That brings an end to our coverage of the Champions League round of 16 second-leg clash between Juventus and Porto at Allianz Stadium. Thank you very much for joining us. Goodbye!
Juventus will be looking to bounce back in their upcoming Serie A fixture against Cagliari. Porto, who find out their Champions League quarter-final opponents on March 19th, host Pacos Ferreira next time out in the Primeira Liga.
Following an end-to-end contest, 10-man Porto progress to the next round of the Champions League on away goals despite losing 3-2 at Allianz Stadium. Oliveira’s penalty fired the visitors in front in the first half, before Chiesa levelled the score four minutes after the restart. The Dragons then went down to 10 men after Taremi was sent off for a second bookable offence, and Juventus capitalised with Chiesa heading the Old Lady in front on 63 minutes. In extra-time, Oliveira’s long-range free-kick put Porto in front on aggregate, with Rabiot’s 117th-minute goal proving to be nothing more than a consolation.
120' + 5'
FULL TIME: JUVENTUS 3-2 PORTO (4-4 ON AGGREGATE – PORTO QUALIFY FOR THE QUARTER-FINALS)
120' + 4'
CLAWED AWAY! Following a foul by Martinez on Kulusevski, Cuadrado’s free-kick from the right is flicked on by Rabiot, and Marchesin is quickly off his line to claw the ball away with Demiral lurking. That should be that.
120' + 2'
Mbemba picks up a late yellow card for dissent.
PENALTY!? Cuadrado’s low cross is gathered by De Ligt a few yards inside the box, and the Dutchman goes down under Leite’s challenge. The referee is well placed to wave away the protests, and VAR confirms the decision to not award a spot-kick. Time is running out for Juventus!
There will be three minutes of added time at the end of the second half in extra-time.
It is a double substitution for the away side. Loum replaces the goalscorer, Oliveira.
With minutes left to play, the away side make a defensive change in bringing on Leite for Corona.
The quality of the delivery from Bernardeschi cannot be understated. His out-swinging corner was steered into a dangerous area, and Rabiot made no mistake with the finish.
GOAL! INSTANT REPLY! Juventus are not out of this yet! Following Bernardeschi’s corner from the left, Rabiot climbs highest in the centre of the box and powers a header beyond Marchesin and into the top-left corner. Is there time for another?! 3-2.
GOAL! UNBELIEVABLE! Porto lead the tie! Oliveira fires the low free-kick under the wall, and, despite getting a hand to the ball, Szczesny is unable to keep it out. What a strike! 2-2.

Underway! Porto get the second half in extra-time kicked off.
Ahead of the second half in extra-time, Marega makes way for Martinez.
Despite Juventus having most of the ball in the first period of extra-time, Porto had the best opportunity to break the deadlock. Following a well-worked corner routine from the left, Marega failed to steer his close-range header either side of Szczesny. As such, there is still nothing between the two sides.

HALF TIME: JUVENTUS 2-1 PORTO (3-3 ON AGGREGATE)

Diaz gets the better of Cuadrado down the left-hand side of the field, and the full-back handles the ball as he goes to ground. For that, the Colombian earns himself a yellow card. Should Juventus qualify for the next round, he will now miss the first leg of their quarter-final tie.
Kick off! Juventus get the first half of extra-time underway.
Following a dominant second-half display, Juventus take the tie to extra-time after overturning a two-goal deficit.

Taremi was then dismissed for a second bookable offence, and Chiesa added his second just before the hour mark. The Old Lady pushed for a winner against 10-man Porto in the closing stages, but Morata had a goal ruled out for offside and Cuadrado struck the bar. Extra-time awaits.

