Watch Sanusi’s First Champions League Goal As Porto Beat Marseille

Loading...

FC Porto took a great step towards qualifying for the knock out stages of the UEFA Champions League following a 2-0 win over Olympique Marseille with Zaidu Sanusi among the scorers.

Sanusi, a summer signing from Santa Clara, opened the scoring for Porto at the Orange Vélodrome six minutes before half-time.

The Nigerian international fired home from close range after the French side’s defence failed to deal with a corner.

It was Sanusi’s first goal for Porto in four Champions League appearances. The 23-year-old is proving to be a shrewd signing for the Portuguese champions following his brilliant start to the season.

In Wednesday’s clash, the 23-year-old was brilliant defensively and going forward. He made seven successful interceptions while he also had an 80% pass accuracy.

It did not only end there as he managed four shots with one on target while he made three successful tackles.

A Sergio Oliveira penalty in the 72nd minute doubled Porto’s advantage and it stayed like that until the rest of the match.
