Substitute Sergio Aguero hit a dramatic late Europa League winner as Manchester City came from behind to beat holders Porto 2-1 in the first leg of the last 32 clash Thursday night.
City trailed to Silvestre Varela’s close range effort following a powerful run and cross by Hulk.
But the visitors impressed and deservedly equalised when Alvaro Pereira deflected Yaya Toure’s cross into his own net via his shoulder.
They sealed victory when Aguero tapped home following Toure’s cross, and brighten their chances of progressing to the round of 16.
