MONACO (Reuters) – AS Monaco’s Champions League campaign suffered a huge blow as last season’s semi-finalists fell victim to a Vincent Aboubakar double in a 3-0 home defeat by Porto on Tuesday. Cameroon striker Aboubakar scored in each half and Miguel Layun rounded off the win in the closing stages to put Porto second in Group G with three points from two games, three behind leaders Besiktas who won 2-0 at home to Leipzig. Monaco are third with Leipzig bottom also on one point. The French principality team had a few chances early in the game as they piled on the pressure but Porto stayed calm and were more clinical in a lively encounter at Stade Louis II.
