US soccer player Oguchi Onyewu wasn’t involved in Malaga’s 1-0 opening leg loss to Porto in their Champions League Round of 16 series. Porto’s Joao Moutinho scored the game’s only goal in the 56th minute at Estadio do Dragao. Malaga finished with no shots on goal to Porto’s five. Porto had the bulk of the corners, 11 to 2.
“We’re not particularly pleased with our performance, as we didn’t play well at all, particularly on the attack,” Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini said. “Despite Porto’s dominance of the match, they didn’t really cause a lot of trouble for Willy Caballero, and I think that their goal was actually offside. If we return to our usual style of play, I think we can turn things around at home.”
