Even though they had to be a guest of Barcelona, Porto still entered the game with great confidence and created a fierce duel with the defending champion La Liga. In the first half of the first half, both teams had consecutive opportunities to score goals but were unable to take advantage of them.


Pepe ran onto the kick accurately


The turning point occurred in the 30th minute, when Porto broke the deadlock in the match. Goalkeeper Pena successfully blocked Galeno’s shot but watched helplessly as Pepe accurately scored the kick.

The away team’s joy only lasted 2 minutes. From the left wing, Cancelo dribbled past a Porto defender and fired a dangerous shot to help Barcelona equalize.


Continuing the momentum, in the 57th minute, coach Xavi and his team took a 2-1 lead. After scoring the equalizer, Cancelo continued to make his mark by assisting Joao Felix to score.

In the remaining time, Porto was powerless to find a way into Barca’s goal and accepted a 1-2 defeat. With this result, Xavi and his team officially won tickets to continue one match early (12 points/5 matches) and ranked first in Group H.

Barca is determined to take advantage of the opportunity to play at the Olympic home stadium to defeat Porto, thereby winning a place in the next round of the Champions League. It must be emphasized that coach Xavi’s team has recently played quite well at their home base. In the past 10 times they have welcomed opponents, they won 9 matches and only had to suffer 1 defeat against rival Real Madrid in the El Clasico match in round 11 of La Liga.



However, Porto is not an opponent that is easily bullied. The Portuguese team is in impressive form. They won 8 of the last 9 matches in all competitions. In particular, in the last 2 matches in the Champions League, they both won and scored a total of 6 goals. Being equal on points with Barca and will win the ticket to the next round if they win at the Olympic Stadium, coach Sergio Conceicao’s students have even more reason to try their best to play this match.
