Oguchi Onyewu wasn’t in the squad for Malaga’s turnaround in their Champions League Round of 16 series with Porto. With Porto up a goal from the first leg, Malaga equalized on aggregate when Isco scored in the 43rd minute. The referee sent off Porto’s Steven Defour in the 49th minute. Malaga’s Roque Santa Cruz entered the game in the 74th minute and won the series on aggregate with a 77th minute goal.
“We back from a disappointing game in Portugal, although FC Porto’s goal was clearly offside,” Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini said. “We intend to keep on playing the best football we can and continue on in the Champions League.”
