And that’s it! A famous Porto win. They take a 3-1 advantage to Munich next Tuesday. Can’t wait. Thanks for joining us tonight.

Desperate tackles flying in from the Porto defence as Bayern press. Great take from Fabiano from Bernat’s cross.

CLOSE! Lavezzi breaks free into the area but can't get a shot away. It drops for Cavani who sees his goalbound attempt blocked. Big, big moment that as PSG's hopes evaporate once more.

Another hopeful Bayern ball into the box is hooked clear and we’re into the final minute of normal time.

So Quaresma’s work is done for the evening, and what a job he has done. Two goals in the opening ten minutes that could take his side to another semi-final. Five minutes to go...

Another bad night at the office for Luiz.

GOAL! Do PSG have a lifeline? Probably not, but it's something to cheer for the home support. Gregory van der Wiel fires the ball back into the area and sees it deflect off Mathieu and into the net.

GOAL! Suarez gets his second and Barca's third with a sweeping shot into the top corner after exchanging a one-two and nutmegging Luiz en route to goal.

TEN MINITES REMAINING: And Porto would certainly take this as it stands and that would set up a cracking return leg.

79' 
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto

Good run from Rode and he wins Bayern a free kick that Robben would love to take. He’s not on the pitch, so it goes short and the chance peters out.

77' 
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto

Dangerous run from Thiago driving into the box and he wins his side a corner. He takes himself but Porto clear the danger.

Barca trying to shut up shop and let the front three see if they can completely finish the job off in the dying moments as PSG are forced to commit men forward.

Bayern just lacking that cutting edge. Simple crosses being cut out. Looking a little desperate already.

Could be a frantic final 20 minutes here as Porto look to maintain this two goal advantage and bayern try for that crucial second away goal.

67'

FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain - FC Barcelona

GOAL! Barca double their lead and it's all Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan shows bewitching skill to outfox Luiz on the right before shimmying beyond Marquinhos and tucking a shot beyond Sirigu at his near post.

67' 
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto

Bayern only have themselves to blame tonight. It has been three defensive howlers. So uncharacteristic.

Porto back where they want to be and this would really give them something to defend. Rode lets fly and Fabiano makes a good save. Great game.

GOAL! And it’s a third for Porto! Martinez pounces on another mistake from Boateng, who misses his header, and takes it past neuer before slotting home!

Quaresma plays it in but it evades everyone and driftds out for a goal kick. Nobody gambling on attacking the ball.

Iniesta update.

60'

A Barca corner is sluggishly dealt with by the hosts, allowing Neymar to get a sniff of goal. The Brazilian tries a scissor kick but sees his attempt cannon back off a defender.

62' 
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto

Herrera caught right on the edge of the box from Boateng and another dangerous position for Porto.

Lovely ball from Rode played in for Lewandowski and his shot is well saved. He’s flagged just offside but mightily close...

Lovely combination between Alba and Neymar on the left almost tees up a chance for Messi on the edge of the area, but Cabaye is there to mop it up.

57'

WHAT A SAVE! Great early ball in from Quaresma and Herrera clips it goalbound just for Neuer to somehow get a hand on it and divert it over.

56' 
Paris Saint-Germain - FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain

FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain - FC Barcelona

Suarez flings himself to the floor as he tries to chest down Pique's lofted pass forward. The referee has seen that all before from his Liverpool days and waves for play to go on.

55' 
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto
3 - 1

Oportunistic chance from Casemiro who sees Neuer off his line and goes for a Charlie Adam lob but the keeper is back in time.

FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain - FC Barcelona

Boos for Iniesta as play is stopped for him to receive more treatment. The home crowd believe they have the momentum and the Spain ace is trying to halt it.

52' 
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto

More sloppy defending from Alonso who takes a really bad touch and Martinez is almost in! Just manages to hack it clear at the last.

50'

FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain - FC Barcelona

SAVE! Javier Pastore fizzes in a low drive that bounces just in front of ter Stegen. The Barca keeper does well to judge the flight of the ball and push it to safety.

50' 
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto
3 - 1

Two strong challenges from Bernat already in this second half. Must be careful as already on a yellow from the previous game.

 
48' 
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto
3 - 1

Muller penalised for a foul on Casemiro. Just a free kick, no card as there looked to be minimal contact.

Just a reminder for shellshocked Bayern fans just joining us, no Schweinsteiger, Ribery or Robben for the Germans tonight.

We’re back underway here at Estadio do Dragao. The second half will have to go some to be as good as the first…

 
45+1' 
Paris Saint-Germain - FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain

FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain - FC Barcelona

Matuidi gets to the left byline and wins a late corner. Barca half clear the set piece and when the ball is returned Cavani is flagged offside as he attempts a wayward acrobatic volley.

