PORTO vs JUVENTUS

Ronaldo’s Juventus will try to stomp on the continent, after many years of frustrations. Will this be the year of consecration? Hard to know. Pirlo’s team for the first time in a long time lost dominance in Serie A, comes after losing to Napoli and must improve their performance. He has an ace of spades in Ronaldo, but he will have to take advantage of it with a team performance that is not yet seen.

Porto, meanwhile, is second in the Portuguese League, 10 behind the leader Sporting de Lisboa. They had a good group stage, after qualifying second to three points behind the leader, Manchester City.
