FC Porto Defeats Juventus to reach UCL Quarter-Final

Porto advanced to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League despite suffering a 3-2 defeat in extra time to Juventus on Tuesday at Juventus Stadium in Turin, Italy.

The Portuguese giants move on by a 4-4 aggregate scoreline thanks to the away goals rule after having won 2-1 in the first leg.

Sergio Oliveira delivered the decisive blow on a free kick in the 115th minute. His long-range effort tucked narrowly inside the post and past a diving Wojciech Szczesny.

Adrien Rabiot got one back for the hosts two minutes later to add even more drama. Juventus’ comeback attempt ran out of steam, though. A brace from Federico Chiesa wasn’t enough.

Porto appeared to put one foot in the quarterfinals thanks to a 19th-minute goal by Oliveira from the penalty spot. The contact between Merih Demiral and Mehdi Taremi was minimal but enough for the referee to point to the spot.
