FC Porto tied with Atlético de Madrid (0-0)

FC Porto drew goalless in the trip to Wanda Metropolitano to face Atlético de Madrid, in the first round of the Champions League.

In the first 20 minutes, Wanda Metropolitano spectators had only seen one dangerous move for each side.

Just before the clock struck half an hour, FC Porto had the best goal opportunity through Zaidu. In a quick counterattack, led by Luís Diáz, the forward made a sublime and wide pass to Zaidu, who was disarmed by Kondogbia, on the limit, inside the area. The VAR still analyzed the bid, but Ovidiu Hategan ordered it to continue.

The second half started with a great scoring opportunity for the visiting team. On 50 minutes, Otávio’s cross and shot almost surprised Oblak. The ball hit the post of the Slovenian goalkeeper, who already wore Benfica’s shirt, then Taremi failed to dominate and Oblak pulled it back.

Close to 70 minutes, Diogo Costa avoided the Madrid goal. Correa fired across and the white and blue keeper stretched out for a huge defense with his fingertips.

At 80 minutes, the controversial moment of the match, with a goal disallowed to FC Porto. In a bid dispute with Oblak, after a pass from Otávio, Taremi and Oblk collided and the ball went into the goal. The move was analyzed by the VAR because the referee considered that the Iranian striker had deflected the ball with his hand, causing it to go into the goal. The FC Porto player touched the ball with his right hand during the takedown, but it was an involuntary gesture.

The FC Porto team ended up being reduced to 10 units, due to the expulsion of Congolese Mbemba, after 90+5 minutes.
