Why bet on Porto against Juventus?

In the first leg, Porto had no trouble beating Juvy. Hosting Juventus as a home underdog, Porto handled everything Juventus threw at them. Porto wasn’t perfect, they did relinquish a goal, but Taremi and Marega helped Porto get it done. Taremi set the tone with a goal in the second minute. Marega then put Porto up by 2 when he kicked in a goal at minute 46. Porto can repeat the first game performance.

Why bet on Juventus against Porto?

Porto caught Juventus napping in the first mach. Juventus knew the second leg was on their pitch. Knowing that, Juvy seemed to play more defense than offense. They escaped Porto down a goal on the aggregate. But like most soccer teams, Juventus scores more goals on their pitch than they do on their opponents’ pitches. If Juvy steps onto the grass intent on dominating Porto, they have the talent to do so.

Juventus Vs Porto Final Betting Analysis

Porto played great in the first leg. The underdog had all the advantages, though. Not only did they battle Juventus on their pitch, but Juvy entered the game off back-to-back battles versus Serie A squads Inter Milano and Napoli.

Inter Milano and Napoli are two of Juvy’s biggest rivals. On Tuesday, Ronaldo’s squad takes on Porto after dominating a couple of mediocre Serie A peers, Spezia and Hellas Verona. Expect Juventus to have more bounce to their step in the second leg than they did in the first. 

Porto would have a much stronger hand if they hadn’t allowed Chiesa’s late goal at the 82nd in the first leg. But up only a single goal, Juventus knows that if they beat Porto by 2, they move to the UCL Semifinals. Chiesa, Ronaldo, Danilo and the rest should be ultra-aggressive in this match. Juventus on the handicap is the play.
