Atletico Madrid 2-2 FC Porto Highlights

Atletico Madrid were indebted to Leo Franco for keeping their Champions League hopes alive as the Spanish side claimed a barely-deserved draw against Porto in the first leg of their last-16 tie tonight.

Goalkeeper Leo Franco produced a series of crucial blocks and saves to prevent Porto from running riot, most notably in the opening period, to give Atletico at least a fighting chance of still making the quarter-finals.

1-0 Maxi Rodriguez 3′

1-1 Lisandro 22′

2-1 D.Forlán 45′

2-2 Lisandro 72′

Hosts Atletico had led twice in the match – with their second goal coming via an awful mistake by Porto goalkeeper Helton – but they were pegged back by two strikes from the dangerous Lisandro, who could easily have netted double that number.
