Paulo Dybala: Juventus are in elite company

Paulo Dybala converted the penalty three minutes before the break to complete a 3-0 aggregate win for the Serie A side after Porto defender Maximiliano Pereira blocked Gonzalo Higuain's goalbound shot with his arm and was sent off.

The Portuguese league leaders will have to claw their way back from a 2-0 home defeat in the first leg, something which has never been done in the knockout stage since Europe's top club competition was reformed in 1992.

The first leg which was played in Portugal saw Juventus win the game by a 2-0 score as Allegri's men are practically qualified for the quarter-finals. Giorgio Chiellini, however, was only deemed fit enough for the bench due to a muscular problem.

Porto finished the first leg with 10 men after Alex Telles was sent off.

Twice Juventus had opportunities to make the breakthrough in the opening three minutes, but Higuain headed wide of the post from outside the Porto box, before Dybala fired over the crossbar from close range after breaking through.

The game also will pit two goalkeeping legends against one another in Juventus' Gigi Buffon and Porto's Iker Casillas.

Despite Juventus' two away goals, Porto will look to start the game on the front foot.

The resulting red card for Pereira and penalty kick slotted home by Dybala pretty much ended things in the first half, and it was just a matter of Juventus holding firm from there.

Soares had a gilt-edged opportunity to reduce the deficit seconds later, shaking off Dani Alves and going one-on-one with Buffon, but he opened his body and side-footed the shot across the face of goal and wide of the far post.
