Juventus will face Porto in the first leg of the last 16 of the Champions League. They played against Olympique Lyonnais at this stage last season, but were eventually eliminated. The draw that Juventus seemed to win easily.

"

It's not that we weren't concentrated against Lyon, and we probably didn't deserve to lose. The details make the difference at this level and we are ready to fight it out with Porto

," Paratici told Sky Sport Italia.

Juventus went out on away goals, having lost 1-0 in Lyon and won 2-1 in Turin.

Bonucci and Dybala are on the bench; however, coach Andrea Pirlo confirmed that they are not ready to play.

"It has been an unlucky season, Dybala scored almost 100 years for Juve, so of course he is a very important player for us. He's in the squad, although not at his best, but we have many games left this season and he can still make a crucial contribution."

"Fitness problems are to be expected, as it is out 14th game in I think 43 days, so naturally knocks or muscular issues can lead to players having to pull out. It's basically like playing half a season in a month-and-a-half."
