The Champions League last 16 first leg ties continues on Wednesday as Porto entertain Juventus at the Estadio do Dragao hunting their first win against the Italian giants in four matches.

But the Portuguese side, who finished second behind Leicester City in the group stage, are enjoying a rich vein of form of late.

They have won their last six matches in all competitions and have kept three clean sheets in a row in Europe’s top club competition.

They have no injury concerns for the tie.

Juventus are also in good form and will be looking to extend their seven-match winning run in all competitions.

During that winning streak the Serie A Champions have only conceded twice.

Defenders Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli have both recovered from thigh injuries and are in the squad while another defender Leonardo Bonucci has been excluded after falling out with boss Massimiliano Allegri.

Sevilla welcome Leicester to the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in the other game on Wednesday that concludes the first leg ties of the round of 16.
