🔭 Juventus vs Porto: Key men, team news & predicted XIs

With Juventus needing to overturn a 2-1 deficit against Porto, tonight's Champions League round of 16 2nd leg should be a tight, tense and enthralling affair.

Here is the latest team news ahead of kickoff in Turin at 22:00 CAT. 

⚫️ Juventus

Leonardo Bonucci and Weston McKennie should return to the starting XI after coming off the bench against Lazio, although United States midfielder McKennie isn't fit to complete 90 minutes.

Matthijs de Ligt has returned to training but he's still doubtful, as is Paulo Dybala. Rodrigo Bentancur (Covid) and Danilo (suspended) are both unavailable. Talisman Cristiano Ronaldo played 20 minutes as a substitute at the weekend and should be fresh.

✅ FACT: Cristiano Ronaldo has faced Porto seven times throughout his career with just one win and one goal to his name in that sequence. 

🧮 Likely Juventus XI (4-4-2): 

Szczęsny; Cuadrado, Demiral, Bonucci, Alex Sandro; Chiesa, Rabiot, Arthur, McKennie; Ronaldo, Morata

🔵 Porto

The visitors have concerns over the availability of key men Pepe and Jesús Corona, who both returned from the weekend trip to Barcelos with injuries. Chancel Mbemba is unavailable again, while Ivan Marcano may also not be fit enough to feature, causing a potential selection headache in central defence.

🧮 Likely Porto XI (4-4-2): 

Marchesín; Manafá, Pepe, Leite, Sanusi; Corona, Uribe, Oliveira, Otávio; Taremi, Marega

✅ FACT: Porto's Iranian striker Mehdi Taremi has 15 goals & 10 assists in 34 appearances across all competitions this season. He scored in the first leg.
