FC Porto draw at home with Montpellier and continue in the fight for the “quarters” of the Champions League

Tied at 29 leaves good prospects for second leg

FC Porto drew this Thursday with the French team of Montpellier HB, 29 goals, in a match evoking the first leg of the qualifiers for the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Present in this round in a historic way, the Dragons faced 4th place in the French championship and, despite the equality at home, showed arguments for, within a week, to discuss qualification on French soil. In a match where they were trailing by only 1 goal at half-time, the blues and whites were 4 behind the Gauls, but a decisive reaction in the second half allowed them to return to equality. The outcome could even have been different, with the victory of the French, but Sebastian Frandsen was a hero, when he blocked a free kick from 7 meters just 3 seconds from the end of the match.
