UCL Match Report: Juventus v FC Porto 14 March 2017

"The last win against Porto gives us some peace of mind because we have a good advantage, but the truth is that Porto are a good team and, in the first leg, they made life hard for us until we scored", he said.

The Foxes join Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Real Madrid in Friday's quarter-final draw.

Juventus went close to the treble in Allegri's first year in charge, but the Italian team lost in the Champions League final to Barcelona.

During his time at the Bernabeu, the Spaniard won the Champions League three times - with their La Decima success his last taste of glory back in 2014.

The Bianconeri led 2-0 from the first leg, and wasted little effort in seeing off the challenge of their Portuguese opposition in the return.

Porto's lingering hopes ended when Maximiliano Pereira stopped Juve striker Gonzalo Higuain's goalbound shot with his hands and was sent off, leaving Dybala to dispatch the penalty with aplomb three minutes before halftime.

"We have an important objective to achieve, we want to reach the quarter-finals".

Massimiliano Allegri's men set about completing what they had started in Portugal two and a half weeks ago. "Then we can get right to the end".

Dybala, who scored the only goal against Porto from the penalty spot on Tuesday, is optimistic Juve can reach the final, saying: "Now, all the games are hard".

"I too, like all Juventus fans, want to dream and I'm convinced that if we continue down our path calmly, with personality, and without fear of making a mistake".

We should just post our recap from the first leg between Juventus and Porto, really, because they were basically the same game.

The Champions League match between Juventus and Porto will be broadcast live on FS2 and the FoxSoccer2Go apps, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscriptions.

Nuno added: "The fact that both players are here means they have a chance of starting, but we'll see how they go after training".

Leicester's 2-1 deficit from the first leg in southern Spain was turned into a 3-2 victory on aggregate at an atmospheric King Power Stadium thanks to Wes Morgan's close-range strike in the 27th minute and Marc Albrighton's goal in the 54th.
