BASEL, Switzerland (AP) — Danilo's late goal from the penalty spot secured a 1-1 draw for Porto at Basel on Wednesday as the two clubs fought for a berth in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The Brazilian defender equalized with 11 minutes to play in the last 16, first leg match after a handball decision against Walter Samuel.
Derlis Gonzalez put the Swiss team ahead in the 11th, connecting with a long pass from Fabian Frei and beating two defenders before slotting the ball past Fabiano. In recent seasons Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Liverpool have all lost at St. Jakob-Park.
The Paraguayan's goal was a rare chance for Basel against a dominant opponent and provides a slender advantage ahead of the return leg on March 10.
