Italian champions Juventus eased into the Champions League quarter-finals with a routine second-leg win against Portuguese league leaders Porto.

 

Leading 2-0 from the first leg, Juve sealed the tie when Paulo Dybala drilled in a low penalty after Maxi Periera was sent off for handball.

 

The hosts played the second half at a canter as they reached the last eight for the second time in four years.

 

Striker Gonzalo Higuain went closest to a second when he fired wide.

 

Juve are joined in the last eight by English champions Leicester City, who beat Sevilla in Tuesday’s other game.

 

The quarter-final draw takes place on Friday.
