FC Porto vs Internazionale

INTER MILAN left it late to grab their winner against 10-man FC Porto in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash and it promises to be another tense 90 minutes back at the Estadio do Dragao.

Our man Mark backed the Serie A giants to edge a tight game at the San Siro and that's exactly how it panned out as Romelu Lukaku scored the only goal just four minutes from time.

Porto were a man down by that stage, with Otavio picking up a second yellow, and the Portuguese side will be frustrated they didn't manage to hold out for a draw.

A one-nil deficit is far from the worst result to take back to Portugal, however, and they will fancy their chances of turning things around having won 12 of their 15 home games this term.

Both teams haven't been in great form since the first leg, with Porto losing one of their three games to Gil Vicente and Internazionale crashing against Bologna and Spezia.

That suggest their focus is on this Euro return, especially with Benfica and Napoli looking out of sight at the top of their respective domestic leagues.

This tie is on a knife-edge and we could even see extra-time and penalties with these teams pretty evenly matched.
