The Nerazzurri come into the game having won the first leg 1-0 in fairly dramatic circumstances. The game looked set to end in a stalemate until Otavio was shown a red card with just over 10 minutes left to play. The onus was on Inter to attack and grab at least one goal to take to Portugal and it was Romelu Lukaku who netted with a few minutes to play.
Simone Inzaghi’s side know they have a superb chance to join AC Milan in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, something that will be of immense importance to the club in a financial sense.
Porto vs Inter: Predicted line-ups
Porto are of course without Otavio as he is suspended following his red card at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza which means Sergio Conceicao could look to either Andro Franco or Stephen Estaquio.
Galeno returned to the squad recently but Evanilson is expected to still be out with an injury. Mehdi Taremi and Mateus Uribe were benched at the weekend so they are fresh to face Inter.
The main decision that Simone Inzaghi needs to make is whether he will partner Lautaro Martinez with Edin Dzeko or Romelu Lukaku. Joaquin Correa is an option after returning to training but Milan Skriniar is not expected to recover in time.
Porto predicted XI vs Inter (4-2-3-1): Costa; Mario, Pepe, Cardoso, Sanusi; Grujic, Uribe; Franco, Pepe, Galeno; Taremi.
Inter predicted XI vs Porto (3-5-2): Onana; De Vrij, Acerbi, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Martinez, Dzeko
