Match background Only this chapter

Juventus welcome Porto to Turin needing to overturn a first-leg deficit in the round of 16 for the second year in a row.

• Goals early in each half from Mehdi Taremi and Moussa Marega put Porto in charge of the first leg at the Estádio do Dragão, until a Federico Chiesa strike eight minutes from time offered a route back into the tie for Juve, who bowed out to Lyon in last season's competition after failing to undo the damage of an away first-leg defeat back on home soil.

• Juve, who are in the last 16 for the seventh season in a row, had never previously lost to the Portuguese side (W4 D1) and came into this tie having finished first in Group G thanks to a remarkable Matchday 6 triumph at Barcelona.

• Porto finished second behind Manchester City in Group C, conceding only three goals and winning four of their six matches as they progressed from the UEFA Champions League group stage to the knockout phase for the fourth time in a row.

Previous meetings
• Juventus beat Porto 2-0 away and 1-0 at home in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League round of 16. Marko Pjaca and Dani Alves were on target in the first leg at the Estádio do Dragão, before Paulo Dybala's 42nd-minute penalty settled the second game at the Juventus Stadium.

• Juve took four points off Porto in the 2001/02 UEFA Champions League first group stage, following up a 0-0 draw in Portugal with a 3-1 victory in Turin. Clayton struck an early goal for Octávio Machado's visitors before Alessandro Del Piero and Paolo Montero turned the game for Marcello Lippi's Juve. David Trezeguet sealed the victory late on.

• The Bianconeri also beat Porto 2-1 in the 1984 European Cup Winners' Cup final in Basel. Beniamino Vignola's early effort was cancelled out as António Morais's Porto drew level through António Sousa but Zbigniew Boniek won it for Giovanni Trapattoni's Juventus with a goal just before half-time.

Form guide

• Andrea Pirlo's side picked up 15 points to finish top of Group G, a closing 3-0 win at Barcelona – 2-0 winners in Turin on Matchday 2 – enabling them to finish above the Spanish side on head-to-head record. Juve also recorded two victories against both Dynamo Kyiv (2-0 a, 3-0 h) and Ferencváros (4-1 a, 2-1 h).

• Cristiano Ronaldo was on target against Ferencváros on Matchday 4 and has now found the net in 16 consecutive editions of the UEFA Champions League, matching the feat of Lionel Messi and Karim Benzema.

• Champions of Italy for a record ninth season in a row in 2019/20, and 36th time in all, this is Juve's 21st UEFA Champions League campaign; they have now reached the last 16 in 18 of those seasons, 2020/21 marking the seventh successive campaign in which they have progressed to the knockout phase.

• The Bianconeri, under Maurizio Sarri, finished first in their section ahead of Atlético de Madrid in last season's competition having also won five of their six fixtures (D1) but bowed out in the round of 16, eliminated by Lyon on away goals (0-1 a, 2-1 h).

• The Turin team have finished first in their UEFA Champions League section on 14 occasions, including in each of the last three seasons.

• Winners in 1985 and 1996, Juventus have played in nine European Cup finals – losing a record seven, including all of their last five.

• Juventus have lost only five of their 45 European matches at the Juventus Stadium (W28 D12), although four of those defeats have come in their last 13.

• Juventus are in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 for the 12th time (W7 L4); last season's defeat by Lyon ended a run of three successive aggregate victories.

• Juventus's home record against Portuguese sides is W5 D1 L1, most recently recording a 2-1 win against Sporting CP in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage. The Bianconeri's sole home loss to a Portuguese Liga club came in their first encounter, Benfica triumphing 1-0 in Turin in a 1967/68 European Champion Clubs' Cup semi-final second leg (3-0 aggregate), though equally damaging was a goalless draw against Benfica in the second leg of their 2013/14 UEFA Europa League semi-final that denied them a place in the final, staged in their home stadium.

• Before the first leg of this tie, all four of Juve's previous defeats by Portuguese opponents had come against Benfica.

• Juve's record in two-legged knockout ties against Portuguese clubs is W3 L2.

