Team News: Porto vs Lazio

FC Porto:

The Portuguese side is in rampant form in Primeira Liga as they are sitting at the top of the table. However, in their European endeavor, FC Porto had it rough. This is Porto's 5th consecutive qualification in the Champions League group stage which they have failed to cross. Just like last season but in a different group. Porto ended up with just five points in a challenging Group B.

Even though Porto had one of the chances to qualify, they let it slip past as Atletico Madrid pushed them to the Europa League after a 3-1 win. Sergio Conceicao's side will have to perform just like their domestic campaign to get something out of this fixture.

Suspensions:

Wendell is out of this competition following a straight red card during their UCL clash with Atletico Madrid.

Injuries/doubtful: 

Agustin Marchesin is set to miss out on the fixture following an injury.

Comebacks:

Porto has all of its players available for selection.

SS Lazio: 

On the other hand, Lazio has a great reputation in this competition as they appear for the 9th consecutive season. This time Maurizio Sarri is leading the team into this competition. However, their run in the group stages was not something brilliant as they finished second behind Galatasaray with 9 points. 

However, in domestic competition this season Lazio is doing quite well. As they are currently sitting at 6th with 42 points and are 13 points off the top spot. The Roman side always poses an offensive threat, but given their newfound defensive solidity, they will hope this new form can carry them past Porto and into the last-16 draw.

Suspensions:

No one is suspended for the upcoming fixture.

Injuries/Doubtful:

Francesco Acerbi and Manuel Lazzarri are out due to their injuries.

Comebacks:

All players are available for selection in the upcoming fixture against FC Porto.
