Portuguese club Porto achieved a surprise and defeated Juventus 2-1 in the first leg of the European Champions League final, and Borussia Dortmund returned with a precious victory from the Spanish stadium of Seville 3-2 thanks to the brilliant Erling Haaland.

Porto was the best party in the match, and his players almost scored more goals in light of the lackluster performance of Juventus, whose players' experience contributed to hijacking the goal to reduce the difference, which may help him return in the second leg.

Iranian Mahdi Taremi opened the scoring for Porto, who won the title in 1987 and 2004, in the first minute of the match, and his Malian colleague Moussa Mariga added the second goal in the 46th minute, exactly 20 seconds after the start of the second half.

Federico Chiesa scored Juventus' only goal in the 82nd minute.
