Two Mexico internationals did their best to keep FC Porto in the fight of Group G of the Champions League, with Miguel Layun scoring a goal and Jesus “Tecatito” Corona earning a late penalty in their 2-1 comeback win over Club Brugge.
The Belgian side didn’t take long to make an impact and took a shock lead in the 12th minute through Jelle Vossen.
But Miguel Layun, who joined Hector Herrera in the staring lineup, scored the equalizer in the 68th minute with a superb right-footed strike. His goal was set up perfectly by an Otavio breakaway and was his second career goal in the Champions League.
Tecatito, who came into the game in the second half, then proved instrumental in FC Porto’s winner. In the dying moments of the match, the 23-year-old was tripped inside the box by Claudemir, earning the Portuguese giants a penalty. Andre Silva stepped up and fired past Ludovic Butelle to give Porto their first win of their continental campaign.
The win takes Porto to third in Group G, leveled on points with second-place Copenhagen. They next host Club Brugge on November 2 in action of matchday four.
