A goal in the 11th minute of stoppage-time by Antoine Griezmann earned Atletico Madrid a 2-1 home win over 10-man Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday.

This was after a frantic end to the match with all the goals coming in added time.

With the sides meeting in the competition’s opening group fixture for the second year in a row, they were locked together at 0-0 as the game went into added time.

Atletico defender Mario Hermoso opened the scoring when his deflected shot from the edge of the box left Porto keeper Diogo Costa helpless.
