On a night when Juventus did very little, Federico Chiesa’s belated strike announced them on Nov. March at least a lifeline for the second leg in Turin

Taremi pounced on a sloppy back pass after 63 seconds to shoot into the opener, which Juventus rattled as they didn’t have significant chances before half time

Things got worse for Andrea Pirlo when Marega shot in Porto’s second 19 seconds in the second half

Juventus finally responded when Chiesa scored a valuable away goal eight minutes from time, but it wasn’t enough to stop the 2004 champions from celebrating their maiden win over the Italian club on their sixth attempt

The winger’s hit ended Porto’s run of five goals in a row, leaving the tie wide open before the second leg

Juve impressed in the group stage with five out of six games, including a 3-0 win on the last day in Barcelona

But they got the worst start when Taremi Rodrigo awaited Bentancur’s pass back to Wojciech Szczesny and shot past the goalkeeper from close range

Juve was visibly held back from their crotch by the aggression of Porto’s pressure and almost caught again when Szczesny cleared the ball straight to Sergio Oliveira, whose shot was deflected far

Things got worse for the Turin club when captain Giorgio Chiellini hobbled away after 34 minutes due to an injury

Porto was even faster out of the blocks in the second half when Marega fired home within seconds of the restart at the end of a Wilson Manafa cut-back

Szczesny reached out a hand to keep a shot by Oliveira from scoring three hits, but the crowd finally came alive in the last 20 minutes

Agustin Marchesin had to mix up to block a deflected shot from Chiesa before the Italian international raced for a pass to cushion a finish in the corner

The goal made Chiesa the first Juventus player alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored a knockout goal in the Champions League since Blaise Matuidi in April 2018

Ronaldo, the competition’s top scorer, was largely kept silent on his return to his home country but had appeals for a penalty that was waved away after a loss in added time

Pirlo was frustrated that his side were giving Porto an early lead and said it immediately changed the pace of his side

“We prepared well for the game, unlike during the game,” Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia

“That wasn’t the attitude we wanted to impose, but if you miss a goal after a minute it gets harder

“We knew they were closing the rooms very well, it was the match they wanted to play and we gave it to them on a silver platter”

Porto coach Sergio Conceicao said his side won’t send his side to Italy just to hold onto their narrow advantage in the second leg

“Juve have to make a comeback, but that doesn’t mean we will just go there on defense, we’ll see who plays when the characteristics of the players are different”
