Dortmund, Porto take Champs League honours

·2-min read

A double from Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland has helped Borussia Dortmund come from behind to win 3-2 at Sevilla in their Champions League last-16 first leg while Porto struck early in each half to down Juventus 2-1.

A brilliant shot from Mahmoud Dahoud brought Dortmund level after Suso's early deflected opener for Sevilla while Haaland's surging run and one-two with Jadon Sancho soon put the guests ahead.

Haaland added another on the counter-attack before the break for a season-best eighth in the competition and leave Sevilla with an uphill task in the March 9 second leg in Dortmund despite Luuk de Jong's late consolation.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus must also come from behind, though at home, after Mehdi Taremi scored for Porto a minute into the game and Moussa Marega doubled the lead just 20 seconds into the second half.

Federico Chiesa's away goal for Juventus could yet prove crucial.

Dortmund had won just two of their past seven games in all competitions to sit sixth in the Bundesliga but a slick performance has them on the brink of the Champions League quarter-finals.

Dahoud found the top corner from distance in the 19th minute and Haaland powered through the Sevilla defence to take a chipped return pass from Sancho and put Dortmund ahead on 27.

And another cool finish from the 20-year-old, after recalled captain Marco Reus won the ball in midfield, had Dortmund cruising just before the break.

Despite winning their past nine in all competitions going into Wednesday's game, Sevilla were second-best throughout even with Suso giving them a seventh-minute lead thanks to a deflection off Mats Hummels.

Dortmund will expect to see out the tie at home though De Jong converting a set piece at the back post six minutes from time boosted Sevilla's hopes.

Porto wasted no time in setting the tone in a duel of two-time European champions when Taremi seized on Rodrigo Bentancour's slack back pass to force the ball home.

Juventus, and Ronaldo in particular, struggled to impose themselves until late in the half but fell further behind after the restart when Marega turned in Wilson Manafa's cut back.

Chiesa guided in Adrien Rabiot's 82nd minute cross though to keep Juventus well in the contest though as Porto conceded for the first time since their opening match of the group stage away to Manchester City.
