The Portuguese star became the joint all-time Champions League appearance holder on his 177th appearance in the competition and scored after 13 minutes on a terrific pass from his fellow countryman Bruno Fernandes.
The turning point of the match was Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s dangerous challenge on Christopher Martins which earned the defender a straight red card in the 35th minute.
Moumi Ngamaleu scored the equalizer in the 66th minute and when all thought that both teams will win a point, Jesse Lingard made a mistake and allowed Jordan Siebatcheu to score the winner for the Swiss team.
