be content with avoiding defeat, so they could aim to keep this game quiet. They’re facing a Porto side which drew a blank at Leicester, and dug out a 0-0 draw at Copenhagen earlier in the season. Under 2.5 goals seems likely at 8/11 with Coral, but we’re backing against both teams to score, which is priced at 20/23 with Bet Victor for our first Juventus vs Porto prediction.
We do think Juventus will win on the night as well as on aggregate. They showed their ability to kill games in the first leg, scoring twice in quick succession to claim an advantage. There’s quite a gulf between these sides, and we think that will be represented in the scoreline. When you take Juve’s fantastic defensive record so far in to account, they should have enough to shut out Porto. On top of that, they have lethal forwards who can kill this contest if given the chance. That has us backing a home win to nil for our second Juventus vs Porto betting tip, which is 8/5 with Betfred.
Porto are without Alex Telles, who was sent off in the first leg. That red card hurt the Portuguese side’s chances, and they’ll miss him in Turin. Stefano Sturaro is the only confirmed absentee for Juve, who should be at close to full strength.
Their meetings in 2001 saw Juventus draw away from home before winning the second meeting 3-1. They’ve already gone one better this time around, and they’ll be aiming to make it three wins from four against Porto.
Juventus are 7/10 with Betfair to win here, and we think they should cruise through this second leg. We’re backing another comfortable victory for them, putting the tie beyond doubt. They’ve won by a 2-0 scoreline on six occasions since switching to a 4-2-3-1 formation in January. We’re backing a repeat of that, which is priced at 13/2 with Sky Bet.