44' 
Paris Saint-Germain - FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain
1 - 3
FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain - FC Barcelona

A knock to Sirigu would be a blow, but half time is close and you'd expect the keeper to be back again in the second half.

43' 
Paris Saint-Germain - FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain
1 - 3
FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain - FC Barcelona

Barcelona avert the danger from the set piece. Another PSG attack comes to nothing and they are almost made to pay as Suarez breaks and tries a curler from the left of the area. In the end the effort is weak and the home outfit survive. Some dodgy defending by Luiz in the lead up to that chance!

44'
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto

CHANCE PORTO! Porto force a late free kick after a Lahm hand ball. In it goes from Quaresma but Casemiro heads over!

Both teams keeping hold of the ball well as this pulsating half draws to a close. Time for one last chance perhaps...

Dangerous cross from Lahm is inviting for Lewandowski but he can’t get enough on it and Fabiano has it.

No surprise re. the possession stats. Barca dominant.

Now Lahm goes into the book as he stretches into a tackle from behind on Casemiro. Looked harsh as minimal contact.

Better from the hosts. Maxwell motors down the left and arcs a lovely ball into the box for Cavani whose flick-volley at the near post doesn't have enough power on it to trouble ter Stegen.

35' 
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto

Ten minutes to half time and this really has been a cracking cup tie. You felt Porto needed that early goal blitz as now bayern are in the ascendancy.

34'

Cross from Sandro is tipped onto the crossbar by Neuer and nearly a third bizarre goal! More of a cross than a shot but the keeper was alove to the danger.

33'

Porto need to find a way to get back into what they were doing well early on. Bayern with all the possession and the pressure now on the other foot.

You would think a 2-1 away defeat would be a good result but that’s not the way Bayern will be thinking. Casemiro booked for a challenge on Thiago.

29'
Paris Saint-Germain - FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain
1 - 3
FC BarcelonaParis Saint-Germain - FC Barcelona

A supreme break from a Barca corner almost sees PSG get level. Matuidi and Lavezzi combine on the left to free Cavani whose first touch is too heavy and he can't quite slide a pass into the area. Great recovery from Mascherano. Cavani could well have had a clear shot at goal if his touch had been better.

30' 
FC Porto - Bayern MunichFC Porto

That was Thiago’s first Champions League goal and he did well to hook it past Fabiano from behind him. Who are in the driving seat now?

29'

GOAL! And Bayern Munich are back in the game as Boateng’s cross goes all the way across the box for Thiago to hook home!

Bayern force a corner. Alonso takes but Maicon heads clear. Alonso takes again and Sandro angain nods behind. Good defending from Porto.

Will Luiz's hamstring hold up? He's had barely any recovery time since the injury.

Here's the Porto second.

23'

A rare foray forward for PSG sees Lavezzi float a ball into the area towards Cavani but ter Stegen reads it and comes off his line to claim.

23'

Bayern really struggling to get any rhythm. Porto as resolute in defence as they are dangerous going forward. Mightily impressive so far.

Now Martinez finds space on the edge of the box and shoots over the bar. Have seen them go in before from the striker. Not far away from 3-0!

OFF THE POST! Suarez clips a lovely pass to Messi on the edge of the area. The Argentine steadies himself and curls a delicious 20-yard effort that beats Salvatore Sirigu - but not the post! Unlucky.

STAT: These two teams have already met twice in the quarterfinals of the European Cup/Champions League, with FC Bayern München progressing in both occasions (1990/91 and 1999/00).

Intricate play from Barca in and around the PSG area. Messi's first-time ball looks to free Alba but the full back is challenged out of it. Goal kick is the decision. Should have been a corner.

11'

Guardiola’s side just can’t live with this early Porto pace and seem to have taken them too lightly. Two amazing defensive lapses and now they really have their work cut out.

Barcelona have not won a European game away to French opponents since October 2001 against Lyon. Since that date, the Spanish have drawn three games and lost one.

GOAL PORTO! Amazing scenes here as Dante dallies on the ball and Quaresma nips it off him, closes on goal and slots a second past Neuer! What a start from the hosts.

A great opening for PSG goes begging. Blaise Matuidi sweeps down the left and cuts it back for Maxwell who completely miscues from eight yards out.

CHANCE BAYERN! And Lewandowski surely should equalise from Muller’s knock down but puts his header over.

Their main man may be missing but it may not be all bad for PSG. The French side have lost none of the 17 games this season (all competitions) where Zlatan Ibrahimovic has not been in the starting eleven, winning 12 and drawing five.

