Porto vs Roma Match Preview

Roma are on course to make it third time lucky against Porto in Europe and look worth backing to reach the Champions League quarter-finals for the second consecutive season.

The Giallorossi did, of course, go all the way to the last four in 2017-18 before losing to Liverpool, beating Shakhtar Donetsk and, memorably, Barcelona in the knockout stage.

And they cannot be discounted to enjoy a similar run again for they are favourites to advance in Portugal, having claimed a 2-1 advantage from the home leg courtesy of a Nicolo Zaniolo double before conceding an away goal to Adrian Lopez.

On both occasions these clubs have met previously it was Porto who came out on top, but now the circumstances are quite different – they have never had to overturn a deficit before, or play the second leg at home with its own kind of pressure.

There is no real advantage in favour of either team on current form, with both having been on strong domestic runs until losing at the weekend against arch-rivals.

At the outset of this tie we thought there was little to choose between these sides and that still looks to be the case, so the aggregate lead Roma hold may just prove to be critical come the final reckoning.
