Porto secured an impressive 3-1 home win in the Champions League quarterfinal first leg against German giants Bayern Munich, and are now 90 minutes away from advancing to the semis for the first time since a certain Jose Mourinho led them to the title.

Bayern were without a host of key players for that match, and will still miss Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery for this match. Does its available squad have enough overturn the deficit?
