Roma won the first leg 2-1. All of the goals took place in the 70-80 minute mark with Zaniolo scoring twice before Adrian Lopez got that key away goal for Porto. It was an interesting game with Roma getting 14 shots – 9 on target – while allowing Porto to have 58% of the possession.

Round of 16, 2nd Leg
1st Leg: Roma won 2-1
It’s an intriguing game as Roma are NOT a good away team. Their record in Serie A is 5 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses out of 14 games. Porto meanwhile are a beast at home with 10 wins out of 12 appearances.
It’s always risky betting on games at this stage because you never know if it is going to be a tight affair. One team will always be tightening up defensively. But the stats suggest this one is good for a few goals and maybe a home team win.
