Porto v Roma preview: all we need to know

Reporter’s perspective (Carlos Machado, UEFA.com): Whose spirit will be easy first? Both sides are disorder from large domestic defeats – Porto mislaid 2-1 during home to Benfica on Saturday, while Lazio kick Roma 3-0. If they measure and don’t concede, Porto are through, so Éder Militão’s lapse is a genuine fillip – he should join Pepe, Felipe and Alex Telles in a tough defence. Francisco Soares, meanwhile, might be a male to partner Moussa Marega adult front. Could these changes make a difference?

Marega v Manolas: Porto lacked invasion in a initial leg though their five-goal heading scorer, though fit-again Moussa Marega will lead a assign on home soil, where he has struck in each UEFA Champions League tour this season. In his way, illness permitting, will be Kostas Manolas, Roma’s many arguable defender, whose success or differently in tying Marega’s change will go a prolonged approach to determining a outcome of this finely staid tie.

Sérgio Conceição, Porto coach

We have to win a game, though there is no rush. We have to be unchanging defensively. Roma have a third-best conflict in Serie A, so change will be key. Our self-belief comes from a work we do each day, not from any particular player.

Having additional options is important, though it’s not always decisive. What matters is a team. If we do ourselves justice, we have a good possibility of reaching a quarter-finals.

Eusebio Di Francesco, Roma coach

We will have to be dynamic and urge a advantage we have – and demeanour to strike them on a mangle when we can. We’ll need to be really switched on defensively throughout.

Every actor in a patrol knows they need to be prepared to play during any impulse and no one knows a group we will pick. we wish to decide, in a end, by looking into a players’ eyes and saying who is many prepared for a battle.
