Juventus welcome back striker Mario Mandzukic (illness) and winger Juan Cuadrado (suspension) as they take a 2-0 lead into the second leg of the last-16 Champions League tie with Porto.

Despite that wealth of attacking talent, the fact Tuesday's hosts have conceded the fewest goals in the Champions League to date - just two shipped in seven outings - is quite remarkable and stands them in flawless stead poised to progress past the knockout stages.

Massimiliano Allegri's men were on top right from kick off, Paulo Dybala squandering an early chance in just the third minute - lashing his right-footed attempt high over the bar when he really should have squared the ball to Gonzalo Higuain. If we get through we'll also be on the same level now.

Can Porto create Champions League history?

He told reporters: "Winning the Champions League at my age in just my second year at the club would be incredible". Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli are getting a much-needed rest, but Benatia has gotten only limited playing time this season, with just two starts and one appearance off the bench since the new year.

'Some of my team-mates have already won the trophy and I'd like to be decisive in a Champions League game'.

Now Porto will travel to a venue at which the host has won its last 13 games in all competitions and last 20 in European competitions.

Juventus have avoided defeat in 10 of their last 11 Champions League last-16 games in Turin, so the chances of any upset are slim and new Paddy Power customers are absolutely advised not to give up the 4/1 (5.0) offer on the favourites here to march on. In some ways, we're doing better than them'.
