FOOTBALL: Unfortunate Casillas nets own goal to decide tie

Borussia Dortmund sealed their place in the last 16 of the Europa League with a 1-0 victory over Porto at Estadio Do Dragao on Thursday, after Iker Casillas netted an unfortunate own goal.After a bright start to proceedings it was the visitors who netted an important away goal to put themselves out of sight. Marco Reus, found space inside the box to unleashes a thumping volley that Casillas did well to save to save at the first attempt.However, the Spaniard could only push the ball into the path of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, whose close-range shot deflected off both the crossbar and the goalkeeper before rolling into the back of the net.Porto piled piled on the pressure after conceding as Evandro went agonizingly close to finding an equaliser before Dortmund stopper Roman Burki pulled off a magnificent one-handed save to deny Varela’s header.
