After being defeated 1-0 at the San Siro, Porto play in the Champions League on Tuesday night at 8pm BST. Zaidu Sanusi and his team mates will try to oust Inter Milan in this round of 16 second leg. They have the ambition to qualify for the quarter-finals.
In front of their home fans at the Stadio Dragao, FC Porto have a lot to prove. The Portuguese showed incredible personal strength in the first leg before finally falling flat in the dying moments with a goal from Romelu Lukaku. They even finished 10 to 11. On Tuesday, the Dragons will hope to show their true home values when they host Inter.
Inter Milan know their mission is far from over despite having a slim advantage in this dual encounter. Between that win over Porto at home and now, the Nerazzurri have lost two of their three matches in Serie A, most recently last weekend against Spezia. With them still under pressure to retain second place in Serie A, Inzaghi is expected to lead the team to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Unfavorable record against Portuguese opponents away from home
Inter also have a terrible record against the Portuguese’s away opponents in UEFA competitions. The Italian club won only one of its eight matches. Inzaghi hopes to somewhat erase this record and lead his team to the next round with a positive result against Porto. However, the goal is clear to Zaidou Sanusi and his associates. They are keen to oust Inter to shoulder the quarter-finals as Benfica Lisbon.
