Aboubakar who has scored 15 goals this season will be looking to help Porto with another positive result when they face Vitória Setúbal in Sunday's Portuguese top-flight encounter.

The victory took Porto to 10 points behind group winners Besiktas, who moved on to 14 after their 2-1 win at RB Leipzig ensured the German newcomers missed out in third place on seven points.

"I congratulate the players", he told reporters.

The goal came three minutes after the Bundesliga side, already down to 10 men, thought they had escaped defeat against the odds with a fine Naby Keita goal.

Obviously, the biggest teams want to sign the biggest stars, and many of them turn out in the Champions League - Europe's premier cup competition.


Monaco captain Kamil Glik pulled one back with a 61st-minute penalty, given harshly for a handball from Ivan Marcano, but Porto's Brazilian fullback Alex Telles thundered home a 25-metre shot four minutes later.

"This record makes me very, very proud", he said after the game. "It is a night that will be remembered, for sure".

Napoli, who drop into the Europa League, had made a blistering start in their bid to stay in contention with Piotr Zielinski opening the scoring in the second minute. It's like my home.

Falcao said he believes Monaco, who are third in Ligue 1 and nine points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain, can recover from their hard start to the season.

Dominik Kaiser has become RB Leipzig's record appearance holder after completing a remarkable journey from regional amateur football to the UEFA Champions League. "We are capable of finishing second in the league in order to return to this competition".
