Porto were very impressive in the first leg of this tie and an early goal game them a brilliant start, ultimately winning 2-1. They'll be coming into this ready for a strong defensive performance to cement their place in the next round.
Andrea Pirlo's Juventus aren't the team that we're used to seeing and they're trailing Inter Milan by 10 points in Serie A. Pirlo is demonstrating any of the reading of the game and intelligence that we saw throughout his illustrious playing career. That said, Juventus rested Ronaldo in their 3-1 victory over Juventus on Saturday and he'll be fresh and hungry.
As you can see in the game's key stats, Porto have been very strong from the off during games, taking the lead into halftime in 5 of their past Champions League games. I don't see them scoring early here, given that they'll want to take no risks and hold that lead, but I can see their trend of strong first halves continuing and them not conceding in the first half.
With that in mind I'll take +210 on the score to be 0-0 at the half. It's a tasty price and worth taking. This Porto side aren't a vintage one though and despite Pirlo's weaknesses as a manager I still thing that Ronaldo will inspire them to a victory inside 90 minutes, so we'll also have a small bet and take Draw/Juventus in the Halftime/Fulltime market.
