Football: FC Porto 0-1 Sevilla (Agg 2-2) UEFA Europa League 2011 Round of 32 2nd Leg (Porto win on Away Goals)

Porto have scraped through to the Round of 16 in the UEFA Europa League despite being beaten 1-0 at home to Sevilla.

Porto progress courtesy of the additional away goal scored in the opening leg of this tie.

Luis Fabiano scored on 71 minutes for Sevilla to tie the aggregate scoreline, at 2-2, and set up a grandstand finish, but FC Porto clung on to progress to the next phase by the narrowest of margins.

Porto perhaps deserved at least a draw from tonight’s match as they had more goalscoring opportunities though, when the final whistle blew, home fans knew just how close it had been.

Porto will face CSKA Moscow, who defeated PAOK Salonika yesterday evening, in the Round of 16 over two legs.
