Barcelona vs Porto UCL 2023-24 Highlights| Barcelona beat Port 2-1; Qualify for the round of 16 with one game to go

    Barcelona qualify for round of 16 first time since Messi left the club

    This is the first time FC Barcelona qualify for the round of 16 of UCL in last three seasons. In the last two seasons Xavi failed to take the team pass the group stage as a manager. There were doubts about him as a coach on the grandest stage of club football. But Barcelona had faith in him.

    A brilliant comeback by the team to show the character, the passion and the hunger to go for the glory. Cancelo was just outstanding tonight with skill to go from defensive to offensive on the left side. Along with him it was Jaoo Felix who would be one of the most relieved men in that dressing room. A fast goal since his last 12 games would obviously give him the confidence for the next round.

    Obviously still a lot of work to be done for Xavi and his team but for now on it's relief for them.

    "First of all let's recognise Porto's quality. They pressed us well but it was clear that in the second half we improved a lot... It's demanding here at Barcelona. Sometimes we don't play as well as we'd like but I think today the importance of the game was huge and we really responded. When we went behind I think that we reacted really well. To fight back and win is important."

    Kounde

    "The goal was important for the team. In football, a player can very suddenly go from best to worst and the opposite can also happen. I go into every game trying to do my best. If the goal comes, all the better, if it doesn't, the important thing is to help my team-mates."

    João Félix
