Everyone was waiting for Cristiano Ronaldo. But in the end, it was Moussa Marega who was the talk of the town. The Malian international eclipsed the Portuguese superstar on Wednesday in the first leg of the Champions League. The Eagles striker was indeed one of the main architects of the precious victory (2-1) of FC Porto at home against Juventus Turin. He scored the second goal that guaranteed victory over the Italian champions.

An early burst of luck for the homeside as they took advantage of a misunderstanding between Bianconeri goalkeeper Szczesny and Uruguayan midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur, Mehdi Taremi opened the score after only one minute and three seconds. The perfect start for the homeside, who preserved the score till halftime.

While the Juve players were still diggesting the furious halftime talk from coach Pirlo, the Malian striker had other things in mind. Upon resumption in the early moments of the second half, Marega stole the show at the 46th minute with a fine finish. Cristiano Ronaldo, who was barely noticeable in the encounter had very little influence but it was from an up rising Federico Chiesa that the old lady had a consolation goal at the 82nd minute.

An excellent defense pair of Pepe and Chancel Bemba had clipped the wings of the Juve attack line as the score line sets up a daunting task for both sides in the return leg in Turin.
