Our prediction for this Champions League match:
A place in the Champions League quarter-finals will be at stake when Porto and Inter face each other at Estadio do Dragao on Tuesday evening. The Dragons aim to overcome a one-goal deficit in front of home fans, but they will have to do it without midfielder Otavio, who is banned for the match. All Evanilson, Joao Marcelo, and Meixedo are sidelined with injuries, while Joao Mario is a major doubt.
The Nerazzurri, on the other hand, are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in the second leg, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on under 2.5 goals. Both Correa and Skriniar are rated doubtful for the return leg, while Dalbert remains in the recovery room. All Dimarco, Dumfries, and Calhanoglu should be recalled to the starting XI after the trio was rested in a 2-1 loss to Spezia at the weekend.
Highlighted Player (Pepe):
Pepe is a professional footballer who plays for Porto as a defender. The Portuguese international played for Maritimo at the start of his senior career and in 2004 he moved to Porto. After making 64 league appearances for the Dragons, he signed a contract with Real Madrid in 2007 and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular.
Pepe is well known for his hard tackles and referees often show him red card. The Real Madrid centre back often played as a defensive midfielder under Jose Mourinho and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in all competitions in the 2013/2014 La Liga campaign.
The Portuguese footballer won his second Champions League trophy with Real Madrid in the 2015/2016 season and later in 2016 he helped A Selecao win the European Championship trophy. Portugal defeated France in the title game and Pepe played an important role in Fernando Santos’ team in the Euro 2016 final. The Real Madrid defender was born in Maceio, Brazil on 26 February, 1983.
Highlighted Team (Inter):
Internazionale Milano, known as Internazionale, Inter or Inter named Milan, is a football club from Italy, founded on March 9, 1908 by a number of "rebels" who did not like in the regulations of the Milan Cricket and Football Club, now known as AC Milan. The main objection was that no foreign players were allowed. In 1928 the club merged with US Milanese and strongly entered a time when Ambrosiana-Inter survived.
The club, nicknamed the Nerazzurri or the blue / blacks has had many successes. This is how Inter Milan won 18 national titles, seven times the Italian Cup, the UEFA Cup 3x, and 3x times the Champions League, formerly known as the European Cup I.
