Aboubakar double inspires Porto to last-16 place, Monaco slump

Aboubakar double inspires Porto to last-16 place, Monaco slump

FC Porto confidently strode into the last 16 of the Champions League with a 5-2 hammering of Monaco at the Estádio do Dragão last night.

The result left Porto with three wins, a draw and two defeats from their six group games and Conceicao praised his side, who are now unbeaten in 10 matches in all competitions.

"For me, it was a huge pleasure to come here and play again".

"We had enough chances to win four or five games this evening", lamented Hasenhüttl to Sky afterwards - and indeed Timo Werner did have the ball in the net half-way through the first half only for the goal to be correctly ruled out for offside.

"We have to not let our standard drop, so that we can keep dreaming".

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.

Napoli, who drop into the Europa League, had made a blistering start in their bid to stay in contention with Piotr Zielinski opening the scoring in the second minute. "It's like my home and I won a lot of trophies here", the Colombian told UEFA.com.

Falcao said he believes Monaco, who are third in Ligue 1 and nine points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain, can recover from their hard start to the season.

RB Leipzig will be without playmaker Emil Forsberg amid a trio of injuries for Wednesday's crunch Champions League clash at home to Besiktas.

"We are eager to do better than in the first leg, we do not like to lose twice against the same opponent", said Hasenhuettl.

"Our team changed a lot in the summer and we need time to get stronger".

"Besiktas were the team to beat in our group and we want to prove that we're capable of beating a team like that in the Champions League".
