Porto Makes It To Champions League Quarter Final

March 8, 2019 by

Alex Telles scored a penalty during extra time following a VAR review that allowed his team of Porto to advance to the quarterfinals of the Champions League after beating Roma. Alessandro Florenzi was penalised after pulling Fernando back when the balls was fizzed over the goal for the 116th minute, while Telles converted from the sport.

Porto player Moussa Marega managed to take the game into extra time after he got on the end of a curling cross from Jesus Corona. Captain of Roma, Daniele de Rossi had cancelled out an opener from Francisco Soares earlier into the match for Porto as the game was only still in the first half. It’s marked as the first time that the Portuguese club have advanced tot he quarter finals since the 2014-15 season.

Nicolo Zaniolo, who is 19 years old, became the youngest Italian to score twice during a Champions League game; putting his team Roma in control of the tie thanks a 2-1 win for the first leg. But Porto were not going to go down without a fight, and they were the strong team for many parts of the match during their return leg in Portugal. Corona set the stage with his half volley, which flew over the bar at minute four, while Telles put on a powerful effort into side netting just a few moments later. With Roma now hanging by a threat, their latest defeat could cost them dearly this season.
