Great pressure from Porto and Roma can't get the ball out of their half.
They've said play on! Porto survive a penalty scare, soft as it may have been.
The corner comes to nothing - or does it? We have more VAR drama.
Three added minutes.
Pepe makes a vital block to deny Roma, but the visitors have a corner.
The home fans are in great voice - do Roma have a response?
- Goal by penaltyAlex TellesFC Porto
GOAL! Porto 3-1 Roma (4-3 agg). Telles sends the goalkeeper the wrong way and Porto look to heading to the quarter-finals.
PENALTY! Florenzi pulled his man back - even though he likely wasn't getting to the ball - and the referee has awarded a penalty.
Pereira fires a shot across the face of goal. Fernando went down at the back post, possibly with some help, and we're heading to VAR.
A terrible miss from Dzeko again! Cristante finds him with a lovely ball and Dzeko decides to take a touch and then chip the goalie, only to put too much loft on the ball and allow a covering defender to get back and hack clear.
What a chance - wasted! Dzeko cuts inside Felipe and has only the goalkeeper to beat, 10 yards out, but blazes over!
Dzeko gets on the end of the next corner, heading harmlessly wide.
Manolas rises highest at a Roma corner but heads onto the head of Danilo. We'll try again.
We're back underway.
HT in ET: Porto 2-1 Roma (agg 3-3). A couple of half-chances in that period but both teams are struggling to get anything going.
Fernando kicks a bit of everything - ball, corner flag, Nzonzi - as the two battle for the ball. It's become that kind of game.
- OffEder MilitaoFC Porto
- OnMaxi PereiraFC Porto
Pereira comes on for Militao, who will be haunted about that penalty if Porto go out.
Marega crosses in the general direct of Fernando, who is eased out of the ball's path by Manolas. The home fans want a VAR intervention but even that won't help.
Perotti does well to keep the ball in play and cuts it back to Zaniolo, 10 yards out, whose effort is blocked. Young Zaniolo has been a peripheral figure for most of the game.
Porto win a free-kick just inside the Roma half and send the big men forward as Telles yet again takes. It's headed behind and the resultant corner eventually ends up in Olsen's arms.
- OffLorenzo PellegriniAS Roma
- OnPatrik SchickAS Roma
Schick is his replacement, adding another attacker to the mix.
Pellegrini is down and clutching at his right hamstring.
Telles gets past Florenzi and crosses to the near post, where Marega swings at leg at it but can't keep the shot down.
- OffOtavioFC Porto
- OnHernani SantosFC Porto
Indeed here one is. Harnani comes on for Otavio.
No more changes for either team yet, although both look tired so expect one sooner rather than later.
Porto get extra time started.
FT: Porto 2-1 Roma (3-3 agg). To extra time we go.
Porto once again can't capitalise on a free-kick in a good position.
Three added minutes.
Kolarov fires it straight into the wall.
Just as I type that, Dzeko goes on a forward run and wins a free-kick around 25 yards from goal. Kolarov fancies this.
Extra time is starting to feel inevitable.
Fernando hacks a shot into the stands when crossing was the far better option.
Olsen beats away an Otavio shot with relative ease. He's actually had a decent game.
Roma are given a huge chance as Pepe carelessly gives the ball to Perotti, who has Zaniolo begging for a pass and unmarked, but he selfishly shoots and shoots wide.
- Yellow cardLorenzo PellegriniAS Roma
Pellegrini is booked for colliding with Telles.
Brahimi is convinced he's won a penalty but the officials don't agree.
- OffTiquinho SoaresFC Porto
- OnFernandoFC Porto
Fernando on for Tiquinho.
Brahimi ghosts towards the Roma goal and nobody sees him except Otavio, who finds the Algerian with a lovely ball, and Brahimi has a sighting at goal from within 10 yards. He can't beat Olsen though, shooting weakly and straight at the goalkeeper.
- OffIván MarcanoAS Roma
- OnBryan CristanteAS Roma
Cristante comes on for Mercano, which presumably means a change of system and four at the back to Roma.
