The match started evenly but Malaga slowly began taking over events & the Football. The Spanish team was more determined & more ambitious with excellent contributions in all the positions especially Joaquin, Saviola, Toulalan, Wellington & Isco. 

It was the Malaga youngster Isco who pulled a "rabbit out of the hat" with a superbly created & executed goal in the 43rd min that put Malaga into the tie. Then a red card to Porto player Defour left the Portuguese down to 10 men & Malaga with spaces & the advantage exploited the situation to advance.

The Portuguese held out bravely the Malaga attacks & even created chances for themselves but a corner header from Roque Santa Cruz ( who came on for Baptista ) in the 77th min put Malaga ahead in the tie. Porto reacted to attempt to find the one goal they needed to go through but were stopped by off-sides & the Malaga defence / goalkeeper Willy Caballero.
