Porto vs AC Milan Team News

Team News: Porto

Sergio Conceicao's side had a tough goalless draw against Atletico Madrid and then followed by a 5-1 thrashing by Liverpool which will impact the team's condition in the upcoming match. Porto has been on a good run in their domestic season winning 6 out of their opening 8 matches and is in great form. Porto's most recent result was a 5-0 win in the cup, although against lesser opposition and they sit at 2nd spot in Premier Liga. This surely will keep the team motivated for the upcoming match. Players to look out for like Sergio Oliviera, Mehdi Taremi, Luiz Diaz and Toni Martinez with Pepe are mostly likely to start as these players will be in good form due to their involvement in their recent matches. So make sure to look out for them while building up your Dream11 team.

Suspension:

Porto will have their full team back for this match without anyone sitting out due to cards, which surely has a positive impact on the team.

Injuries:

Chancel Mbemba is expected to miss out, but he is the only known absentee for the Portuguese giants.

Comebacks:

Otavio is available for selection after appearing in their last game on Friday in the cup game after he got subbed off against Liverpool FC. Therefore keep an eye on your Dream11 team prediction according to that.

Team News: AC Milan

Stefano Pioli's side is not having a good run in this Group B. They have faced Atletico Madrid and Liverpool and unfortunately, the results were not in their favor. They suffered a 3-2 defeat against Liverpool followed by a 2-1 conquer by Atletico Madrid. Therefore these recent conditions will put a crack on their confidence for the upcoming match. However, AC Milan is having a great treat in their domestic season where they sit comfortably at 2nd place with playing 8 games and winning 7 of them. Their recent wins in the league should act as a booster over their lack of performance in the UCL and surely will step up their game against Porto. Players like Giroud, Ibrahimovic, Rafael Leao, and Rade Krunic and expected starters like Ciprian Tatarusanu in goal and Pierre Kalulu or Ballo-Touré in defense. Make sure to consider them for your Dream11.
