With the second half finish of Luis Diaz, Porto won his first Champions League victory of the season. They beat Milan 1-0 and kept staring at the Italians early on.
The Sergio Conseikao team was destroyed 5 to 1 by Liverpool in the last match against Europe. Meanwhile, Stefano Pioli’s team had a last-minute broken heart against Atletico Madrid, leaving both teams undefeated in the first two Group B games.
Diaz tried to capture the early initiative, but was rejected by woodworking only four minutes later, and Mehdi Taremi spurred a series of opportunities.
However, Diaz was able to break the deadlock at Dragão after an interval to blame Milan for consecutive defeats away in Europe for the first time since April 2012.

Diaz provided the host with an almost perfect start. Columbia International excavated a low drive against the left post before Taremi curled narrowly.
Olivier Giroud turned the header in the wrong direction after Rafael Leão’s cross created Milan’s first good-looking chance.
Taremi continued to chase the opener after the interval and took advantage of Tomori Fikayo’s mistake to slightly miss the left foot strike from the target.
Tomori made a fix in the last block to deny Otabio before Mateus Uribe fired an arrow just opposite the left post, but Porto had to wait that long for their natural opener. There wasn’t.
Visitors felt that Ismael Benasser had been fouled by Taremi, but 65 minutes later Diaz fired into the lower right corner, which was opposed by referee Felix Brych, and Pepe made an unusual left foot effort three minutes later. ..
Pioli’s team didn’t seem to find a slow equalizer as Porto scored his seventh clean sheet in the final eight group stage matches of the tournament.
