Let's not underestimate Porto. They have been a pretty consistent side in Europe, they also have a good record vs Italian teams in the recent seasons. They eliminated Juve in UCL round of 16, beat Milan in the group stage last season, eliminated Lazio in Europa League last season, also beat Roma in the UCL playoffs.

Chelsea and tottenham? :ROFLMAO: I called it. Tottenham has Son and Kane who will have no problem dismantling out defense, plus i cant imagine what our best player last season would do to Dumfries, it won't be pretty. I don't even have to say what Chelsea will do to us. Porto and Benfica were the best opponents for us and glad we got one of them

For once we got lucky! LEGGOOOOO!

Just secure the top 4, but we need to focus on CL 100%. There's money to be made, we need at least QF stage now and why not more. Anything can happen with the draws, injuries etc.
Yep. We "should" beat Porto (it's 50-50 probably which is good). And then it's time to beat one giant in a serious match like that would be.

I want that semi-final this year and then it's open for everyone.

Different squads, Porto squad nowadays lacks depth and criativity up front, selling Diaz, Vitinha and Fábio Vieira in just 6 months was terrible for the attack.
The full backs are horrible, Pepê who´s one of our best creative players has to play at RB in tough matches cause the RB is so incompetent.

Mbemba also left for free this summer so the board decided to splash 20M for a promising Portuguese CB from Braga, David Carmo, also cause Pepe isn´t getting any younger. The dude looking absolute garbage atm playing in a system that only uses 2 CB instead of the 3 like he played for Braga. Slow af doing stupid tackles, he was even benched by Ivan fuckin Marcano the last game.

Now our best players are Diogo Costa a fantastic young GK, Otávio, Uribe but he doesn´t give a fuck this season cause he´ll leave for free this summer, Pepê, when we don´t have to play him as RB, and Taremi. The rest of the team is average or incompetent.

People think it would've been so good to play Tottenham or Chelsea smh

Start with the very fact that EVERY English club has unlimited funds every window and will improve in January to be better no matter how shit their form is now. Spurs, Chelsea > Porto. Let's not even talk about Real, Man City who are so harder to play than Porto it's not funny.

It's one of the best draws possible if not the best period. I'm not saying we'll 100% progress but if there ever was a chance this is it for Inter. It's on Inzaghi and the players to deliver.

This, we are the favorite against them whether this forum likes it or not. Against Chelsea and Tottenham we aren't.

It's confirmed that it's Porto, right?
They didn't do the draw again or something? :lol:


Gimme Milan in the quarters. And hopefully Benfica vs Brugge winner plays Frankfurt vs Napoli winner and we face them in the semi. We need a deep run here.

But we're extremely capable of fucking it up vs Porto.

Is there a tournament grid? To see which pair winner we get after Porto?

We could not even beat Juventus last night. With this draw, we at least have a chance to go through if we play well to our potential.

Would have hated to get the likes of Man City, R. Madrid but I am quite happy with this draw.

Sounds about right. It's really close to 50-50 to me.

Thanks for the details. Taremi my boy :)

I don't watch Primeira Liga that often, the last one was Porto vs Benfica (I think), but you looked like a dominating side before Eustaquio was sent off.