Telles sends in another cross and this time it's Manolas who heads behind.
Telles does well to stop Dzeko getting on the end of a cross.
Marega wins a free-kick near the corner flag but it's well defended by Roma.
- OffJesús CoronaFC Porto
- OnYacine BrahimiFC Porto
Corona, who has had a quieter second half but will feel unlucky to be taken off, makes way for Brahimi.
Dzeko, who has seen little of the ball in an attacking sense, makes a little room for himself - perhaps 30 yards from goal - and drags a shot wide. Perotti wanted a pass.
An out-swinging Porto corner is met by Felipe but his downward header loops over the bar.
A Telles cross is headed away and drops to Danilo, 25 yards out, but his shot is weak and comfortably saved by Olsen.
The game has lost all of its rhythm in the last 10 minutes and is becoming very petty.
- Yellow cardEdin DzekoAS Roma
Dzeko is far from happy about it though.
- Yellow cardPepeFC Porto
Dzeko and Pepe go head-to-head, like to stags rutting, and Dzeko flops to the floor. Both are booked and that's smart refereeing.
- OffRick KarsdorpAS Roma
- OnAlessandro FlorenziAS Roma
And Karsdorp is swiftly removed, with Florenzi coming on.
- Yellow cardRick KarsdorpAS Roma
Karsdorp is booked for a silly tackle that saw come come through the back of Corona.
A great cross but poor defending, with Marega left in far too much space. He's now scored in six consecutive Champions League games.
- GoalMoussa MarégaFC Porto
GOAL! Porto 2-1 Roma. Just a few seconds after Olsen produced an impressive save, Corona whips in a splendid cross after cutting in from the left wing and there's nothing the goalkeeper can do as an unmarked Marega volleys in at the far post.
Militao is in plenty of space down the right and his cross is helped on by Marega and into the path of Tiquinho, but he has little time to react and can't find the target with his head.
Dzeko gives the ball away cheaply but Porto don't make him pay, giving it away cheaply themselves.
Roma start the second period brightly, just as they did the first.
The game gets back underway.
HT: Porto 1-1 Roma. De Rossi's penalty means that Roma remain ahead on aggregate, having weathered something of an early Porto storm.
- OffDaniele De RossiAS Roma
- OnLorenzo PellegriniAS Roma
Indeed De Rossi can't continue. Pellegrini is on in his place.
Meanwhile, De Rossi hobbles off and looks like he won't be returning for the second half.
- Yellow cardDanilo PereiraFC Porto
Danilo is booked for dissent by a referee who is not afraid to make himself the centre of attention.
Two added minutes to what has been an interesting first half.
There's an appeal for handball after a ball is dinked towards Tiquinho - nothing given - but the rebound falls to Herrera, who stings Olsen's palms with a well-hit effort.
Corona continues to have joy down the Porto left, this time overhitting his cross after finding space.
Porto need to re-group now. It was a soft penalty, but a penalty none the less. Can they respond before the half-time break?
- Goal by penaltyDaniele De RossiAS Roma
GOAL! Porto 1-1 Roma. De Rossi stutters in his run-up, sees what way Casillas is leaning and slots the ball the other side. A great, cool penalty and Roma are back ahead.
PENALTY! Perotti cuts into the Porto box and runs across Militao, who leaves a leg hanging and invites the Roma to go down.
Tiquinho unleashes a curling effort from range but Olsen gets his body behind it.
Marega wins a Porto corner and this time it's their turn to waste the opportunity, and almost present Roma with one in the process.
Another Roma corner comes to nothing.
Perotti's deep cross comes all the way to Dzeko, who volleys from a tight angle and sees his effort deflected behind.
As it stands, Porto would advance on away goals.
The VAR check is done and the goal stands.
- GoalTiquinho SoaresFC Porto
GOAL! Porto 0-1 Roma. Porto have the lead! Marega wins the ball off Manolas and that starts a Porto counter-attack that sees Corona carry the ball into the box and slip it to Marega, who squares for Tiquinho to tap in.
