Club Atlético de Madrid took leadership of Group G after coming from a goal down to beat their UEFA Champions League bogey team FC Porto at the Estádio do Dragão.
Arriving on the back of a superb weekend win in the Madrid derby, Diego Simeone's side fell behind to Jackson Martínez's first-half header, but recovered as captain Gabi set up goals for Diego Godín and Arda Turan after the break. Porto had been unbeaten in four previous meetings with Atlético in the competition, but must now look to recover on matchday three against FC Zenit while Atlético go to FK Austria Wien.
It is incredible the reaction we produced tonight. Everyone put in a great performance. The team must be congratulated.
Diego Simeone, Atlético coach
First of all, this is a huge injustice, especially considering our performance in the first half. And in part of the second half too.
