The struggles for Italian side AS Roma have continued in the 2018/2019 domestic season, with only two wins in their last five matches, per Soccerway -- including a 7-1 drubbing at the hands of Fiorentina in an Italian Cup match just two weeks ago. But they squeaked through the UEFA Champions League group stage with a 3-3 record, entitling them to open the knockout round against an often overlooked but extremely dangerous opponent in the Portuguese leaders and defending champions, FC Porto. They will engage in a Round of 16 first-leg showdown that will stream live from the Italian capital city.

With former Real Madrid great Iker Casillas minding the net, Porto have maintained a solid defensive bulwark all season in their domestic league, allowing just 12 goals in 21 league games, per the BBC. They have, however, allowed six goals through their six Champions League games — but also lead their league with an average of 15 interceptions per match.
