Atlético took the lead in the 56th minute by Antoine Griezmann.

But it took another ten minutes for the game to really come to life.

The first flash point came when Yannick Carrasco denied Porto a quick free kick.

He picked up the ball, only to be chased by Porto’s evaporating star Otavio.

The attacking midfielder made a tackle, before Carrasco made a swipe – knocking him to the ground.

Carrasco was then brought to the floor himself, due to the jostling and shoving that ensued.

The Belgian was shown a red card – while Otavio and Angel Correa were also booked in the melee.

Pepe was later fined for ‘unsportsmanlike conduct’, before Wendell became the latest to be sent off.

The full-back grabbed the ball after it went out to take a throw-in, when Mathias Cunha rushed in to steal it from him.

Wendell stood firm, with Cunha running at his elbow before falling to the floor.

The referee bought the theater and Wendell was ordered to march.

Agustin Marchesin was then sent off despite sitting on the bench.

Incredibly, the substitute goalkeeper has received more red cards than he has played in the Champions League this season.

Correa doubled Atletico’s lead in the 90th minute, before Rodrigo De Paul added the ball in injury time.

Sergio Oliveira scored a 96th-minute penalty for Porto, but it wasn’t enough to stop his nine-man side from relegating to the Europa League – while Atletico qualified for the Champions League knockout stages.
