THAT’S ALL FROM TURIN

Ten-man Porto beat the odds against Juventus and went through to the Champions League quarter-finals after a dramatic encounter that went to extra time.

The visitors opened the scoring with Sergio Oliveira’s penalty after 19 minutes and went back to the dressing room with an important 3-1 lead on aggregate.

However, Juve came back stronger and equalised with Federico Chiesa’s beautiful curling shot from a tight angle down the left flank on 49 minutes.

Porto tried to react but lost Mehdi Taremi to a second yellow card just five minutes later after the striker booted the ball away in anger.

The visitors were unable to produce after Taremi’s dismissal and so Chiesa gave Juventus the lead after 63 minutes thanks to a beautiful header.

The match went to extra-time and the Bianconeri continued to hammer the depleted Dragons.

However, Oliveira got a second goal on 115 minutes following a clever free-kick from 20-odd yards that he delivered under Juventus’ awful wall and buried behind Wojciech Szczesny’s bottom right corner.

Adrien Rabiot responded with a header that went past Agustin Marchesin just two minutes later but Porto held on to a 4-4 aggregate that saw them going through on away goals and eliminating Juventus as well as Cristiano Ronaldo.

That’s all from us here at SunSport, have a lovely night!
