Juventus capitalised on Alex Telles’s rash red card by taking a decisive step towards the last eight thanks to late goals from Marko Pjaca and Dani Alves
Well, this tie is probably over. Porto have a huge mountain to climb after this defeat and they’re likely to find the task insurmountable in Turin on 14 March. The game was defined by Alex Telles’s brain fart in the first half, the Porto left-back letting himself down and dropping his team-mates in it with that preposterous red card. Two identical bookings in the space of 74 seconds, for crying out loud! I mean really. Porto held out bravely for as long as possible, but they cracked in the end and Max Allegri’s substitutions made the difference, goals from Marko Pjaca and Dani Alves meaning that Juventus head back to Italy with a commanding 2-0 lead. They’ve got one foot in the last eight and it will take something special from Porto to stop them getting there. That’s all from me for now. Thanks for reading. Good night.
Peep! Peep! Peep! That’s it!
