RB Leipzig's debut Champions League campaign over after Besiktas defeat

Cenk Tosun

Vincent Aboubakar struck two first-half goals to spearhead Porto's emphatic 5-2 win over Monaco at the Dragao Stadium on Wednesday and seal their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Kamil Glik and Radamel Falcao scored for the visitors, but they were unable to execute a comeback.

The Turkish outfit has won both away games so far in this season's competition, running out 3-1 winners at Porto on matchday one and 2-1 in Monaco.

Napoli have been knocked out of the contest and will now play in the Europa League.

Aboubakar took advantage of the Ligue 1 champions' pedestrian defending to score twice inside the opening 33 minutes before Felipe and Rachid Ghezzal were sent off following a clash in the centre circle.

"We're the only Portuguese team into the last 16".

"This record makes me very, very proud", he said after the game.

Kaiser not only created a club record in doing so but - by making his first appearance in Europe this season - he also rounded off a fairytale rise from the German fourth tier to the Champions League.

Only four sides managed to complete the group stage without a loss, Liverpool, Tottenham and Barcelona.

Just three minutes later, Talisca scored the last goal of the match and the Black Eagles left the field with another three points. "Our adversaries were not that much superior to us", claimed Benfica coach Rui Vitória, but the numbers suggest otherwise and if the 4-time Liga NOS champions fail to react domestically, the manager's position will start to come under intense scrutiny. "Do you want me to speak with or without my mask", quipped Fonseca, before saying: "I think not only the Shakhtar supporters, but all Ukrainians should be proud of this team". Save some of those for Russia Ron...
