I doubt FC Porto can go through the group stage. After this embarassing result they're in 3rd place. Diamo Kiev is in second place. FC Porto is supposed to be the strongest, best team in the Portuguese league. It cannot win a Champions League game at home? Not to mention it couldn't score one goal?

It has two losses and one win and that gives FC Porto only 3 points.

English translation, O Jogo
They have to win in Ukraine in order to get to the next stage
Jesualdo: 'This team has to grow in the competition'
Lucho: 'We can win anywhere'

FC Porto does enough in the Portuguese league, but does not do enough in the Champions League.
