Ten-man Porto squeezed past Andrea Pirlo’s to reach the Champions League quarterfinals despite a 3-2 defeat after extra time at the Allianz Arena saw them triumph on away goals with a 4-4 aggregate score line.
The game totally flipped within five second-half minutes. First, on 49 minutes, Chiesa pulled a goal back after being played in by Ronaldo before Taremi, having recently received a yellow card, was booked again for kicking the ball away.
"When you make four big errors over two legs in the Champions League Round of 16, you can get eliminated," Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia.
"I am not happy to be working with a full week, as I'd have preferred to stay in the Champions League. Now that we're in this situation, we can work on various aspects in training, which we haven't had time to do so far this season, and try to improve on those."
