Portuguese giant’s, FC porto, stunned Italian Champions Juventus with a well deserved 2-1 win in Portugal.
Mehdi Tarem capitalized on Rodrigo Bentancur’s first minute back pass to give the home side a precious lead after only 62 second of play.
The first half was quite with Frenchman Adrien Rabiot’s acrobatic finish that was saved by Porto Goalkeeper, Agustin Marchisen, the only talking point.
Cameroon International Mousa Marega doubled the Portuguese side lead 19 second’s after the resumption of the second half.
The loss mounts more pressure on Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo, as it follows weekend’s defeat at the hands of Gennaro Gatusso’s Napoli.
Cristiano Ronaldo was peculiarly cold throughout the game, with Juventus’ precious away goal coming from Federico Chiesa, a goal that could prove vital when the two teams meat for the second leg.
This was FC Porto’s first ever win against Juventus in their history of Champions League. The second leg of the match will be played in Turin on 9th March 2021.
