FC Porto was defeated this Thursday in Rotterdam by the Feyenoord. In a tightly contested game, the Dutch team proved effective in swinging their nets and beat the dragons 2-0 on matchday two of the Europa League Group G.
It was a tough match for FC Porto, who came from a positive run. The defeat did not translate into a bad performance by Sérgio Conceição’s team, but there is a lot to improve, there is. Starting with the finish and ending in the defensive process.
Marcano almost scored a goal, Pepe made mistakes after mistakes and nobody could score in front. Neither Marega, nor Octavius, nor Luis Diaz or Soares. The irons denied them their goals and even Sérgio Conceição said at the end: “We could be here all night and we didn’t score.” It was the only game of the season in which FC Porto did not score any goals. The last time this had happened was last season against Liverpool in the Champions League.
