FC Porto 0-0 A Madrid (agg 2-2)

Sergio Aguero tussles with Porto's Bruno Alves
Porto kept Atletico striker Sergio Aguero well shackled

Porto comfortably kept Atletico Madrid at bay to reach the Champions League quarter-finals on away goals.

Having conceded twice at home, the pressure was on Atletico to score and they could find no way past a solid Porto backline.

Porto had the best chance of the first half but Leo Franco saved sharply from Fernando's low strike.

And the Atletico keeper made a string of superb saves in the second half as Porto deservedly went through.

Franco tipped over a Raul Meireles cross-shot and from the resulting corner, pushed Cristian Rodriguez's bullet header over the bar.

Only a few minutes later, he kept out a swerving volley by Lucho.

Lisandro Lopez, who scored both Porto's goals in the first leg, also struck the post from an acute angle 10 minutes from time.
