World News – GB – City 3-1 Porto: Highlights of the match

After a fairly steady opening, City fell behind after just 14 minutes with the kind of lens you see once in a blue moon

Ruben Dias’ pass was cut halfway by Luis Diaz, who then launched into a scramble towards goal, slicing left to right and largely undisputed before rounding around Joao Cancelo and breaking through a shot low in front of Ederson

It is the absence of a significant attempt to dispossess the Colombian that concerned Pep Guardiola

A quick response was needed, thanks to a reckless challenge from 37-year-old Porto skipper Pepe

Ilkay Gundogan attempted to get the ball around goalkeeper Marchesin before snagging a shot at the post and when the ball fell on Raheem Sterling Pepe slammed against him and the kick was awarded

The VAR then took a while to decide the referee was right before Aguero stepped in to take a low shot under the keeper and into the lower left corner

Porto almost regained the lead shortly before half-time with only a superb clearance from Kyle Walker out of the line preventing the Portuguese from regaining the advantage

Three City players have been booked ahead of the break, with visitors making the most of any tackles or challenges

Porto, often with ten men behind the ball as City attacked, continued to frustrate the hosts until the 65th minute and it was Gundogan who was instrumental in winning the free-kick on which he scarred himself, curling a beauty over the wall and in the upper left corner

Ferran Torres sealed the win seven minutes later with an equally eye-catching goal to seal a 3-1 victory
