FC Porto and AS Roma meet this Wednesday at 8 pm at the Estádio do Dragão.
The Classic will be there, but FC Porto will have to react quickly to the championship deficit and have a golden opportunity to avenge the defeat against rival Benfica on Wednesday. The dragons host AS Roma in the second leg of the last 16 of the Champions League and look for a place in the next round of the competition.
For this, the team of Sérgio Conceição will have to give back to an eliminatory that is, at the moment, favorable to the adversary. In the first leg, the Italians won in Rome (2-1), but the goal of Adrián López leaves FC Porto within a clear goal of the qualifying.
In the preview of the match, Sérgio Conceição admitted that FC Porto will have to be smart in how they will approach the game, but believes that his squad has all the skills to win and seal the qualifying.
On the other side is an AS Roma at a bad moment. Eusebio Di Francesco is on the verge of being fired and the future of the Italian coach depends on what will happen tonight.
The kick-off is scheduled for 20 hours.
