Porto Win🎉 UEFA Youth League🏆
Porto have won the UEFA Youth League, consigning Chelsea to their second straight defeat at the final hurdle, by winning the final 3-1.
An exciting match, played at Centre Sportif de Conorvay in Nyon, Switzerland, saw the Portuguese side fully deserve their victory
The Londoners had pegged their opponents back after Porto took an early lead, but Mario Silva’s team pulled away in the second half.
The Portuguese club took the lead soon after when Fabio Vieira swept home at the back post after excellent work by Mor Ndiaye on the right wing in the 17th minute.
After 53 minutes, Deishawn Redan nodded home from a Juan Familio-Costa cross to restore parity for the Blues.
Porto saw a Diogo Leite header saved at point-blank range by Ziger but retook the lead immediately through a fortunate Diogo Quieros goal just a minute after Redan’s equaliser. The Porto captain deflected home after Ziger could only parry Vieira’s shot.
Porto scored a third going into the game’s final fifteen minutes. Ziger was only able to divert Alfonso Sousa’s shot onto the post and into the net after Sousa was set up by a cute backheel from Romario Baro.
