The football match between Porto and Inter saw Porto hoping to come back from a one-goal deficit and knock out the Italian team, drawing on their history of beating Juventus in 2021.
However, despite having top attacking talent, Inter failed to trouble the hosts, and the whole squad seemed a step behind. Porto attempted to capitalize on their sluggish start, but Evanilson and Stephen Eustáquio failed to score.
In the second half, Nicolo Barella attempted to increase Inter’s efforts, but he didn’t receive enough support from his teammates.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan also missed a shot. On the other end, Porto threw everything they had against a resilient Inter defense that held strong until the end.
Despite several missed opportunities from Porto, Inter survived the late drama and made it to the quarter-finals by a slim margin.
