Long balls ahead are not seen by Fazio and Manollas on the edge of the area. He is tipped to the top, the flag stays down and Adrian Lopez is doing well by dropping the ball, passing by Mirante with his right foot! Porto are back in it!
OBJECTIVE! Roma 2-1 Porto (Adrian Lopez, 79 min)
Porto is silent Olympic Stadium with what may be a decisive goal!
Just after Porto made an attack, Roma attacked again! This is again Dzko, moving in the middle and advancing to the area before letting him fly for 25 yards. The ball passes past Kasilias and repels the right post, but Porto is not lucky. Zaniolo's defense sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 20 minutes gone.
OBJECTIVE! Roma 2-0 Porto (Zanillo, 76 min)
The young man does it again!
74 minutes: Herrera is booked to catch De Rossi with a challenging challenge.
72 minutes: Porto almost immediately stepped in immediately, only for Adrian Lopez to face a Roma defender at close range!
This is a wonderful goal! The ball hit in the middle of El Shaarawy. Dozo collects with his back to the door, ignores the blow from Pepe (of course) and shuffles a pass right to Zanillo, who touches before he breaks a low blow alongside Cassylas and in the far corner! What a 19-year-old nerve.
OBJECTIVE! Roma 1-0 Porto (Zaniolo, 70 min)
The youth gives the Roma the lead from nowhere!
68 min: Brahimi was replaced by Adrian Lopez. He seems to twist his ankle after a foul by De Rossi, who came out for revenge after he was ashamed of a great skill by Brahimie earlier in the half.
67 minutes: Brahmi fell again. Conceicao's furious Roma continue to attack for a while. Again they were hot. Everybody relaxes after a while.
66 minutes: Cristante curled himself from the right and managed to get the ball back to Pellegrini, who straightened up straight into Casillas.
65 min: Brahmiy struggles and struggles. His night may be over.
62 minutes: Pellegrini tests Casillas with a 25-yard hard drive. Casillas deals with this.
57 min: Porto won a corner to the left, cunning Brahimmy won. Telles sends outcasts and Danilo looks just wide to the nearby post. This is the nearest Porto.
55 minutes: El Shaarawy blows miles of 25 yards. This is not good with the Roma.
51 min: The Roma are trying to push and play with more energy. Let's see how long it will last.
48 minutes: Roma's best hope might have been to make a mistake by Cassylas through the simple cross-boxing tactic. A little bit of a goal from the goalkeeper of Porto almost leads to a disaster, but the Christian can not take advantage.
Half way: Roma 0-0 Porto
Let's be charitable and call it a heavy game.
45 minutes: Pellegrini remains after a collision with Tikhino. The game stops so you can get treatment. He is well.
42 minutes: El Shaarawi almost crashes to the left. But he does not.
37 minutes: Fazio pulls Dzko with a great pass from the depth. The striker shines the ball down, crosses Militao, moves inside the area and looks safe to score a goal while pulling his right leg. But with the victory of Cassilyas, he hit a strong strike against the right side and the ball bounces safely! It was a wonderful game to the final.
35 minutes: Pellegrini sends another set, this time corner, but Jack over the head.
34 minutes: Free kick for Roma right. Pellegrini picked it up and Manolaz, who scored a winner against Barcelona last season, can not rise high enough in the middle. The defender was not tagged.
32 minutes: The Roma did not have a decent attack from the first 10 minutes. They look very one-dimensional.
30 minutes: Ottavio turns into the box on the right and finds Fernando, who turns and shoots directly at Mirante.
29 min: A little disagreement in the middle after Fernando discovers that El Shaarawi has a bite on the heel.
27 minutes: Kolarov crosses to the left. Casillas takes it unconvincingly. A few moments later Christians hit the strike directly at Cassylas in 18 yards.
25 min: Porto begins to dominate the possession. The Roma seem to have no ideas, though Jack has a chance to think of something.
22 minutes: Porto will be pleased with the way they started. Apart from a few taciturn moments in the back, they most often held the Roma at arm's length and seemed strong in the middle of the pitch. It would not be a surprise to see them snatch naked.
17 minutes: Porto attacks the left and raises the ball into the Roma zone. Protection is not great. Slight clearance is landing at the foot of Ottavio on the edge of the area, but he is not confident enough and the chance disappears.
14 minutes: Porto created a cautious way. You feel that the Roma can be disappointed here.
11 minutes: Porto makes a free-hit hash. The Roma are on time. Takeo runs to the left and folds a cross in the middle. Casillas dives again, but Brahmi does not call and approaches to clear it. For a moment, I thought this would be my own goal, but Brahaj would get away with him.
10 minutes: Fernando shakes to the left and wins a free kick from Florence. This is a good chance to load the Porto box.
7 minutes: El Shaaravi looks down again and combines with overlapping Kolarov, which is always an attack option. The left pushed a low ball into the six-yard box and almost found Dzeko, but Cassylas claimed the cross.
4 minutes: Porto tries to turn into Manchester City on the back just to make Felipe a complete mess. He loses from Pellegrini and then confuses the error with the weak challenge that allows the Roma to attack. El Shaarawy goes to the left, wobbles inside the area and tries to create Christian, who is right in time for Herrera. It was almost a disaster for Porto.
3 minutes: Quick start, very intense in the middle of the pitch. Everything seems quite even.
Peep! The Roma, in their red set, start the game. In the first half they are pushed from right to left. De Rossi immediately fired the ball forward and, well, went out to throw.
Before he starts, there will be a minute of silence to remember Emiliano Salah. In the middle of his break breaks respect, which is a nice touch.
The following Porto players miss the next game if booked: Eder Milliato, Ottavio and Pepe. Of course, Pepe. As for the Roma, they have no such concerns.
The teams are in the tunnel and the Roma fans make an absurd amount of noise at Stadio Olimpico. They know how to increase the sound of a great night out there. I was there when last season I defeated Barcelona and my ears just recovered.

Hello. The final stages of the Champions League: a funny place if you are not one of the super clubs. Shocks are rare in this competition and unpredictability is limited. If you do not have hundreds of millions to throw away every summer, you can probably forget about it. If you do not have elite players, history suggests that you can only go now.
But this is a knockout race, so it's never known, and both sides think they have a great chance to make the quarterfinals. After finishing second in the group, the Roma should be quite relieved if they have not landed one of your Barcelona or your Bayern München or your PSGS. After completing his top, Porto should be pleased to have avoided your Liverpool, your Atletico Madrid, your Manchester United. Tonight you have to play for Stadio Olimpico!
It is also very difficult to call. Trying to choose a favorite is not easy. Porto, at the top of the Portuguese League with a point unbeaten in October, will be happy to have a second home match and Sergio Concepcio will feel confident he has enough experience and firepower to reach the last eight. But while the Roma have a missing season at the local level, Eusebio Di Francesco's team is sixth in Serie A after inconsistent results and lost 7-1 against Fiorentina in the Italian Cup last month. last four last season and should be a step up in the class for Porto, who heads a group containing Galatasaray, Lokomotiv Moscow and Schalke. In conclusion: everything can happen. Which is exactly how it should be.
Start: 20:00 GMT, 21:00 in Rome.
