Match Preview

Sevilla aiming to build on weekend success Sevilla travel to Porto looking to save their Europa League campaign with a renewed confidence following their weekend win over Hercules, according to goalkeeper Javi Varas. Sevilla had failed to win in six competitive matches heading into Sunday`s clash, with four of those games ending in defeat - including a 2-1 home loss to Porto in the first leg of their last-32 tie. However, an early strike from new signing Ivan Rakitic earned the Andalusian side the three points against Hercules, and a much-needed boost to morale. Goalkeeper Varas, whose side moved to within three points of sixth-placed Espanyol with the win, said: "It was important to get a victory and keep a clean sheet. The three points are much-welcomed because the team were on a negative run. Already the atmosphere in the dressing room is different." Looking ahead to Wednesday's match, Varas said: "If we aren't convinced that about getting through, then who would be? After the victory over Hercules the team's morale has changed and we are more confident. "In the first leg we did enough to get a better result, but if we play like that again in Wednesday's game and have a little more luck we will have our chances of getting through." Sevilla coach Gregorio Manzano has taken a 21-man squad with him to Portugal, with Andres Palop, Martin Caceres and Ndri Romaric the men missing due to injury. In-form Porto, who scored an 85th-minute winner in the first leg through substitute Fredy Guarin, remain unbeaten in nine games in Europe this season under new coach Andre Villas-Boas. Speaking ahead of the match, Villas-Boas said: "The (first leg) win was important but it doesn't mean the tie is over. The job is far from done. "Only a very competent FC Porto will be able to decide the tie. Anything can happen. It's important that our supporters unite behind the team." He added: "We could be up against a team that wants to start aggressively and take risks, or be just the opposite, being organised and waiting for opportunities. We must be wary, these are players who want to get out of their difficult situation. This is their last chance. " Falcao, the Europa League's leading scorer with seven goals, could feature for the runaway Portuguese league leaders after injury, but Alvaro Pereira is missing.

Match Report

Porto progress despite loss Porto progressed to the last 16 of the Europa League despite slumping to a 1-0 defeat at home to Sevilla in a hugely entertaining second leg at the Estadio do Dragao. Porto, holding a 2-1 lead from last week's first leg in Spain, looked in complete control of Wednesday's return meeting until a two-minute spell midway through the second half threatened to undo all their good work. First, Sevilla substitute Luis Fabiano scored against his former club to give the 2006 and 2007 UEFA Cup winners a lifeline, and then 60 seconds later Porto were reduced to 10 men when Alvaro Pereira was shown a straight red card. The runaway Portuguese league leaders suddenly looked in serious trouble, but Sevilla lost their man advantage five minutes later when centre-back Alexis was dismissed for a second yellow card, and the visitors could find no way through in the closing stages as they exited the competition. Sevilla considered themselves unlucky to lose the first leg after playing well but going down to an 85th-minute goal, and Gregorio Manzano's side looked fired up from the start with Frederic Kanoute sending a shot just wide in the third minute. However, that was as good as it got for the Primera Division outfit in the first half as Porto gradually stamped their class on proceedings. Fernando Belluschi fired a thunderous 30-yard effort just wide while Sevilla goalkeeper Javi Varas denied Alvaro and Hulk in the opening 45 minutes. Porto also hit the woodwork prior to the break when the fit-again Falcao, this season's leading scorer in the Europa League, was unlucky to see a superb header come back off the crossbar with Varas well beaten. It was a similar story after the break with Belluschi, Falcao, Hulk - twice - and Joao Moutinho going close before the hosts were stunned when their former player Luis Fabiano put Sevilla ahead. The Brazil international, who had only been on the pitch for 15 minutes, latched on to a good through-ball from Alvaro Negredo, held off his marker and thumped his shot past Porto goalkeeper Helton. That still left Sevilla needing another goal to save themselves, but their hopes received a further boost moments later when Alvaro was dismissed following a crunching challenge on Gary Medel after losing control of the ball. Sevilla barely had time to make the most of that sending-off before they too lost a player, with Alexis picking up a second yellow for tugging back the dangerous Hulk. The away side pushed hard in the closing stages and Kanoute headed wide while Jesus Navas' cross just failed to pick out the unmarked Diego Perotti in the middle. However, it was Porto who looked the more likely scorers as Sevilla left gaps at the back, but Hulk, who had numerous openings, and his team-mates could not find the goal that would have prevented a first European defeat in nine matches under coach Andri Villas-Boas. The misses did not prove costly though as Porto held on for an away-goals triumph that sets up a last-16 showdown with CSKA Moscow.
