Porto defeat Galatasaray to take top spot

FC Porto defeat Galatasaray 1-0

The Lions were unlucky not to score in an even duel that saw Porto take home the three points.

Portugese giants Porto FC defeated Galatasaray 1-0 Wednesday evening in their UEFA Champions League Group D clash.

A header from Porto’s Moussa Marega broke the deadlock in the 49th minute and was enough to give his team the three points.

Marega headed home the only goal after a corner by Alex Telles in the 49th minute at the Estadio do Dragao in Porto.

Porto shares the top spot in Group D with Germany’s Schalke 04 with both teams at 4 points each, followed by Galatasaray with 3 points and Lokomotiv Moscow with no points after two games.

To date, the UEFA Champions League Cup has proved elusive for Turkish clubs, with the Lions being the only Turkish club to have won the UEFA Cup in 1999-2000 and the 2000 UEFA Super Cup.
