Malaga's UEFA Champions League run has extended into the quarter-finals after goals from Isco and Roque Santa Cruz put the hosts past Porto 2-1 on aggregate.
The UEFA Champions League group stage began in exciting fashion as big-spending Paris Saint-Germain cruised, with Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund also victorious, while Real Madrid edged Manchester City in a glamour match-up.
Goals at the end of each half proved enough for Porto to open their UEFA Champions League campaign in style with a 2-0 win at Dinamo Zagreb.
A history of trials and tribulations has not stopped Standard Liege from recording ten league titles and six national cups as well as maintaining their place at the forefront of Belgian football.
Porto look to bounce back from midweek disappointment at Beira-Mar, while Pablo Aimar is out to inspire Benfica to victory away to a Maritimo side spearheaded by the in-form Baba, as the league title battle intensifies.
FC Porto have completed the signings of Standard Liege pair Steven Defour and Eliaquim Mangala, bringing them to Portugal for a combined fee of €13m.
