Andrea Pirlo wants his Juventus side to be “clever” and “patient” as they seek to overcome a slender deficit against Porto and claim a place in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Mehdi Taremi and Moussa Marega caught Juve cold at the start of each half at Estadio do Dragao last month.
Federico Chiesa reduced the arrears late on, although the fact that was the first time Porto had conceded in six Champions League matches underlined the scale of the task still to come in Turin on Tuesday.
“The result is open, we will have to be clever in knowing how to manage the match to obtain qualification,” Pirlo told a pre-match news conference.
“It is a decisive match for our Champions League campaign.”
“We will have to play a very technical game, because we will face a very compact team, with two very narrow lines and with little space and little time to think.
“It will take technique and patience.”
