on Rome He prevailed over Porto to return a duel to eighth final on Champions League. At the Olympic stadium in Rome, the local team won 2-1.
Despite the irregular presence in Serie A, where he is in sixth position, the Italian team of the capital showed superiority over his rival and could hold the first clash between the two.
The first time they failed to catch up, those led by Eusebio Di Francesco had a clear situation, but goalkeeper Iker Casillas finished with a huge title of Edin Dzeko.
Already in the set that first set the opponent's arc was the Portuguese team after a headliner from Danilo, which was barely wide-ranging from Antonio Mirante's left post.
Minutes later, the Spanish goalkeeper again rescued his team after being shot by Lorenzo Pellegrini inside but without much direction.
On the 25th minute, Dęko lowered the center to the left in the area and allowed Nikolo Zaniolo to put the right side 1-0 for the homeowners.
The Roma, far from the satisfaction of the advantage, pushed the accelerator further and five minutes later extended the advantage. Again, Zaniolo won in favor of his team after jumping into the woods at an average distance from Jacob.
The visit came at a discount thanks to the volition of Adrian Lopez, who rebuilt the hopes of the Portuguese.
Captain Hector Herrera had a tie, but his shot went past the left side of the Roma.
With this result, Porto's first defeat against the Roma was produced because in the four previous confrontations the Portuguese club has never lost to the Italian.
That way, Rome starts again with its right foot for the second consecutive time in Champions League qualifiers, where last year made a great trip – eliminating Barcelona in a quarter – until it fell with Liverpool in the semifinals.
On the other hand, Portugal will try to turn the series into Lisbon and will thus be able to go into the quarterfinals that have not been given in the last two years.
