Thanks to an impressive Tobias Thurin in the first half, GOG took an early lead and were able to retain it throughout the match. The Swedish goalkeeper saved 10 shots in the first half and was central to the Danish’s side eforts.

Even better, GOG were able to keep the momentum going their way, despite Porto pushing hard early in the second half. They earned a deserved victory, claimed two more points, and took one more step towards the play-offs.

Porto have lost momentum

Once upon a time, every team in Europe was scared of traveling to Porto, as the team could beat just about anyone.

Things seem very different this season, as the Portuguese side still have no points after five rounds. GOG did not have to put in a big effort to take the lead, and by the break Porto had lost their confidence.

Magnus Andersson needs to change a lot of things or Porto might not even see the play-offs.
