Porto will take Roma on Wednesday in a second leg meeting of their 1/8 final of the Champions League.
First leg already exceeded the line of 31.5 Tackles and proved yet again that games involving Porto ends with high amount of attempts(37). I believe that in the second leg there will be even more tension and full of intensity, since the tie is open for both teams.
Recent 3-0 loss to Lazio has increased the pressure on Di Francesco. Roma manager could reportedly be sacked from his position if gets knocked out of the UEFA Champions League. From other side Porto's preparation was far from ideal as they lost the O Classico 2-1 to Benfica and dropped out of leader position. In the same time broke their 18-match unbeaten home record.
Cuneyt Cakir is nominated for the upcoming fixture as we know Turkish referee likes to give a cards and show up.
