On the other hand, as the home team, Porto had a high level of confidence. However, this confidence drained away right at the 6th minute when the ball went to Ronaldo after Anderson’s pass in the middle of the field. 

After correcting the ball for a moment, he saw no teammates to coordinate. Finally, this Portuguese footballer decided to shoot the ball into the far corner of the goal from a distance of 35 meters with tremendous speed. 

Porto’s goalkeeper could do nothing but see the ball go into the net hopelessly. It was also the only goal of the match that helped Man United to reach the semi-final of the tournament.
