    Porto v Arsenal. 21/02/24. 20:00

    Itís been a long time since we were here and an even longer time since we actually won a CL knockout tie. 14 years to be exact, which also happened to be against Porto in 2010.

    No idea if Porto are any good or not but if we play like we have done in the CL so far Iím sure we should be able to get through unscathed.

    1-2.

    3-0 Francisco Evanilson de Lima Barbosa - aka Evanilson - hatter

    I've not seen them play, but UEFA ranked them as three places above us last year but we've come on since then so hopefully we have enough to do the job

    That was unnecessary


    Although on the other hand might start referring to our players by their full Portuguese names


    Gabriel Dos Santos Magalh„es

    Gabriel Teodoro Martinelli Silva

    Jorge Luiz Frello Filho

    Gabriel Fernando de Jesus

    Fabio Daniel Ferreira Vieira

    So same team as started against Burnley…on one hand I’m naturally concerned about the lack of rotation, on the other hand there is so natural replacements to come in with the exception of Jorginho for Havertz (I think we could be pushing our luck a bit not having more defensive cover in midfield)

    What I do note however is that Fabio Vieira makes the bench. I would be surprised if he’s not brought on at some point against his former club.
