Chelsea loanee Malang Sarr was part of the Porto team that stopped Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus from progressing to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Sarr came on for the final half-hour of normal time in the second leg against Juventus. With Porto a man down in an enthralling contest in Turin, Sarr and his nine team-mates held on to ensure that they sent Juve packing.

Speaking to the official Chelsea website, Sarr was all smiles as he looked back at the incident.

He said: “That game was unbelievable, with a lot of ups and downs.

“I came in after the red card. I knew it would be tough, for sure, but playing 10 against 11, it was even harder. When I saw that happen, the team acted differently. We stepped up and played like we were 11 on the pitch. Everyone was giving everything, and to catch that feeling was really great.

“To finish the game like this, the last-minute goal, against Juventus…wow. That is the game you want to play, 10 against 11, with all the difficulties and things not going your way, that was really the game. We fought against adversity.”
