    Is Olsen available for the game? I wouldn't mind seeing Mirante instead after the Chievo game.

    Lets hope not.


    I’m optimistic about this game and expecting a big win. I hope Dzeko has his scoring boots on.

    Karsdorp is out with a muscular problem, Florenzi will take his place.

    For fcuks sake... Honestly play Santon instead. Something is up with Florenzi these days, his confidence is totally shot.

    Karsdorp joins Schick with a muscle injury, fortunately neither is very important!

    Very disappointing that he's out for this. Was excited to see him get a real string of starts.

    A chance for Florenzi to redeem himself at RB now that everyone saw he has no business playing as a winger.

    Much more important the recovery of Manolas.

    No idea what to expect tonight.

    I might actually start Marcano if I were EDF.

    Is DDR gunna play?

    Porto are rightfully huge favourites tonight. A 0-0 would be a huge result. Considering our poor defence, that looks unlikely.

    Not like Nelly to discount our chances.

    I like @Salmeen10's positivity. Had a good feeling about this one myself yesterday. But that was yesterday ha. 2nd leg is likely gonna be tough so I think we'll need a big performance tonight and at least a win of some kind. Would personally prefer to see Nzonzi start over Cristante.

    7 Italians starting in a CL match. That's pretty cool to see.

    This is one of the stronger Porto sides of recent years. Stronger than the one that knocked us out a couple seasons ago, but thankfully they’re without their top scorer.

    Curious to see how EDF approaches the game. The predicted line up is a bit on the slow side and I’m not sure how well we’ll do on the counter.
