All of those victories have come with the side scoring at least twice and while Pirlo’s men would secure progression with a 1-0 triumph on Tuesday, there is some interest in backing them to get among the goals.
Whilst Porto have been strong defensively in this season’s competition, their five clean sheets in the group stage largely came against limited opposition and their visit to the Etihad Stadium saw them beaten 3-1 by Manchester City.
Four of their last seven away games in the Champions League have seen them concede at least twice and backing a repeat this week looks the way to go.
Juventus vs Porto Tips and Predictions
The hosts can be backed at 7/10 (1.70) to win and score over 1.5 goals, while backing them to win by two goals or more pays out at 6/5 (2.20).
