Sergio Oliveira scored twice as 10-man Porto dumped Juventus out of the Champions League with a scintillating away goals victory after a 3-2 second-leg defeat in Turin.

Juventus’ task of overturning a 2-1 deficit from the first leg was compounded when Oliveira’s penalty gave Porto a the lead after 19 minutes, but Federico Chiesa netted twice in 14 second-half minutes – either side of a red card shown to Porto striker Mehdi Taremi – to take the round-of-16 tie into extra-time.

Oliveira buried a stunning second goal of the night with five minutes left in the second period of extra-time, only for Adrien Rabiot to equalise and set up a tense finish.

Porto held on to spark wild celebrations on the visiting bench as Juve’s quest for a first European title since 1996 ended in failure, heaping pressure on head coach Andrea Pirlo.
