Porto kicked off their UCL journey with a convincing 3-1 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk, marking a strong start for the Dragons.
The Portuguese side faced a slight setback over the weekend, succumbing to a close defeat against arch-rivals Benfica.
They’ll now need to be on guard against Barcelona, who notched a significant win against the Belgian outfit, Royal Antwerp, in their recent encounter.
Xavi Hernandez’s squad is set to visit Portugal, looking to continue their positive momentum from the season’s onset. The Blaugrana, flourishing in the Spanish La Liga, aim to mirror that success in the Champions League.
