Another disappointing delivery from Forsberg, as the Leipzig midfielder cannot beat the first defender at the near post from Leipzig's most recent corner.
Porto are getting plenty of bodies in the opposition penalty area every time they come forward. After a period of possession football, Herrera attempts to release the advanced Felipe behind the defence, but slightly over-cooks his pass and Leipzig have a goal-kick.
After a period of possession football, Herrera attempts to release the advanced Felipe, but slightly over-cooks his pass and Leipzig have the free-kick.
It is a desperate poor delivery from Forsberg and Porto deal with the danger easily, subsequently launching a counter-attack. However, Aboubakar loses the ball on the right.
Porto concede a cheap free-kick as Felipe fouls Forsberg on the right channel. This is a situation with potential for Leipzig. Forsberg is over the ball Leipzig have been well on top, but a defensive lapse has allowed Porto back into the game.
Porto can only half clear from the corner, the loose ball sits up nicely for Naby Keita who sees his half-volley drift inches wide of Sa's right-hand post.
A great chance for Leipzig to re-take the lead as Sabitzer is teed up inside the box, but he can't quite get the ball out of his feet, and when he does manage the shot, Sa is across his goal well to tip it over the bar.
Goal Porto are level, scoring with their first serious attack of the night! The hosts simply don't deal with a long throw-in as Felipe is allowed to flick the header on to Aboubakar who, on the turn, fires the ball between the legs of Peter Gulacsi.
Felipe was allowed to out-jump his marker too easily. The hosts simply don't deal with a long throw-in as Felipe is allowed to flick the header on to Aboubakar who fires the ball between the legs of Peter Gulacsi.
The hosts simply don't deal with a long throw-in as Brahimi is allowed to flick the header on to Aboubakar who fires the ball between the legs of Peter Gulacsi.
The hosts simply don't deal with a long throw-in as Felipe rises highest to flick the header on to Aboubakar who, on the turn, fires the ball between the legs of Peter Gulacsi.
That is the Cameroonian's ninth goal of the season! Assist Felipe Augusto de Almeida Monteiro. Leipzig have clearly taking confidence from their pulsating win over Dortmund on Sunday - they have completely comindated the opening quarter of an hour.
Bruma collects the ball in a wide area, cuts inside and plays the ball to the feet of Marcel Sabitzer. Bruma is seeking the return pass, but Sabitzer's attempt is cut out inside the Porto box.
The corner comes to little, but it isn't long before Leipzig recover possession and they launch yet another attack, Forsberg running at the defence, shooting and seeing the effort deflected out for yet another corner.
RB Leipzig are ahead thanks to a costly error from Porto's stand-in goalkeeper, Sa! He fumbles Jean Kevin Augustin's shot, and the loose ball falls kindly to Willi Orban who has the simple job of tapping the ball into a gaping net.
What a start for the hosts! Augustin, full of confidence, spins away from a couple of defenders - leaving Ivan Marcano on the floor - before rifling a shot at goal which Sa does well to push behind for a corner.
The angle is against Augustin, but he tries an effort anyway, and it isn't far wide. Leipzig are well on top at the moment. Well, well, well, Sergio Conceicao must be wondering why he left Casillas on the bench.
Surely the veteran goalkeeper would have dealt with the situation much better. He fumbles Kampl's shot, and the loose ball falls kindly to Willi Orban who has the simple job of tapping the ball into a gaping net.
Sa, making his Champions League debut, finally gets his first touch of the ball, after six minutes, as Kevin Kampl's lobbed cross into the box is played straight into the Porto goalkeeper's arms.
The referee tonight is Paolo Tagliavento of Italy. Leipzig are enjoying the lion's share of possession in the opening stages.
They finally record their first shot on target, but it is high and wide from Emil Forsberg who looks to the ground after seeing his effort from 25 yards sail into row Z.
RB Leipzig, in their traditional white and red home strip, hope tonight is the night they record their first ever European victory.
It won't be easy, and they will need to be at their very best to overcome the Portuguese league leaders. Their record away to Bundesliga clubs since then is D1 L3.
It won't be easy, and they will need to be at their very best to overcome the Portuguese leage leaders. The first ever meeting between RB Leipzig and Porto is underway, with the hosts taking kick off.
The sides are making their way out onto the pitch, meaning we are only minutes from kick-off. Porto have dropped Iker Casillas to the bench with Jose Sa surprisingly taking his place between the sticks.
The year-old played in the Portuguese Cup match at the weekend in only his sixth appearance with the first team.
