Conceição: Lautaro should be suspended for the second leg
Porto held on well and parried at "Giuseppe Meazza" and had two great chances to create a cold shower, but after failing to do so, they conceded a goal in the very end after remaining with one player less.
Ottavio ended the game early due to a red card and Porto played the last 12 minutes of the regular part with 10 players, a setup that Romelu Lukaku took advantage of in the 86th minute.
The Portuguese return to their home with a minimal defeat and desire to chase a turnaround in the second leg, on which they will not be able to count on Otavio who is very important for the balance in the game of Porto.
CHAMPIONS LEAGUEConceição: Lautaro should be suspended for the second leg
Coach Conceição said after the defeat that Inter earned a deserved victory in the end, but he did not fail to emphasize that Lautaro Martinez should have received a yellow card for the start over Pepe, which would have meant a suspension for the round of 16 rematch.
– In the end, I think the result is fair. Inter was intense in the last 10 minutes and it was very difficult for us. Ottavio received a red card, he deserved it, but there were also Inter players who should have received warnings. I am convinced that Lautaro should have received a yellow card for the start over Pepe. He should be suspended for the second leg, but unfortunately that won't be the case due to the referee's decision.
