Champions League: FC Porto Knock Out Juventus! Quarter-Final Draw is March 19

FC Porto progressed from an exciting Champions League match via away goals (4-4 on aggregate) against Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The second leg match featured a red card and five goals scored. A brace from Sergio Oliveira clinched it.

After losing the first leg 2-1, Juventus got off to a poor start tonight as Porto’s Sergio Oliveira opened the scoring on 19 minutes from the penalty spot after Demiral’s foul on Marega.

Juve looked to pull themselves level after Alvaro Morata was put through on goal in the 30th minute but the striker was denied by Marchesin.

Juve got their reward four minutes after the halftime break when Ronaldo turned provider to pick out Chiesa, who sent a curling effort into the top corner.

Things turned sour for Porto on 54 minutes when Taremi was sent off after picking up two yellow cards in quick succession, before Chiesa leveled on aggregate by making it 2-1 on the night in the 65th minute.

Juve nearly had the third goal but Chiesa cracked the crossbar before Cuadrado saw his strike hit off the woodwork in stoppage time, sending the game to extra-time.

Porto got the next goal on 115 minutes when Oliveira again found the back of the net with a free-kick that entered despite Wojciech Szczesny getting a hand on the shot.

The draw for the quarterfinal is scheduled for Friday, March 19.
