Moutinho makes it 1-0 for Porto against Malaga

Moutinho makes it 1-0 for Porto against Malaga

A second-half goal from Joao Moutinho gave Porto a 1-0 win over Malaga on Tuesday in the last 16 of the Champions League, ending the Spanish club's unbeaten run in the competition and giving the Portuguese team a slender advantage for the return leg next month.
After almost an hour of sustained pressure, Porto's breakthrough came when defender Alex Sandro ran at the visitor's defense on the left flank and poked a pass through for Portugal midfielder Moutinho to side-foot the ball between Malaga goalkeeper Willy's legs.
Porto, a two-time European champion in the knockout round for the seventh time in 10 years, was the hungriest team and mostly dictated the run of play.
Malaga, making its debut in the competition, was happy to keep possession and cautious in attack.