It is a double change for the Old Lady, as McKennie enters the fray in place of Ramsey.
M. de Ligt
As we enter the final 15 minutes of normal time, Pirlo brings on De Ligt for Bonucci. It remains 2-1 on the night.
If the score stays the same in the remaining minutes, the tie will go to extra-time. It is currently 3-3 on aggregate.
With pressure mounting, Conceicao turns to his bench for the second time. Diaz replaces Sanusi.
SMART STOP! After playing a short free-kick from the right, Rabiot fires a first-time shot towards goal, and Marchesin is equal to it at the near post.
Juventus are causing lots of problems for Porto in wide areas now. Sandro’s cross from the left just evades Ronaldo before falling for Rabiot, although the referee’s assistant has his flag up for offside against the Frenchman.
Chiesa is the first Italian to score twice in a Champions League match for Juventus since Alessandro Del Piero in November 2008.
Cuadrado has attempted that cross for much of this game, and this time the end product matches the quality of the delivery. The Italian winger burst away from Manafa before rising well to steer beyond Marchesin.
GOAL! Juventus have levelled the tie! Cuadrado once again drifts into a yard of space down the right-hand side of the field and steers an inviting cross towards the far post. Chiesa perfectly times his run off the shoulder, and powers a header into the top-left corner. VAR confirms the Italian was onside and the goal stands. 2-1.
The away side make their first change of the match, Sarr replaces Otavio. It remains 1-1.

OFF THE POST! Rabiot launches a well-weighted throughball in behind the Dragons’ defence for the overlapping Chiesa. The Italian rounds Marchesin, but, under pressure Pepe, the ball cannons against the post and out for a corner.
RED CARD! Taremi is sent off! After Marega was adjudged to have fouled Demiral while competing for an aerial ball, Taremi fires the ball forward after the whistle had gone. The Juventus players surround the referee, and he goes to his pocket to show the Porto striker a second yellow card.
After the referee let the play go for that earlier Ramsey opportunity, he calls it back to hand Taremi a yellow card after he caught Chiesa with a late challenge midway inside the Porto half.
GREAT CHANCE! Cuadrado finds space down the right to whip and in-swinging cross into the box, and Ramsey steers his header straight at Marchesin from the centre of the penalty area.
Mbemba catches Ronaldo, and Juventus win a free-kick down the left flank.
After some patient play, Bonucci opted to force the issue with his searching forward pass from midway inside the visitors’ half. Ronaldo perfectly timed his run off the shoulder, and Chiesa made no mistake with the finish.
GOAL! Juventus pull one back! Bonucci lofts a deft throughball in behind the visitors’ defence, and Ronaldo is able to bring it down. The Portuguese attacker’s cushioned touch tees it up nicely for Chiesa, who curls a right-footed effort beyond Marchesin and into the top-right corner from the left side of the box. After checking with VAR for offside against Ronaldo, the goal stands.1-1.
Porto had nine shots in the first half, their most in the opening 45 minutes of an away Champions League knockout game since April 2009. During that campaign, the registered 10 in the quarter-finals against Manchester United.
We are back underway! Kuipers, the referee, blows his whistle and Porto get the second half kicked off.
Despite dominating the ball, Pirlo will demand more from his side after the break. Although Morata missed a couple of clear-cut chances, the Old Lady have thus far failed to get Ronaldo into the game. If they hope to overturn the deficit in the second half, they will need to involve the Portuguese attacker at every opportunity. Conceicao, meanwhile, will be delighted with his team's first-half display. As they have done throughout this year’s competition, the Dragons look solid at the back and threatening on the counter.
Following an action-packed opening half, Porto take a one-goal lead on the night in at the break. In the opening stages, both sides had chances to take the lead with Taremi striking the bar and Marchesin keeping out Morata's powerful header. On the 19-minute mark, the Dragons broke the deadlock from the spot through Oliveira after a foul on Taremi from Demiral. Pirlo’s team responded well, and Marchesin was once again called into action to deny Morata’s close-range shot after he latched onto Cuadrado’s far-post cross.