There are few other notable changes for the visitors who again lead with Vincent Aboubakar in attack. He will be hoping to add to his tally of eight goals this season.
The hosts make three changes to the team that overcame Dortmund with captain Willi Orban, Swedish star Emil Forsberg and right-back Lukas Klostermann coming into the starting line-up.
Porto retake the lead - and all of a sudden, they too have sparke into life. It's taken an hour - but both sides are now playing proper good football.
Leipzig are frustrated by that goal, after they levelled earlier - and it tells as Augustin is somewhat careless with his next challenge, seeing yellow for his troubles.
Telles was the key man there, with his free-kick weighted absolutely perfectly. Replays show that Pereira was onside - just about - and napping Leipzig defence was undercut by the quick response there.
Close from a corner for Porto! Danilo Pereira beats Ricardo Pereira to a nicely curled effort from Andre - but he puts it just over the bar and it lands on the top of the net.
Telles steers his effort too far to the right and it sails out uncontested. A free-kick to Porto now, thirty yards out to the right, to be taken by Telles - but first, the referee heads to the touchline to give the home manager Sergio Conceicao a warning for his behaviour.
Porto break from the Leipzig attack and engage in a counter of their own - one which spirits the ball smartly down the right wing and then into the box for Aboubakar, who appeals for a penalty as his shot, skied over the bar, is made as he is seemingly pulled by his shirt to the ground by Klostermann.
A quickly taken free-kick for Leipzig on halfway marches them straight back within twenty-five yards of Porto's goal-line and Forsberg and Werner combine to harry the defence even further.
Porto find themselves being pushed back and stretched across their rearguard as Klostermann bounds forward, trying to cut through the gaps.
His pass runs wide and loose to the left and Sa gets there first. Aside from that Herrera goal - served up by a lovely Danilo Pereira pass around a messy box and finished with a calmy-poised shot - there isn't much to shout about from either team tonight.
Both are on the whole, robust if uninspiring in attack, limp in midfield and anonymous at the back. Even having conceded, Gulasci is arguably Leipzig's best player on the pitch - and Porto's Sa is a strong shout for their own.
Orban goes close with a header from a free-kick as he rises to meet Sabitzer's delivery - but Sa manages to punch it away before the Leipzig captain can get to it.
They look a vastly different proposition now. Whilst Bruma is also replaced, by Timo Werner. A change for the visitors at half-time too - the booked Halstenberg has been replaced by Lukas Klostermann.
The whistle goes and we are back underway for the second half in Portugal. Can Porto and Leipzig serve up something more spicy in the next 45 minutes?
We're about to find out. The Porto man nearly gets his second as his volley from just outside the box on the right corner spears wide by only a foot or so to the left.
He claims a deflection - but none is given and the goal kick proceeds. It's a well-struck corner that flies the gamut of the box and finds Herrera who heads it back out to the central edge.
Three Porto men and two Leipzig players get a touch - before Danilo Pereira manages to hook it out to Herrera again on the left who remains unmarked.
He drills it low for the right corner - and despite a glance of Gulacsi, it finds the back of the net! Porto have the lead, on home turf.
An early chance for Leipzig as the break into the Porto box, playing it around and are only denied when Sabitzer sees his back pass cleaned up by Felipe.
Gulacsi pumps it downfield and Porto pick up in midfield - but after a few short passes, the referee blows for half-time! Two added minutes on the way and Porto get a throw deep in Leipzig territory.
It's not exactly been a vintage half of European, it must be said - both teams, despite their moments, have made little of decent chances and look somewhat lethargic around their midfield section.
Porto are the stronger - but as they stumble the ball out for a throw, they've been far from excellent. It's a spirited effort from Herrera who whips it in from forty-five yards out on the right with a ball that sails high and wide towards the edge of the box - where Danilo Perreria is a touch too late to hook it back in.
Kampl loses the ball in midfield during a clumsy passage of play from Leipzig - and then Halstenberg is booked for a lunging high boot.
Danilo Pereira concedes a free-kick in a dangerous spot now, thirty yards out on the left for Leipzig - but they are unable to capitalise with a soft effort wide and the Porto man redeems himself with a smartly-executed counter-move downfield.
The Porto man get his head in the way to stop Bernando tapping back a long cross into the box on the right side - and continues to rub his head from where he found the Leipzig man's jaw.
Aboubakar now looks to run onto a long ball delivered from deep in his own half via Felipe - but Halstenberg beats him there and simply clips it back to the keeper for safety.