• Juve have won 15 of the 34 UEFA ties in which they lost the away first leg, although they were beaten by Lyon last season. On the six occasions the Bianconeri have lost the away game 2-1, they have won four ties on aggregate, although they lost the last two, against Liverpool in the 2004/05 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals (0-0 h) and Benfica in that 2013/14 UEFA Europa League semi-final.

• Juventus's record in six UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W3 L3:
3-0 v Ajax, 1977/78 European Champion Clubs' Cup quarter-final
1-4 v Widzew Łódź, 1980/81 UEFA Cup second round
4-2 v Argentinos Juniors, 1985 European/South American Cup final
1-3 v Real Madrid, 1986/87 European Champion Clubs' Cup second round
4-2 v Ajax, 1995/96 UEFA Champions League final
2-3 v AC Milan, 2002/03 UEFA Champions League final

• Porto are unbeaten in this season's UEFA Champions League since a 3-1 Matchday 1 defeat at Manchester City, winning the next three – at home against Olympiacos (2-0) and Marseille (3-0) plus a 2-0 victory in France – before a goalless draw against City in Portugal ensured they would finish in second place in Group C. They made it five successive UEFA Champions League clean sheets with a 2-0 win at Olympiacos on Matchday 6.

• The Dragons had not conceded a goal in the competition in 549 minutes before Chiesa's first-leg strike for Juve.

• This is Porto's 24th UEFA Champions League campaign, fewer only than Real Madrid and Barcelona (both 25). The Portuguese side have now qualified for the last 16 on each of their last four appearances in the group stage.

• Porto's 2019/20 UEFA Champions League campaign lasted a single tie, Krasnodar beating them on away goals in the third qualifying round (1-0 a, 2-3 h). They went on to finish first in a UEFA Europa League section including Rangers, Young Boys and Feyenoord, but were beaten by Bayer Leverkusen in the round of 32 (1-2 a, 1-3 h).

• Porto have lost four of their last 11 matches in the UEFA Champions League proper (W6 D1).

• The 2-0 win at Marseille on Matchday 4 ended the Dragons' run of three straight away defeats in the UEFA Champions League proper; they had been unbeaten in the previous five (W2 D3) before that sequence of losses and have now been victorious in their last two away games.

• Sérgio Conceição's side won the club's eighth domestic double in 2019/20, claiming Porto's 29th league title and a 17th Portuguese Cup.

• Porto's record in the round of 16 is W4 L7; they have won only two of their last six ties although they were victorious in the most recent, against Roma in 2018/19 (1-2 a, 3-1 h aet).

• That loss at Roma two seasons ago means Porto have yet to win away in the UEFA Champions League round of 16, where their record on the road is D4 L7.

• A 3-0 win at Roma in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League play-off second leg is Porto's only victory in their last eight visits to Italy (D2 L5), and was their first there since a 3-2 success at AC Milan in the 1996/97 group stage.

• Porto have won 34 of the 42 UEFA competition ties in which they recorded a home first-leg victory, although they lost the last, against Bayern München in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals (3-1 h, 1-6 a). When winning the home first leg 2-1 their aggregate record is W2 L2, with the last two such ties coming at this stage of the UEFA Champions League against English clubs: a victory over Manchester United in Porto's triumphant 2003/04 campaign (1-1 a) preceding a defeat by Arsenal in 2009/10 (0-5 a).

• Porto's record in three UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L2:
3-5 v Sampdoria, 1994/95 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup quarter-final
8-7 v Once Caldas, 2004 European/South American Cup
1-4 v Schalke, 2007/08 UEFA Champions League round of 16

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with AC Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Real Madrid's 2018 triumph made them the first team to win three successive European Cups twice. The Spanish side won the first five editions of the tournament, between 1956 and 1960; Ajax (1971–73) and Bayern München (1974–76) have also lifted the trophy three years in a row.

• Only two teams have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Borussia Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome), while Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

Knockout stage
• Real Madrid have qualified for the UEFA Champions League knockout phase a record 25 times, including 24 in succession. They have also played a competition-high 99 knockout phase matches – ahead of Bayern München (96) and Barcelona (95).

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 49 times, including six in 2018/19 – a competition record for a single season – and Paris Saint-Germain in last season's round of 16.

