Juventus Draws Porto in the knockout stage of the Champions League.

So Porto it is.

Juventus finishing first as group H winners in the group stage, and as a top seed were fortunate to draw Portoguese champions Porto in the knockout round.

The first leg will be played in Porto on February 16th and the return fixture in Turin on March 9.

The Old lady pulled off the impossible with a incredible 3-0 win on matchday 6 of Group G last week to come out ahead of Barcelona in the group.

Porto finished second in Group C behind eventual Group winners Manchester City .

In head to head matches in the Champions League Group stage Juventus have faced Porto twice and that was back in 2017 when Juventus made it to the Champions League Final, eventually losing out to eventual winners Real Madrid. In 2017 they beat Porto in Portugal 2-0 and 1-0 in Turin.

I feel very confident the way Juventus are playing in the Champions League that the Old Lady should go through to the quarters with a resounding victory in both Leagues when play resumes in February.
