FC Porto were made to wait but finally claimed all three Group A points against Paris Saint-Germain FC thanks to a fine late winner from James Rodríguez.
The 2004 UEFA Champions League winners were on the front foot throughout, mustering a total of 20 shots compared with PSG's six, but only made the breakthrough with seven minutes remaining. The ball found its way to Rodríguez at the far post and the Colombian international curled a beautiful left-foot shot back across goal to maintain Porto's perfect start to this season's competition.
We knew they had a lot of good players, but we were far better tonight. We are very strong, but must take things step by step.
James Rodríguez, Porto forward
It's our first defeat this season, but it's no surprise we lost as we faced a more experienced team. We are disappointed, as we wanted to play better.
Carlo Ancelotti, PSG coach
