FC Porto's hopes of progress to the UEFA Champions League knockout stage are hanging by a thread after they were held to a draw by a courageous FK Austria Wien side.
Roman Kienast fired the visitors into a surprise early lead with their first-ever goal in the group stage, and although Jackson Martínez equalised, Porto's failure to find a second means they go to Group G winners Club Atlético de Madrid on matchday six needing a win while hoping second-placed FC Zenit slip up. This was another strong away showing from Austria after their draw at Zenit on matchday two, and they will attempt to get their first victory against the same opponents in Vienna in the final game.
It is hard for us to go into the last game in this situation. We had the possibility of entering that game with the outcome in our own hands.
Paulo Fonseca, Porto coach
What we delivered today was the absolute maximum of our capabilities. A huge compliment to the team and the way they handled themselves.
Nenad Bjelica, Austria coach
