Europa League: Four-goal Falcao puts Porto in control

Four goals from Falcao looked to have guaranteed an all-Portuguese final in the Europa League as Porto came from behind to beat Spain's Villarreal 5-1 in the first leg of their semi-final last night.

In the other tie Benfica beat Braga 2-1 at the Estadio da Luz, Oscar Cardozo getting their winner after Vandinho had equalised Jardel's opener for the home side.
