Porto v Inter Milan
UEFA Champions League, Round of 16, Leg 2
Estadio Do Dragao, Porto, Portugal
16th March, 01:30 a.m.
The second leg of the Champions League round of 16 continues, in which Inter will have to face Porto.
In the first leg, which was played in Milan, the Nerazzurri prevailed 1-0 and now they will have to try not to nullify the advantage. Simone Inzaghi’s team has not appeared in great shape in the last few league outings, while in Europe they have appeared more cynical and prepared. The last knockout suffered against Spezia showed all the difficulties he’s having in this period, and it won’t be easy to face the match against Porto calmly.
Conceicao’s team knows how to play football, is very intense and is very skilled in counter-attacks. The Nerazzurri will have to show the best side of themselves to avoid leaving the scene too soon.
It should also be noted that Porto on that occasion had to finish the match with 10 players after Otavio’s expulsion, who will therefore not be able to take the field for the second leg. In the last match played the Portuguese team achieved a victory in the league, winning 3 to 2 with Estoril Praia. At the moment Porto maintain their second place in the Primeira Liga.
The next round is certainly a goal to be achieved, and Inter must not fail. a draw is enough for the Nerazzurri to go through, and in any case Porto must be able to win with at least two goals to be able to hope to access the quarterfinals.
