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.
On an individual level, António Areia was FC Porto’s top scorer, with 6 goals, while on the other side the highlights were Diego Simonet and Karl Wallinius, both with 5.
