It cost, but it was. With a performance below expectations, FC Porto won (3-2) against Feyenoord for the last matchday of the Europa League group stage and sealed the qualification for the round of 32. The Dragons also secured the lead in Group G, also due to the 1-1 draw by Rangers with Young Boys.
To achieve the victory, Sérgio Conceição’s side benefited – and in what way – from the defensive performance of the Dutch team, especially goalkeeper Nick Marsman, who signed a very poor performance at Dragão.
On the blues side, despite the victory, the poor performance of almost all FC Porto players, who played a weak and uninspired game, especially in offensive terms, remained in the retina.
It is appropriate to say that the result was better than the display. After all, as a result of this triumph, the dragons took first place in the group, something that seemed unthinkable a few weeks ago.
