Having made seven changes from the 5-0 thrashing of Burnley on Saturday, it took a while for Man City
to find their feet at the Estadio do Dragao, not having their first shot until the 37th minute when Raheem
Sterling had a shot cleared off the line by Zaidu Sanusi.
The rest of the match saw exceptional goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin and his deep-lying five-man defense
soak up incessant pressure from Pep Guardiola’s side, who came into the match having put five goals past
Burnley at the weekend and with a 100% record in the group.
The Argentine keeper made three superb saves. He twice denied Spanish forward Ferran Torres, pushing one
effort wide of the post in the first half before blocking a spectacular overhead kick after the break.
Porto’s stopper also denied Raheem Sterling by rushing out to block his goal attempt. The England winger
went close again when he cut in and fired a low shot which was cleared off the line by Zaidu Sanusi.
