Everything was much more balanced between Porto and Inter. Lautaro Martínez played the entire game for the Italian team, but had to dedicate himself more to defensive tasks, pressing the exit of the rivals, than to develop his trade as a scorer. Inter deployed a very cautious scheme and dedicated himself to taking care of the goal difference against Porto’s will and few ideas.

The great emotions of the night at the Do Dragao stadium came in extra time. The Dutchman Dumfries took a shot from the Spanish Iván Marcano on the line and then in the same play, a header from the Iranian Taremi hit the right post and another header from the Serbian Marko Grujic crashed into the crossbar. Inter thus celebrated a hard-fought classification that puts it in the same line as Milan, its traditional rival, also placed in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
