Champions' League, semi-final second leg

Deportivo La Coruña 0 - Porto 1

Deportivo La Coruña are out of the Champions' League after losing at home to Porto. Irureta's side were favourites to go through after a 0-0 draw in the first leg, but they were outplayed for much of the match by a well organised opponent. Things could have been different if Valerón had not missed the easiest of chances shortly before half time, but Porto could have taken the lead themselves when Derlei headed against the post immediately after the restart. The only goal came on the hour mark when César brought down Deco just inside the area, Derlei converting the resulting penalty, and when Naybet was sent off for a second bookable offence ten minutes later it was all over.
