Porto vs Bayern Munich Match Review and Highlights
Although Bayern Munich has started the match with their best eleven, yet they could not block Porto to score two goals in the first half. Although, Bayern came back after a little time, but, by then, Porto scored two goals. Quaresma, who scored the first goal in a penalty, which was made due to Manuel Neuer’s wrong tackle, scored the second fantastic goal just after 7 minutes.
That means, within 10 minuets Porto scored two most important goals against a team like Bayern Munich. Although, Thiago Alcantara scored one goal, yet, Bayern failed to score the equalizer goal in the first half. Some of the Bayern players such as Boateng, Philipp Lahm, Muller, Gotze etc. and Quaresma, Sandro on the Porto side have played well in the first half.
But the aggressive playing and rude tackle yielded some yellow cards and the holders are Manuel Neuer, Juan Bernat, Casemiro, Alex Sandro and Philipp Lahm. Out of those cards, the Manuel Neuer’s card was the most deleterious card for Bayern Munich.
