TEHRAN – Iran’s Mehdi Taremi has scored twice to put Porto in the UEFA Champions League last 16 as it defeated Club Brugge 4-0 in Belgium.
Taremi’s contribution, as well as Evanilson and Stephen Eustaquio’s second-half goals, helped Porto gain revenge for a defeat by the same scoreline when the two sides first met in Group B in September.
Atletico head to Portugal next Tuesday as the Bayer Leverkusen hosts Brugge, already qualified, in the final round of group matches.
Taremi scored in the 33rd and 70th minutes.
Evanilson was on target in the 57th minute and Eustaquio scored in the 60th minute.
