It's now 20 years since Porto lifted the Champions League trophy under José Mourinho's management, and while the Portuguese side have failed to replicate that success ever since, they're still capable of holding their own against the best in Europe. The only games they lost in the group stage were against table-toppers Barcelona, who only finished ahead of Sérgio Conceição's side on goal difference.

Arsenal stormed through Group B to set up this two-legged knockout tie, finishing four points clear of second-placed PSV. The Gunners haven't gone beyond the last 16 of the Champions League since they reached the quarter-finals under Arsène Wenger in 2010. The team they beat to reach that stage? FC Porto, with a 6-2 aggregate win after going down 2-1 away from home.

Here's how the teams line up:

Porto XI: Costa (GK); Sanusi, Ataide, Pepe, Joao Mario; Galeno, Gonzalez, Pepe, Varela, Conceicao; Evanilson.

Arsenal XI: Raya (GK); White, Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior; Rice, Odegaard, Havertz; Martinelli, Saka, Trossard.
