Andrea Pirlo, the Juventus manager, says he has great respect for Porto ahead of their encounter in Portugal.
“It’s a difficult game against a very strong team, one that has been a reality of Italian football for several years now,” Pirlo said. 
“We have seen their progress not only in Serie A, but also in the Champions League, so it’ll be tough and we must face them with the same attitude as a top club.
“I am not amazed by their consistency, because they’ve been doing this for a few years now thanks to the work of the coach and club. They are a reality and therefore we owe them great respect."
The last competitive match between Porto and Juventus was on 14 March 2017.
Juventus secured a narrow 1-0 win over Porto in a Champions League game which was played at the Allianz Stadium.
