Late Felix Goal Propels Barcelona Past Porto Into Next UCL Round

November 29, (THEWILL) – Barcelona emerged victorious with a critical 2-1 win against Porto on Tuesday night. The triumph cemented their spot in the knockout phase of the prestigious UEFA Champions League tournament.

Initially falling behind to a first-half strike by Pepe, Barcelona responded emphatically. An equaliser from Joao Cancelo just minutes later restored hope. The talented fullback ignited a second-half surge that overwhelmed Porto.

A tap-in goal by Joao Felix exemplified Barcelona’s dominance after half-time. They consistently created dangerous chances while limiting Porto’s opportunities. Felix found redemption after earlier close calls hitting the bar and sending a shot over.

The match remained intensely competitive early on. Raphinha tested Porto’s goalkeeper Diogo Costa early while Mehdi Taremi had a goal overturned due to an offside call. Galeno also forced strong saves to keep Barcelona off the scoresheet initially.

Ultimately, Barcelona’s quality shone through to seize control of the pivotal Group H clash. The triumph places them atop the group standings. It also provides valuable momentum ahead of concluding their group stage campaign.