• Before 2018/19, only twice – Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos in the 1995/96 semi-finals and Internazionale's victory against Bayern in the 2010/11 round of 16 – had a side progressed after a home first-leg loss. However, Ajax again (against Real Madrid) and Manchester United (against Paris Saint-Germain) both achieved the feat in the 2018/19 round of 16 before Tottenham (against Ajax) did likewise in the semi-finals.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by Barcelona against Paris in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home; Roma equalled that margin in the 2017/18 quarter-finals, turning round a 4-1 first-leg loss at Barcelona with a 3-0 home success, while in the 2018/19 semi-finals Liverpool lost 3-0 in the first leg at Barcelona but went through after a 4-0 home victory.

• Thirty-four ties have been decided on away goals, including 13 where the triumphant team lost the first leg. Bayern and Monaco have benefited from the away goals rule five times – more than any other club – whereas Internazionale have been eliminated by that method a record four times.

• In all, 30 ties have required extra time. Fourteen have been settled by extra time alone: seven round of 16 encounters including Atlético de Madrid-Liverpool in 2019/20, five quarter-finals, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool, and the 2013/14 final between Real Madrid and Atlético.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Lyon on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties. Bayern, Chelsea and Atlético have all appeared in three shoot-outs, sharing the competition record, with Bayern, Atlético and Liverpool having won the most (two apiece).

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Atlético and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid's defeat of Manchester City in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool (versus Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at Schalke in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting CP in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16.

• Bayern eventually beat Sporting by a record aggregate margin of 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie until it was equalled by Liverpool's 7-6 aggregate win against Roma in the 2017/18 semi-final.

• Bayern and Manchester City jointly hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match. Bayern beat both Basel (2011/12) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg, while City beat Schalke by the same scoreline at the same stage of the 2018/19 competition.

• A record five clubs from England participated in the 2017/18 knockout phase. Including 2019/20, England has also provided four clubs on eight other occasions – as has Spain six times and Germany three. England is the only nation to have provided four quarter-finalists in a season, 2018/19 being the third occasion after 2007/08 and 2008/09.

• There are four clubs from two nations in the round of 16 for only the fourth time in 2020/21 (Germany and Spain). England and Spain both had four apiece in 2008/09, there were four each from England and Germany in 2013/14 while in 2019/20 Spain and England each had four representatives.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to have lifted the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win it three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) and Zinédine Zidane (2016, 2017, 2018) have replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburg 1983), José Mourinho (Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

Goalscoring records
• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in Barcelona's 7-1 win against Bayer Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat matched by Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Fourteen more players, also including Messi and Robert Lewandowski twice, have scored four times in a game, most recently Olivier Giroud for Chelsea at Sevilla in the 2020/21 group stage. That was the fourth quadruple in succession to be scored away from home after Bayern's Serge Gnabry and Lewandowski (group stage v Tottenham and Crvena zvezda respectively) and Josip Iličić (Atalanta v Valencia, round of 16 second leg) all achieved the feat in 2019/20.

• Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 67 goals in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds, more than any other player. Messi is second on 47 goals, ahead of Lewandowski (24), Thomas Müller (23), and Karim Benzema, Raúl González and Andriy Shevchenko (all 18).

• Messi's hat-trick against PSV Eindhoven on Matchday 1 of the 2018/19 competition was his eighth in the competition, a mark Ronaldo matched against Atlético de Madrid in that season's round of 16 second leg.

Oldest and youngest players
• Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete in the UEFA Champions League having featured against Real Madrid on Matchday 6 in 2007/08 aged 43 years 252 days. Alessandro Costacurta is the oldest outfield player; the Milan defender was 40 years and 211 days when he played against AEK Athens in 2006/07.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years 59 days, in Roma's 1-1 draw at CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Youssoufa Moukoko is the youngest player to have appeared, aged 16 years 18 days for Borussia Dortmund at Zenit on 8 December 2020. He replaced Celestine Babayaro, who was 16 years 87 days when he started for Anderlecht against Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994; Babayaro was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Ansu Fati's winner for Barcelona at Inter on Matchday 6 in 2019/20 made him the youngest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history, at the age of 17 years 40 days. He eclipsed the previous record of Olympiacos's Peter Ofori-Quaye (17 years 195 days) that had lasted since 1 October 1997.
