Barcelona defeated Porto 1-0 away at the Estadio do Dragao, with Ferran Torres scoring the only goal of the game.

Porto manager Sergio Conceicao was unhappy after the game, and slammed the referee for his decision-making.

Conceicao seemed to also accuse Barcelona of having refereeing favours.

Conceicao said: “I have already answered about it in the flash interviews, I don’t know if three or four [decisions that went against us].

“We played against ‘more than a club’. And that is all I have to say.”

The term ‘more than a club’ is Barcelona’s motto, but Conceicao took a swipe at the club indirectly.

Conceicao is probably saying that the referee waved off Porto’s penalty shouts. However, in the second half, the ref was quick to point to the spot after a perceived handball by Cancelo – VAR overturned the decision.
