The winner of the Italian league title in the last nine seasons in a row challenges Porto
Juventus had been crowned champions twice before, but luck has suffered in several other editions. The match also sees a showdown between Brazilians Alex Sandro and Danilo, Juventus defenders, and their former team Porto. Ronaldo wrote on Instagram to share pictures online: “This defeat will not discourage us, we have to keep our heads up and think about the Champions League” about the 01-0 defeat against Napoli last Saturday in the Italian league. The match also sees a special showdown between Porto manager Sergio Conceicao and Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo after they had previously met inside the green rectangle during six seasons in which Conceiso played for The Tsiu, Parma, and Inter Milan in Italy. Arthur Melo and Juan Cuadrado will miss Juventus’ clash against Porto in the Champions League final. The Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo returns to the club with great ambitions to lead Juventus, the winner of the Serie A title in the last 9 seasons in a row, against Porto, the Portuguese league titleholder, and two-time Champions League winner. Today’s match represents the first of three difficult encounters for Dortmund over the next eight days, with the team then hosting Schalke in the quarter-finals of the German Cup and then the team as hosts Borussia Moenchengladbach in the Bundesliga. I am confident that you will see the result before the end of the season.” Sevilla is missing the efforts of Lucas Ocampos due to an ankle injury and his teammate Marcos Acuna is expected to miss the squad in this match.
