Malaga beats Porto, advances in Champions League
MALAGA, Spain (AP) -- MALAGA, Spain (AP) -Malaga became the third Spanish team to reach this year's Champions League quarterfinals by beating 10-man Porto 2-0 on Wednesday to overturn a first-leg deficit.
Porto led 1-0 from the first leg but Malaga's 20-year-old forward Francisco "Isco'' Alarcon leveled the series in the 43rd minute by scoring with a high, curling shot that beat goalkeeper Helton and went into the far top corner.
Roque Santa Cruz got the decisive second when he rose to head a corner into the far post in the 77th.
Porto's Steven Defour was sent off after receiving a second yellow card for a late challenge on Joaquin Sanchez in the 49th minute.
