Jesus Manuel Corona Ruiz, commonly known as Tecatito, made history in Turin. Despite the 3-2 defeat, Porto managed to leave Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus out of the tournament, and became the first Mexican to beat the Portuguese in continental competitions.It should be noted that his compatriots Hirving Lozano and Raúl Jimenez also faced him in decisive instances of the Champions League, but their results were unfavorable.

Porto made history in Italian lands. With a squad in which there are not many names, he surpassed a Juventus full of international figures. The 2-1 in the first leg in Portugal, and the bad moment that Andrea Pirlo's team is going through, anticipated that this could happen. However, the last word was not said, until the referee whistled the end, since with just one goal from Juventus, the story would have been different.

The truth is that the fall by 2-1 in the 90 minutes, took them to an additional time, in which a goal from Porto forced Vecchia Signoria to convert at least 2 more. Despite the quick reaction, he managed to put himself ahead with a goal from Rabiot, but the 3-2 was not enough, so it was the visitors who celebrated in Turin. It was thus that Tecatito Corona achieved an achievement that no compatriot of his had ever achieved: leaving out of the Champions League, nothing more and nothing less than Cristiano Ronaldo.

The other Mexicans who had faced Cristiano were Hirving Lozano and Raúl Jimenez, but both fell to one of the greatest soccer legends. The first, he did it defending the colors of Napoli, and the second, when he was still wearing the Atlético Madrid shirt, and the Portuguese was on the sidewalk in front of the Spanish capital.
