AC Milan’s Primavera side were defeated for the second time in their third UEFA Youth League game, this time losing 3-1 against Porto at the Vila Nova de Gaia.
The Rossoneri essentially lost the game either side of the break as a goal from Sousa late in the first half was followed up by Candé doubling the advantage early in the second period.
Roback’s goal in the second half reopened the game and provoked in a strong Rossoneri reaction, and Rossi’s header in the 82nd minute should have been the equaliser, but Dabo’s late goal sealed the game.
