While choosing a bet it’s worth paying attention to the fact that Juventus are extremely dangerous on the home ground as they have 19 wins and only 2 draws in all competitions this season. As for Porto, they can’t boast of being very consistent on the road, that’s why they are unlikely to argue about the place in the Champions League quarterfinal. The betting experts notice that Allegri will miss Chiellini and Sturaro while Herrera and Corona won’t play for Porto.

The bookmakers have any shadow of a doubt about who will get past this stage: Juventus – 1,02, Porto – 17,00. However, they are a bit cautious naming Juve the favorite of the return leg: Juventus – 1,62, Draw – 3,85, Porto – 5,75. It is explained by the fact that the Old Lady may be satisfied even with the draw. Nevertheless, Porto seem unlikely to make a stand in the away game, that’s why it is recommended to bet on the Juve’s win. There is also a good option “Juventus or Draw and Total Goals under 2,5” (2,04). Besides, you can bet on the “Total Goals by Away Team under 0,5” (1,93).
