Inter Milan will begin their latest attempt to progress beyond the UEFA Champions League last 16 for the first time since 2010/11 when they welcome FC Porto to San Siro on Wednesday.
The Italian giants qualified for this round of the tournament by finishing second in their group after three games, including a famous win over Barcelona and losing two (D1). They come into this fixture in good form after a five-match unbeaten run in all competitions (W4, D1).
They have lost just one of their last 12 competitive home games (W11), suggesting Simon Inzaghi’s boys could take charge of the tie at the San Siro, where the last seven UCL matches they’ve hosted were won by the side scoring first (Inter: W4, L3).
Porto booked their place in this round of the UCL by finishing top of their group. After starting poorly with two losses in the group stages, the Portuguese side went on a four-game winning run to secure the top spot and book their place here.
They have maintained their form ahead of this game as they have won their last ten competitive matches and are unbeaten since late October (W19, D3).
Six clean sheets across their last seven competitive away games (W6, D1) also show how tough they are to break down. So we can expect a low-scoring affair here with a high chance of an under 2.5 goals game.
