Porto vs Juventus - Competition: UEFA Champions League
Date: 22 February 2017 - Kick-off Time: 19:45 GMT
Venue: Estadio Do Dragao, Porto

FC Porto team are enjoying a good run of form. They hammered Tondela 4-0 at home last Friday to make it six wins on the bounce in all competitions. The sit 2nd in the league standings, just one point shy of Benfica. In the UCL the Dragoes managed to finish 2nd in their group behind Leicester City, with an 11 point haul from their six games. Their last group game saw the Portuguese outfit battering Leicester 5-0, but Claudio Ranieri's men showed up in Porto playing a reserve side.
Nuno Espirito Santo has a full squad of players to choose from and will play with his usual 4-1-3-2 system. Brazilian forward Tiquinho Soares, who signed from Vitor Guimaraes last month, is in contention with Diogo Jota for a starting berth up fron alongside Andre Silva. Behind the attacking duo, the likes of Oliver Torres, Jesus Corona and Yacine Brahimi are likely to start as offensive midfielders, with Andre Andre and Herrera providing further options. Danilo Pereira will start as defensive shield in midfield while Iker Casillas will play between the posts.
Juventus team have already amassed a 8 point lead at the top of Serie A and enter this match ahving won their last six league matches. The Old Lady eased past of Palermo (4-1) last Friday, meaning they have won 40 consecutive Serie A outings at home. In the Champions League, Juve were held to home draws with both OL Lyon and Sevilla but they won all the three matches on the travels - 4:0 over Dinamo Zagreb, 1-0 Over Lyon and 3-1 against Sevilla FC - to comfortably top their group.
Massimiliano Allegri is expected to keep faith in his new 4-2-3-1 system. Mario Mandzukic and Juan Cuadrado will start as offensive wingers while Pualo Dybala will play in the number ten role behind the lone striker Gonzalo Higuain. The midfield pair will be probably formed by Sami Khedira and Miralem Pjanic. In defense, Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli are both doubtful, meaning that Daniele Rugani could be included in the starting XI. Stefan Lichtsteiner has been reinstated back into the UEFA list and could get the nod over Dani Alves. Alex Sandro will be the other full back.

Probable lineups:
FC Porto: Casillas – M.Pereira, Felipe, Marcano, Telles – D.Pereira – Corona, Torres, Brahimi – Jota, Silva.
Juventus: Buffon – Lichtsteiner, Bonucci, Chiellini (Rugani), Alex Sandro – Pjanic, Khedira – Cuadrado, Dybala, Mandzukic – Higuain.

Leicester City vs Derby County - Competition: English FA Cup
Leicester City team are completely unrecognisable from the team that won the EPL last term. The Foxes have lost 3-0 in three of their last five matches in all competition, with the only non defeat being a 2-2 draw at Pride Park in the original match of this FA Cup tie. Furthermore, they have only scored one goal in their last seven league matches. In the previous East Midlands derbies, Leicester have won three of the last four meetings and five of the last 10, losing just once.
Claudio Ranieri has revealed he will make changes to the side as he looks to bring fresh legs in ahead of a big run of games in their bid to beat the drop. The Italian manager could be without Islam Slimani and Leonardo Ulloa with the latter unlikely to play anyway after falling out with the club. Midfielder Daniel Amartey is available after returning from the AFCON duty. New signing Molla Wagué played 90 minutes for the club’s Development Squad on Monday evening, but is ineligible for this competition.
Derby County team enter this match on the back of a 1-0 narrow defeat to Newcastle at the weekend. Prior to that they recorded a convincing 3-0 win over Ipswich Town courtesy of strikes from Tom Ince, Darren Bent and Craig Bryson. They are 8th in the English Championship table, 3 points outside the top six. The Rams' away form is hit-and-miss and also their recent trips to face fellow promotion hopefuls Leeds and Norwich City have ended in defeat. Furthermore, they have lost each of their last five away games against Leicester.
Manager Steve McLaren has a depleted squad and will have to reshuffle his pack. Craig Bryson is a major doubt while midfielder Will Hughes will be a big absences for the Rams as he has recently joined Max Lowe, James Wilson, Craig Forsyth and George Thorne on the sidelines. Striker David Nugent could feature after he injured his knee during on debut against Leeds United in January.
