LAST MEETING

The pair met in the opening game of the 2020/21 Champions League group stage campaign, as City's competition got off to a fine start with a 3-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.

The visitors took an early lead, but City fought back with a quick leveller from Sergio Aguero and second-half strikes from Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres completing what, ultimately, was a comfortable win.

FORM GUIDE

City returned to winning ways in the Premier League with an emphatic, record-breaking 5-0 win over Burnley. becoming the first team since 1907 to win four successive home games by at least a five-goal margin against the same opponent.

Pep Guardiola's men won three of our five November games, securing our progression to the Champions League Round of 16 in the process.

Porto won all five of their games in all competitions in November, including successive European victories over Marseille.

Having already secured progression to the Round of 16, Pep Guardiola's men will clinch top spot in Group C with a win or draw at the Estádio do Dragão.

Should Porto avoid defeat (or if Olympiacos beat Marseille), the Portuguese side would also progress.

PEP PREVIEW

“We made an incredible group stage.

“Especially our two games away, the second half against Porto and the first half against Olympiakos at home.

“We made an incredible performance [against Olympiakos away].

“Unfortunately, we could only score one goal, but the team is alive.”

Sérgio Conceição PREVIEW

“Now we have to prepare the next Champions League match, on Tuesday, as there is no time to rest.

“We want to be in all competitions, but we have to look at it differently because the players are not machines, it’s very difficult to keep presenting high-level answers in face of this heavy schedule.

“We will send in the team that we think is best for it. It’s one match at a time and it will always be like this in the future.”