Corona has been taking up some dangerous positions so far and gets the ball in another one, 20 yards from goal, and fires narrowly over. Roma need to keep a closer eye on him.
Kolarov puts in dangerous crosses from three consecutive set pieces but Porto manage to get the ball clear, via an unconvincing Casillas flap.
- Yellow cardHéctor HerreraFC Porto
Herrera levels things up on the bookings front by bringing down Kolarov. He'll miss Porto's next game in the competition.
- Yellow cardNicolò ZanioloAS Roma
Zaniolo hauls down Tiquinho to pick up an early booking.
Danilo tries his luck from range but can't get enough bend on the ball.
Corona cuts inside and sees his shot blocked but the ball ricochets to Telles, who has the best opening of the game so far but can only find the side-netting.
There's a pause as Kolarov is down, but it looks like he'll be fine.
Olsen spills a routine cross and recovers the ball just before Marega can get there. A nervy start for the Roma shot-stopper.
Perotti wins the ball and has an opportunity to play in Dzeko, who made a smart run, however he undercooks the through ball.
A Porto corner is headed away from the box to Corona, who hits a sweet volley but it flies over the bar.
Kolarov takes the free-kick but it's blocked and Porto can counter, although that too amounts to nothing.
Kolarov wins an early free-kick up the field for Roma.
Cuneyt Cakir is our referee - an easy face to recognise.
The teams are in the tunnel at a wet Estadio do Dragao. Many of the Porto fans are holding up cut-outs of the club badge and we're almost ready to go.
Just 10 minutes until kick-off now - here's a handy reminder of the two teams.
Porto have scored in every home game they have played this season and at one stage won 12 consecutive home matches in all competitions. Additionally, they have won all three of their home encounters in the Champions League so far this campaign, scoring eight goals in the process and conceding just two.
As previously mentioned, both teams lost at the weekend, and they also both went out of this competition against Liverpool last season. For Porto that was at this stage - on they haven't been past in four years - while Roma lost to the Reds in the semi-finals.
It's a milestone night for Roma.
A bad omen for him is that Roma have lost six of their last seven road games in the Champions League.
Both teams suffered damaging defeats at the weekend, with Porto falling at home to Benfica in a result that knocked them off the top of the table, while Roma suffered a chastening 3-0 loss at the hands of bitter rivals Lazio. Both managers will be looking for a reaction from their players and if he doesn't get one it could well cost Di Francesco his job, with reports in the Italian media today suggesting he'll be sacked if Roma lose tonight.
Only three players have scored more Champions League goals this season than Marega, so his return is a huge boost for the hosts.
We should be in for goals tonight - there have been at least three in Porto's last five Champions League games, while 10 of Roma’s last 11 matches in the competition have witnessed at least three goals.
Only five of the players who started the first leg for Roma also start here as the under0fire Eusebio di Frencesco mixes things up. At the back is where you find the most radical changes, with Kostas Manolas - who missed Roma's game at the weekend through injury - the only survivor. Nicolo Zaniolo, who scored twice in the first leg, unsurprisingly starts.
ROMA: Olsen, Jesus, Manolas, Marcano, Karsdorp, Nzonzi, De Rossi, Kolarov, Zaniolo, Perotti, Dzeko.
First Porto, who make two changes from the first leg. Moussa Marega, who has had a fine Champions League so far, returns from injury and Jesus Corona is back from suspension. Fernando and Yacine Brahimi make way for them.
PORTO: Casillas, Militao, Felipe, Pepe, Telles, Otavio, Danilo, Herrera ,Corona, Marega, Tiquinho.
Good evening and welcome to Eurosport's LIVE coverage of the last-16 second leg between Porto and Roma. The Italian team have taken a 2-1 aggregate lead to Portugal but, as we saw last night, that's far from an insurmountable disadvantage for Porto to face, especially given how poorly Roma have travelled this season. Team news is on the way - in the meantime, here's a nice hype video from the home side.
