Goals at the end of each half earned FC Porto a 2-0 Group A win at GNK Dinamo Zagreb, as coach Ante Čačić suffered the first defeat of his tenure with the Croatian champions.
Dinamo had gone 33 matches unbeaten since Čačić replaced Krunoslav Jurčić last December, but Lucho González's tap-in and a last-gasp Steven Defour strike saw the post-Hulk era at Porto begin with a victory despite a late rally from the home side.
It's a pity we conceded a goal just before half-time ... [but] Porto deserved to win the match. We were playing against a better team.
Ante Čačić, Dinamo coach
We should have scored the second goal earlier because we were dominating and creating chances. We need to maintain this level in the coming matches.
Vítor Pereira, Porto coach
