Lovely place to visit. Easy peasy transport from airport to stadium. Highly acceptable wine. Crap weather in that part of Portugal in February, but that might serve us, playing in crap weather all year anyway.
I will stand by my original thought. When we play those "weaker" teams in the knockout stages, we think we've won before stepping out onto the field, whereas they are more determined than ever to prove us wrong. Juventus, especially in Europe, is in a period of semi-crisis. They only secured second in the last game and whenever I did watch them against anyone stronger, they were awful.
I would love to get them. It would up our game big time.
The Ukrainians are TOUGH, Sevilla keep playing for their ill manager and I reckon they will sooner leave their lungs on the grass than give a lackluster performance. Basel are a banana skin and are always up for it.
Juve might underestimate us and our high-pressing style is something they will have a hard time coping with (as against Barca when they went into 5th gear). Juve is a shadow of its former self, and their league position in one of the crappest leagues in Europe is nothing to go by.
