APOEL Stun Porto 2-1; Top Champions League Group G

Apoel Nicosia won the Europa League holders, Porto (2-1). Apoel remain top of Group G and move closer to becoming the first Cypriot team to reach the Champions League last 16.

Gustavo Manduca’s goal gave the hosts the three points and sent Cypriots in dreamland just moments after Hulk’s penalty had canceled out Ailton’s first-half finish from the spot.

The two teams had appeared to be heading for 1-1 draw. APOEL first scored in the 42nd when Brazilian striker Ailton Almeida also converted a penalty.

Apoel, rank outsiders before the competition began, lead the group by a point from Zenit St Petersburg with two matches left and a win away to the Russian club on 23 November will send them to the knockout stages and guarantee them top spot.
