AS Roma vs FC Porto UEFA Champions League match on Date: Tuesday, 12 February 2019, Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET & Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
The gypsies will meet the hosts when they host FC Porto for the 16th Champions League qualifiers. The Italians entered a group stage and lost 3 of their 6 matches, but finished second in the group behind Real Madrid. Rome had a series of victories in the Champions League that lasted a year. It ended with the defeat against Real Madrid in the last group stage.
It was expected to be more consistent than this season, but they become a kind of winning and losing the team. The fourth place in the Serie A, to 14 points of the second place, explains Napoli. They also lose many points at home, even though they have only lost two of the 15 competitions.

Porto is a difficult opponent that you can negotiate when you play and you are in a good mood for the Olympiastadion. The last time they were here, the gypsies were defeated 3-0 and denied a place in the UEFA Champions League group stage. These statistics will greatly increase your confidence.
In addition, Sergio Conceicao’s men dominated the group stage of the Champions League and finished with 5 games out of 6 without defeat. Even your December home form is consistent. I have no doubt that they are ready to fight in an area where many elite teams have failed in the last edition.

AS Roma vs FC Porto : Prediction
The men of Eusebio Di Francesco are known to intimidate the great teams for this reason. Barcelona and Liverpool suffered heavy losses last year in round 16 of the competition. It will be interesting to see if they can maintain a high level of confidence and concentration compared to a team less known as Porto.
This does not mean that we can underestimate the Portuguese giants. My comment is based on the fact that they have not been tested in the group stage and their unbeaten record in the competition has nothing to do with a match like this. In addition, they paid little attention to their recent visits to Italian soil, losing 4 and shooting 2 out of 6.
The gypsies are the favorites in this match, but they must solve the defense problems if they must bring Porto to the new race with a significant advantage. Eusebio’s men have not conceded their last 8 home games in Serie A, which is good news for fans of Portuguese travel.
Based on the previous statistics, I hope that each team wins with small patches. However, it is more likely that we will see some objectives since both parties show that they have firepower in the attack.
- AS Roma – 3 vs FC Porto – 2