HALF TIME: JUVENTUS 0-1 PORTO (1-3 ON AGGREGATE)
45' + 2'
As Cuadrado looked to break, Otavio cynically fouls him and picks up the first yellow card of the match. He can have no complaints with that decision.
45' + 2'
SAVE! Arthur brings down Manafa, and Porto win a free-kick in an advanced position down the right flank. Oliveira looks to drive a low delivery into the box, but it does not beat the first man. The hosts fail to clear the danger, and Oliveira’s shot from an acute angle is gathered by Szczesny.
There will be four minutes of added time at the end of the first half.
Oliveria sends a lofted throughball forward for Marega to chase, and Szczesny is quickly off his line to deal with the threat.
OPENING! Cuadrado’s resulting set-piece is flicked on in the centre of the box by Morata, and Marchesin is alert to beat Bonucci to the ball with the defender unmarked at the far post.
Cuadrado plays a corner short from the right, and the hosts eventually work the ball to Arthur. The midfielder goes for goal from range, and his strike cannons behind for another corner off Marega.
The Old Lady are enjoying their best spell of possession at present. However, Porto are lining up with a back six without the ball, which Juventus are struggling to break down.
Porto have had eight shots in the opening 36 minutes of play against Juventus, as many they had in the entire first leg.
Following that earlier knock, Pepe is now back to his feet and able to continue.
There will be a brief stoppage in play as Pepe is in need of treatment following a clash of heads with Demiral inside the visitors’ box.

Sanusi looks to chase a loose ball down the left flank, but just catches Rabiot’s ankles. The home side are awarded a free-kick.
WHAT A CHANCE! Cuadrado cuts inside onto his left foot and floats an inviting cross in towards the far post. Mbemba misjudges the flight of the ball, allowing Morata to take it down. From close range, the Spaniard looks to bend his strike beyond Marchesin, but the Porto goalkeeper parries the shot behind for a corner.
SMART STOP! Otavio tries his luck from the edge of the box, and his curling right-footed effort is gathered by the Juventus goalkeeper, who was quickly down to his left.
GOOD SAVE! The away side once again attack at pace on the counter. The Dragons this time drive forward down the right, and Corana sees a well-struck shot saved by Szczesny at the near post.
Cuadrado easily loses the ball to Otavio, and Porto launch a quick counter through Oliveria. The goalscorer drives forward before looking for Marega with a low left-footed cross, but Demiral reads the danger and clears.
Following that opening goal, Porto now lead the tie 3-1 on aggregate. As such, Juventus need to score twice to send the clash to extra-time.
GOAL! Porto take the lead! Oliveira coolly slides the spot-kick into the bottom-left corner, sending Szczesny the wrong way. 1-0.
PENALTY! Corana slides the ball down the right side of the hosts’ penalty area for Marega, who quickly steers it inside for Taremi. The striker shields it from Demiral, who catches him from behind and the referee points to the spot! After checking with VAR, the decision stands. Oliveira will take it...

Otavio pulls Cuadrado to the ground down the right flank and the decision goes Juventus’ way. Free-kick.
Porto continue to push forward in their efforts to score an early away goal. Sanusi’s long throw-in from the left is only nodded out as far as Uribe, who lashes a first-time strike well wide to the right of Szczesny’s goal.
CLOSE! Ronaldo is brought down a few yards outside the visitors’ penalty area by Uribe and Juventus win a free-kick. Cuadrado’s delivery is flicked on by Ramsey but fizzes wide of the far post.
OFF THE BAR! Sanusi does brilliantly to skip beyond Cuadrado and drive into space in an advanced position down the left, before picking out Taremi in the middle of the area. The striker’s initial shot is blocked by Bonucci, and his follow-up effort is headed against the ball and out for a goal-kick.
Bonucci and Szczesny fail to deal with a pass in behind, and Marega almost goes through on goal, but his touch takes it over the line for a goal-kick.
GREAT CHANCE! Cuadrado finds space down the right-hand side of the field and whips a curling cross into the Porto box from deep. Morata peels into space and heads the ball towards goal, but Marchesin reacts quickly to deny the Spaniard.
WIDE! After some bright play, a loose ball falls to Uribe on the edge of the box, and the midfielder pulls his shot wide of the near post. Juventus did not close him down.
Sandro immediately looks to get Juventus on the front foot, but his forward pass catches Chiesa in an offside position.
Kick off! The referee, Bjorn Kuipers, blows his whistle and Juventus get the game underway.
The teams are out, and kick-off will soon be upon us here at Allianz Stadium.
