Porto is playing at home in a rematch of the 1/8-finals of the Champions League. Both sides will fight hard if they want to qualify for the next phase of the competition. In Rome, the hosts were the better team and even had two goals lead, but Porto scored for 2-1 which makes the rematch exciting.
After the defeat in the first leg of the Champions League, Porto recorded three wins in which didn’t concede a goal. Over the weekend the Dragons participated in a crucial game – a derby against Benfica. They lost this game with 1-2 and Porto is no more the leader in the standings. Roma also played a vital fixture – a city derby versus Lazio. The game was a disaster for The Yellow and Reds, and they lost with 3-0. This defeat wasn’t expected and ended Roma’s run of four consecutive wins.
Porto are a solid side at home, and they’ve proved it many times in Europe. However, this season the Dragons often concede goals, and against the better teams, it’s hard for Porto to have a clean sheet. On the other hand, Roma are a real threat in attack, but their defence allows goals in almost every fixture. Porto have to catch up, and in this will open spaces for quick counter-attacks of The Yellow and Reds.
