FC Porto lost to Rangers (2-0), for matchday four of Group G of Europa League.

This Thursday, FC Porto lost to Rangers (2-0), at the Ibrox Stadium, in Glasgow, Scotland, for matchday four of Group G of Europa League. The Dragons remain at four points, three behind Young Boys and Rangers, who have seven.

It was a customized and authoritarian FC Porto that started the match at the Ibrox Stadium, in Glasgow, taking control of operations, against a team that clearly aimed at creating danger from counterattacks. After a corner-kick taken by Alex Telles, Pepe reached the ball, but made it fly over goalkeeper Allan McGregor, but Glen Kamara stole the thunder from the blue and white central defender on the touch line (8m). That was, in fact, the best opportunity in a well-played first-half, but the blue and whites were slightly better, it should be said.

The second-half started with Pepe being injured, which forced Sérgio Conceição to send in Luis Díaz to replace him (49m). Shortly after Wilson Manafá had Goldson deny him of a goal (67m), Rangers scored, out of nowhere, with Alfredo Morelos scoring with his left foot inside the area (69m). The unfairness of the result became even bigger after Steven Davis made it 2-0, with the ball deflecting on Marcano and beating Marchesín (73m).

With two goals, the Scottish team reached an advantage that was hard to overcome for FC Porto, and that was decisive for the outcome of the match. In an unfortunate evening, the Dragons were defeated in Glasgow, but remain in the fight for the qualification to the knock-out stage in Europa League.
