FC Porto

Last updated: Wed 06 March 2019 12:18
In Brief

Leadership in domestic league was lost this past weekend. Corona available for the second leg. Wilson Manafá ineligible.

Looking Back

Porto will be playing this next match with their spirit deeply hurt after they lost at home against arch-rivals Benfica: a comeback 1-2 defeat.

Even worst, Porto lost the leadership from Portuguese League table after 15 consecutive rounds on top.

Adrian Lopez' goal at Rome keeps Porto's hopes alive for qualification.

Looking Ahead

Mexican winger Jesus Corona will be available for the second leg match after having missed the previous two CL games on suspension.

Wilson Manafá, who has been the right-back option in the last four games, won't be able to keep his place, as he was not registred for this competition.

Éder Militão should be returning to the starting lineup, after the disciplinary incident of a couple of weeks ago, and be Manafá's replacement. The experienced Maxi Pereira is the alternative.

Aboubakar is out on long injury. Rarely used Loum and Mbemba are not registered.

Third goalkeeper Fabiano picked an injury on Tuesday.

Points of Interest

Porto was visited by Roma twice before. A win and a draw were the results.

Roma

In Brief

Beaten 0-3 in the away derby against Lazio. Playing away at FC Porto. Coric, Under and Pastore out. Manolas with the group.

Looking Back

Put under heavy pressure by Lazio, they immediately went 1 goal down, tried a reaction after the break but ended up succumbing twice more.

Fazio offered a nightmarish performance just like Kolarov and Perotti, when he came on. Dzeko and El Shaarawy were never dangerous. Pastore came close to equalising.

Looking Ahead

Having won 2-1 in the first leg, Roma must avoid more than 1-goal gap and a defeat without scoring in Porto.

Coric, Under and Pastore are unavailable. Manolas has overcome a 'flu.

Fazio and Marcano are contending for a place in the heart of the defence while Karsdorp could be preferred to Florenzi at right-back. The latter could also be acting as right winger. Mirante could be considered instead of Olsen in the goal.

Points of Interest

Roma travelled to Porto twice: they lost 0-2 in 1982 and drew 1-1 in 2016. In both occasions they were eliminated from the competition.
