POT vs ROM | FC Porto vs AS Roma | UEFA Champions League: Probable Lineups, Team News & Best Dream11 Combination

FC Porto vs AS Roma – In this article, I will be giving you the Probable Lineups, Team News & the Best Dream11 Combination of the UEFA Champions League match between FC Porto and AS Roma.


Important: Confirmed Lineups and revised Dream11 combination will be updated on this article 5-10 mins after the official final lineups are released (Between 12.30-12:45 AM tonight). An update will be posted on my Twitter handle to inform you all.


Confirmed Lineups (Updated):

FC Porto: Casillas; Militão, Felipe, Pepe, Alex Telles; Otávio, Danilo, Herrera; Corona, Marega, Soares.

AS Roma: Olsen; Juan Jesus, Manolas, Marcano; Karsdorp, Nzonzi, De Rossi, Kolarov; Zaniolo, Dzeko, Perotti.



Team News:

  • Big news for FC Porto as Moussa Marega is back for Porto.
  • Pastore and Cengiz Under are ruled out for Roma.
  • Roma press reporting that Marcano is expected to start ahead of Fazio.
  • Doubts about Florenzi-Karsdorp, Cristante-Nzonzi and Perotti-El Sharaawy.
  • Perotti’s presence at the pre-match press conference yesterday would suggest he will start tonight.


My Thoughts:

  • 3 out of Brahimi, Tiquinho, Corona and Marega will start for Porto tonight. All 4 are excellent options for Porto.
  • Moussa Marega is Porto’s top scorer in the Champions League this season with 5 goals. He missed the first leg due to injury.
  • Both Porto and Roma are coming into this match on the back of Derby defeats on the weekend against Lazio and Benfica.
  • Porto full-backs Alex Telles and Eder Militao are excellent options for your side.
  • Last time these two teams played at the Estadio Dragao, the match ended 1-1 in 2016.
  • Zaniolo, who scored twice in the first leg, is a slight injury doubt. He will most likely start, but might not last the entire match.
  • My Prediction: FC Porto 2-1 AS Roma. The match goes into Extra Time.
