Cannot be blamed for the goal, and had little to occupy himself with otherwise.
An eager candidate on the right, providing a resourceful overlapping outlet on most of Vienna's attacks, and committing himself to the cause defensively. His enthusiasm got the better of him, however, as he saw yellow for a lunge in the first half.
Not only did he lock down his left flank and prevent Lica from finding a route through, but more than once, he popped up centrally in the nick of time to snuff out Jackson Martinez on the ball.
Solid for the most part, but possibly could have provided better cover in the buildup to the first goal of the game.
Performed a generally sound marking job on Jackson Martinez, giving the Colombian striker barely any space when he got on the ball.
Drifted into a few dangerous long-range shooting positions, but his radar was well and truly off, as he fluffed his lines at every opportunity.
Lost sight of Lucho Gonzalez at the edge of the box, allowing the Porto man the space he needed to pick his spot.
Looked to be a source of trouble for Sandro early on after drawing a few fouls, but faded alarmingly from the game as the match went on.
Showed himself as a clever operator when one the ball, and came within inches of getting his name on the score sheet with a bullet header that hit the post.
One of the only members of Viennas squad to have previous Champions League experience, but it counted for little on the field as he was largely stymied out wide.
Did nit have much to work with in terms of service for most of the game, but proved himself a winning runner throughout, and nearly slipped in for the kill.
Not the most secure handling in the early exchanges, but made a smart save on a Vienna break, and looked more assured catching the ball late on.
Did not look entirely comfortable on the rare Vienna attack, and was forced to scramble for the ball when proper reading of the game would have made many of his tasks routine.
Made a telling contribution early in the second half when he skipped free down the right flank and cut back smartly to Lucho Gonzalez to break the deadlock.
Hardly put a foot wrong at the back, and attended to his defensive duties with diligence. In all honesty though, his task was not the most difficult.
Looked one of the most promising attacking outlets for his side with his ability to beat his man, and did not neglect his defensive duties either, timing a few interceptions perfectly. However, he did see yellow for a careless tug.
Relished the midfield dogfight on the night, showing an appetite for winning the ball and disrupting play in the centre of the park. A decent option going forward as well, as he tested the keeper with a long-range drive.
Retained possession intelligently for his side, and showed a fair amount of poise to slot home a cutback from the top of the box for the opening goal of the game.
Generally a fruitless outing for him on the flanks, as staunch defensive attention and a lack of dynamism on his own part saw him isolated.
Distributed the ball effectively, and settled well into a supportive role for the attack. Helped to shore up the defensive positions late in the game.
A tough night for Porto's main man, who was matched every step of the way by the determined defence of the hosts. However, it was this trend that played a part in Porto's goal, as he pulled the centre backs out of position, creating space for Lucho Gonzalez.
He did fare slightly better than Lica on the opposite flank, but his game still suffered from inconsistency, and for the most part, he did not come up with the end product required.
