Porto sentences Milan

Porto sentences Milan

Porto today signed its first victory in the Champions League after beating Milan 1-0 with a goal from Colombian Luis Díaz and leaves the Italians sentenced, who have not yet scored after the first three games.

A very serious game for Porto that helps them to place third with 4 points, the same as Atlético de Madrid, which today fell to Liverpool (2-3) that, after three victories, leads Group B with 9 points.

Porto, with the Spanish Marcano and Toni Martínez as substitutes, came out much more plugged than the Italians from Milan, with Ibrahimovic on the bench

In the first half hour, only Iranian center forward Mehdi Taremi had four chances to score, whose shots missed the goal, despite the clear position to score.

The first clear for “the dragons”, who could only win to qualify for the first two places, came in minute 4. Good internship for Colombian Luis Díaz who went to the center to shoot from outside the area and the ball crashed in the base of the post.

For its part, Milan only intimidated Conceiçao’s team with some counter on the left initiated by Portuguese Rafael Leao, formed in the quarry of Porto’s rival, Sporting de Portugal.

Porto felt comfortable recovering the ball with high pressure, with Pepe and Mbemba very safe behind, although they needed to build more fluidly.

A match that left samples of the intensity of both teams since in the first half hour the German Felix Brych had shown three yellow cards, all for hard innings.

It was not, until now, the night of Taremi, who in 36 was only inside the area with a defender and his shot went to the body of the center-back, despite the fact that he had a good shot option.

At the end of the break, a new arrival for Porto and a shot from the Brazilian Otávio that crashed into the area in the body of the Bosnian Krunic.

The Portuguese, who have a point after drawing in the first game against Atlético de Madrid, went to the dressing room tunnel with the feeling of having forgiven and Milan, who have not yet scored, were still alive.

On the Porto bench, the Mexican Corona or the young Portuguese Fábio Vieira, while on the Milan bench the figures of Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Daniel Maldini, son of Paolo, stood out on the bench.

The second half started the same as the first, Porto dominating and drowning Milan’s leadership.

Again, the fifth time that Iranian Taremi had failed. He recovered a ball on the right in minute 47, Evanilson took the center back and the Persian forward advanced until he had a clear shot option, although the left-handed shot went wide.

Another clear came in 50 for Porto. Throw-in, Tomori mismeasures the cut and Otávio reached the half moon alone. The shot was cut off by the Italian defense.

Milan was touched and in 58 Stefano Pioli opted for a triple change to give entry to Ibrahimovic, French Pierre Kalulu and Alessio Romagnoli.

In ’65, a turning point in the encounter with the goal that, finally, came in favor of Porto.

Good play on the right of side Joao Mário, center and the ball that stayed on the edge of the area for the Colombian Luis Díaz to finish off placed at the long post.

In 86, Ibrahimovic, without physical tone, was able to leave the meeting with an ugly entry to Mbemba, since he put the studs on his head and the referee showed him yellow.
