Inter have drawn Porto as their opponents for the Champions League round of sixteen.

There may be some feelings of relief at having avoided such heavy-hitters as Manchester City and Real Madrid, but the Nerazzurri won’t be considering this an easy tie at all.

The Portuguese champions did well to top their group and will be formidable opposition across two legs of knockout action.

As football statistics account Opta highlighted in a tweet, the Nerazzurri have never lost to this opposition in a European match at home.

Opta’s tweet reads, “3 – Inter have remained unbeaten in three of the four matches against Porto in European competitions (W2 D1), winning the two at San Siro: the Round of 16 of the 2004/05 #ChampionsLeague and in the group stage of the 2005/06 Champions League. Wait.”
