Sergio Oliveira scored in extra time to send 10-man Porto into the quarter-finals of the Champions League despite a thrilling 3-2 loss at Juventus.
Porto, who played much of Tueday’s second leg at a numerical disadvantage after Mehdi Taremi’s red card in the 54th minute, progressed on away goals after the tie ended 4-4 on aggregate.

Oliveira also netted Porto’s first goal, from the penalty spot, but Federico Chiesa scored twice in the second half to level things up for Juventus and send the match into extra time.
Porto appeared to have all but won it after Oliveira’s late strike but Adrien Rabiot reduced the deficit three minutes from time to set up a tense finale.
In the day’s other game, Erling Haaland struck once in each half to send Borussia Dortmund into the quarter-finals as they drew 2-2 with Sevilla for a 5-4 aggregate victory.

The Norwegian notched his 20th Champions League goal in 14 games – and 10th in the competition this season – with a controversial 54th-minute penalty in the last-16 tie after having tapped in a Marco Reus cutback against the run of play to give Dortmund the lead in the first half.
Sevilla, who made the quarter-finals in 2018 and enjoyed a strong first half, hit back with two goals from Youssef En-Nesyri, the first a 66th-minute penalty followed by a stoppage-time header to make it t 2-2.
Haaland, 20, has now become the all-time top Norwegian scorer in the competition, with one more goal than current Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as Dortmund reached the last eight for the first time since 2017.
Haaland’s penalty, awarded following a lengthy VAR review for an earlier challenge after he had put the ball in the net, was initially saved before he retook it and scored.
