Nicolo Zaniolo strikes twice for AS Roma to beat FC Porto

AS Roma Italian midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo

Two goals from teenager Nicolo Zaniolo earned AS Roma a 2-1 win against FC Porto in their UEFA Champions League last 16 first leg fixture on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old continued his superb breakthrough season by finding the net twice in six second half minutes to become the youngest Italian to score two goals in a Champions League match.

FC Porto substitute Adrian Lopez, however, quickly responded with what could prove to be a crucial away goal.

The result ended a five-match winning run in Europe for FC Porto, who will welcome Roma to the Estadio do Dragao for the second leg on March 6.
