‘Tecatito’ usually plays as a winger, but the head coach Sergio Conceiçao has started using him, when needed, as a right-back and he keeps performing at a very high level. On Wednesday night, Porto hosted Juventus for the first leg round of 16 UEFA Champions League tie and the Mexican international played 89 minutes.

The Portuguese team defeated Juventus 2-1 and ‘Tecatito’ was involved in the second goal that was scored by Moussa Marega in the second half. The second leg will be played in Turin on 9 March.
