Half-Time FC Porto 2-0 Atletico Madrid. It was a truly impressive half from the hosts, who were applauded off. As it stands Porto sit top of the group with Atletico bottom, as Leverkusen and Club brugge are currently drawing 0-0. Los Rojiblancos need to be far more creative in the second half if they are to save their European campaign.

57′ Atletico Madrid have NEVER finished 4th in the Champions League group stage, but the Spanish side need to improve quickly to avoid that changing tonight.
59′ Joao Felix cuts inside from the left and hits an ambitious shot, but Costa collects the ball comfortably.
65′ Chance for Porto as Cardoso meets a corner, but can only put the ball in the side netting.
67′ The referee is in danger of losing control of the game here. A superb finish from Griezmann is disallowed due to the referee having already blown for a foul that saw Rodrigo de Paul booked. Suprisingly noone is booked due to the quarrel after this decision. Var rules in favour of the referees decision.
74′ Another impressive save by Oblak. Evanilson is played through, hits the ball low and hard toward the near post, but Oblak does well to get down and parry the ball wide.
75′ Yannick Carrasco has a chance but Costa denies him with yet another impressive save. This has been a night of great goalkeeping from both sides. The goal wouldn’t have counted anyway as Carrasco is ruled to be offside.
81′ Porto Substitution Toni Martinez Comes on for Evanilson.
82′ Porto are denied a third goal yet again. Oblak makes a double save to deny Teremi and Wendell.
85′ Pablo Barrios replaces Angel Correa to make his Champions league debut. Is this a sign Diego Simeone has given up on this game?
87′ Possibly the best chance for Atletico tonight, Griezmann is left unmarked but rolls the ball wide with his week foot.
88′ Rodrigo Conceicao, Bernardo Folha, and Goncalo Borges come on to replace Otavio, Galeno, and Pepe Aquino.
90′ The fourth official indicates Atletico have 5 minutes to save their European campaign.
90+1′ Atletico are still fighting, with Carrasco denied by Costa.
90+2 Full time in Germany, Bayer Leverkusen Club brugge ends 0-0, meaning unless theres any late drama, Porto will win the group anbd Atletico will finish bottom.
90+4 GOAL Porto 2-1 Atletico. Fabio Cardoso puts the ball into his own net, can Atletico pull of the seemingly impossible?
Full-Time Porto 2-1 Atletico. A truly dominating performance from Porto sees the Portuguese side enter the Champions League round of 16 as group winners for the first time in four years. Atletico Madrid’s European effort comes to an end this season, after yet another disappointing performance. This result, combined with Atletico sitting 9 points behind La Liga leaders and local rivals Real Madrid, could see an end to Diego Simeones 11 year reign at the club.
