Champions League : Leipizg missing Forsberg for Besiktas clash

Champions League : Leipizg missing Forsberg for Besiktas clash

But in a one-sided second half, Sevilla breached the stubborn home defence when goalkeeper Jasmin Handanovic failed to keep out substitute Ganso's low shot following good work by Joaquin Correa.

By then, however, Porto was all but assured of second place in the group.

Vincent Aboubakar has stated the Porto's intention "to go as far as possible" in the Uefa Champions League following Wednesday's annihilation of French champions Monaco at Estadio do Dragao.

The German side, who had to achieve a better result than Porto to finish second behind Group G winners Besiktas, were beaten by a half-volleyed 90th minute strike from Brazil Under-23 worldwide Talisca.

Monaco looked like they might make a game of it when Kamil Glik scored a penalty on the hour, but the lead was back to three just minutes later, when Alex Telles scored a fine goal.

The Guinean worldwide brought them back into a game that had looked lost when Stefan Ilsanker picked up his second yellow card in the 82nd minute for a cynical foul on Cenk Tosun.

Just when Naby Keita thought he'd salvaged a draw for the home side, Brazilian midfielder Talisca scored with a half-volley in the final minute to earn Besiktas all three points.

Feyenoord scored a late victor to secure a 2-1 victory against Napoli in group F.

Cristiano Ronaldo may be struggling for form domestically, but in the Champions League he is unstoppable, scoring a brilliant goal against Dortmund to set a new record as the only player to hit the net in each of the six group games.

By that stage both teams had been reduced to 10 men, because Porto's Felipe and Monaco's Rachid Ghezzal were sent off after a clash between the two.
