Porto have taken a 1-0 lead over Chelsea in tonight’s Champions League game at the Estádio Do Dragão.
Andre was the scorer, firing home the rebound after Asmir Begovic saved Yacine Brahimi’s initial effort.
Porto deserved their lead after having the better chances. Signs of Chelsea’s ongoing poor form were visible all over the pitch, with misplaced passes and wayward shots proving to be all to common.
Falling behind eventually injected some life into the visitors, and they struck back on the stroke of half-time through Willian. Pedro was hacked down thirty yards from goal, and the 27 year old Brazilian bent a wonderful free-kick into the top corner.
Mourinho will be feel fortunate to go in level against his old club, but will be be confident his side now have a platform from which to claim all three points in the second half.
The half-time score in Group H’s other game tonight is Maccabi Tel Aviv 0-1 Dynamo Kiev.
