Porto won 1-0 in the first meeting, but Malaga's 20-year-old forward Francisco Alarcon tied the series in the 43rd minute. Alarcon scored with a high, curling shot that beat goalkeeper Helton and went into the far top corner.

Roque Santa Cruz got the decisive second score when he rose to head a corner into the far post in the 77th minute.

Porto's Steven Defour was sent off after receiving a second yellow card for a late challenge on Joaquin Sanchez in the 49th minute.
