Estadio do Dragao, 8 p.m. It is the stage and time of the match in which the Porto club seeks to reverse the tie in the Round of 16 in its favour, in the face of Inter Milan, who takes advantage of the goal scored by Lukaku in Italy.
However, in front of a blue sea of 50,000 fans, Sérgio Conceição’s side will try to respect the club’s manuscripts in the media for the Champions League, on a trip that will have two very important victims, first Otávio for suspension – sent off in the first leg – and now Joao Mario, suffering from a contracture sprain during Received by Estoril.
And these two handicaps make Sérgio Conceição, once again, have to improvise when it comes to starting in the 11, as Pepê will play in a convenient position – right-back – and this removes, to some extent, some of the unbalanced power in attack.
In defence, it is also worth noting the return of Marcano, who missed the match against Estoril due to disciplinary exigencies – fifth yellow in the tournament – but the biggest doubts lie in who will play Ottavio’s role.
Andre Franco could be chosen, who in the future will mark the debut of the former young Estoril in the Champions League, and the middle lane duo is expected to consist of Uribe and Grujic.
On the left side of the central area, there seems to be no doubt about Galleno’s choice of that space, and it remains to be seen who will accompany Taremi on the offensive front. Evanilson has been considered fit and could be a surprise in the starting line-up, but Dani Namasu and Tony Martinez are also favorites for the place. There is also the possibility that Sérgio Conceição may have an ace up his sleeve and that could pass to Gabriel Veron. Today, at 7 pm, it will be known …
Possible eleven: Diogo Costa, Pepe, Pepe, Marcano, Zido, Andre Franco, Uribe, Grujic, Galino, Evanelson and Taremi