Barcelona will play the Champions League quarterfinals stage for the 18th time in their history: Luis Enrique’s side have progressed 9 times, including seven of the last eight times they’ve reached this round. On the other hand, PSG have stepped into this stage three times previously, failing to progress in the last two editions of the competition (2012/13 and 2013/14).

TEN MINUTES TO KICK-OFF: Porto are unbeaten in nine consecutive European home games, winning six of the last seven matches played on their soil. However, Bayern have lost only two of their last 15 games in European competitions on the road (W10, D3), and failed to find the net only twice in the last 18 away matches.

Thomas Mueller: "For the (recent) games against Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen we had two matches where we played with a decimated squad and with few options. In those games we came closer together as a group, as a unit, and that will obviously help us against Porto. Now it is not about the injuries but about building a strong unit on the pitch with the players who are there. We are confident and hopefully we can score a few goals."

Luis Enrique: "Alves is an important player for us, as evidenced by the amount of minutes he plays. However, we have a large squad and the options I have available to me offer me reassurances that Dani Alves' absence will not condition how we play. I like everything about my team; that’s why we are where we are."

Julen Lopetegui: "Ambition and imagination are two words we have in mind. I'd like to remind everyone that we didn't win a ticket to this competition - we had to earn it through the play-offs. We are here, proud and happy to be playing among the best teams in Europe at this stage of the Champions League. We want to be the best performers tomorrow while maintaining respect for our opponents. We are talking about one of the best Bayern sides in the club's history. Bayern have injuries but will still have seven or eight world champions on the pitch. We don't care about the players they don't have. We have to focus on the ones that will play."

Pep Guardiola: "I am surprised with their level and we will need two good games to reach the semi-finals. They play an open game ... they have physical midfielders but with great quality. That is also their biggest asset. Their individual quality." Guardiola added there was no point talking about the Bayern injuries, saying he would simply try his best with the players at his disposal. The last two weeks we talked about this a lot but we have this situation and we are here with these 14 players and we will try our best. That's what it is and I won't complain."

The two teams have met regularly recently in the Champions League, with PSG beating Barca 3-2 at home in a Group F game this season before losing 3-1 at the Nou Camp.

He knows we are a team that needs to know what we are about, our weaknesses and our strengths, but above all our weaknesses so we can then implement our qualities. We don't have the options that Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern (Munich) or Chelsea have, we cannot drop points and make up for them later. We are a team that plays at our limit."

Massimiliano Allegri: "Our target is to get through this round and reach the semi-finals, and if we qualify 1-0 or 1-1 (on aggregate), that's all the same to me. It could be a boring game, the important thing is not to concede a goal at home. The tie against Monaco is much more complicated than the one against Dortmund. They are two very different teams, the French side concede few goals and it's always more complicated to play against a team that doesn't go forward very often. It's tempting to go forward ourselves and there is the risk of leaving spaces for them. We need patience, humility and intelligence, and to realise that we are not going to settle qualification in Turin. I think they (Monaco) have richly deserved to get to the quarter final."

The Italian maestro is joined in the starting xi by Carlos Tevez, who has been rested recently. The former Man City striker will partner Alvaro Morata in attack. However, Paul Pogba is out injured. As for Monaco, Jeremy Toulalan is only fit enough for the bench with Fabinho taking his spot. Ricardo Carvalho starts instead of Wallace while Anthony Martial is preferred to Dimitar Berbatov in attack.

The French outfit shaded into the quarter finals by the skin of their teeth. A shock 3-1 win at Arsenal put them in a strong position to progress, but the Gunners hit back in the second leg and came close to a stunning turnaround before bowing out on away goals. That defeat aside, Monaco's success in Europe this term has been based upon a solid defence. They have scored just seven times in eight outings but have only conceded four. On the domestic front, Monaco still have a slim chance of winning Ligue 1 after a slow start to the campaign. They are four points adrift of leaders PSG who have played a game less.

Monaco will be looking for another UEFA Champions League upset in the first leg of their quarter-final tie with Juventus.

Juventus have their sights on the treble. They face Lazio in the final of the Coppa Italia and are a stonking 22 points clear at the top of Serie A with eight games to play. They are, however, still mortal as proved by the surprise weekend loss to bottom of the table Parma. That's what Monaco will be telling themselves, but just one defeat in 16 European matches since the opening of the Juventus stadium for the Old Lady tells another story of the challenge facing the visitors.

Since Real’s victory in last year’s Champions League final, Diego Simeone's side has had the upper hand in the Madrid clashes. Atletico beat Real to win the season's Super Cup curtain-raiser, knocked them out of the Copa del Rey and defeated them in both La Liga clashes. The manner of their 4-0 demolition of Real in February's league meeting even led to questions about the future of coach Carlo Ancelotti.
