Porto defender Eder Militao showed exactly why Real Madrid wanted him in a Champions League clash against Liverpool on Wednesday night.
The Primeira Liga giants crashed out of Europe at the hands of the Reds after a 4-1 defeat at Estadio do Dragao, with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk grabbing the goals for the visitors.
Jurgen Klopp’s men progressed 6-1 on aggregate having also won the first leg at Anfield 2-0 and they will now move on to face Barcelona in the last four.
There was, however, one bright spark for Porto on an otherwise disappointing evening, as Militao scored a bullet header in the 68th minute which flew past Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson and into the net.
