Pirlo compared Porto to Atletico Madrid

Juve’s mentor paid tribute to the opponent.

Juventus head coach Andrea Pirlo spoke to reporters ahead of the game against Porto. The teams will play in the 1/8 finals of the Champions League. The first match will take place tomorrow night in Portugal (23:00 Moscow time).

“It will be very difficult for us, because our opponent plays well in defense. Porto is somewhat reminiscent of Atlético, they also boast a solid defense.

We need to be patient and wait for our chance to find a gap in the opponent’s defense and take advantage of the situation. At the same time, we must not relax, because Porto is very dangerous on counterattacks, ” Pirlo said at a press conference.
