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.
Free-kick again now to Porto, this time on Leipzig's left side as Upamecano's boot catches the back of Aboubakar. It's a well-guided effort into the box and over the wall from forty yards out - but Gulasci reads it easily enough and claims unchallenged.
Free-kick to Brahmi now as he is clattered by a heavy-handed slide - with Orban perhaps lucky to avoid a booking. Porto's effort is weak though - and it outruns the attackers straight to Gulacsi.
Offside against Leipzig as they look certain to score - Forsberg tapping in Bernardo's flat cross just ahead of the defence. Porto deal with the soft effort and both Pereiras combine to flit it around the back and midfield, content to hold it loosely.
Leipzig earn a throw in their own half and look to take it out of danger - and then earn a free-kick after Sabitzer is winded by an elbow from Marcarno under the high ball.
Andre has a second attempt on goal now, down the other end for Porto - but he conencts his header well wide of the mark and can only steer it straight out from the cross of Jesus.
Leipzig are starting to find themselves a bit more in this match in terms of going forward - they shift it wide to their right wing and Keita takes it downfield before a fizzled cross to Sabitzer goes AWOL.
The German side earn a free-kick which Bruma takes, thirty yards out on the right - and it needs a fingertip touch to the top left corner from Sa to deny him a goal.
The best chance of the game for the visitors. They very nearly make it too! Aboubakar runs flat on the left, and collects a poor deflection from Gulacsi - then tries to play it across to Andre who sprays it high and over from close range under pressure.
Telles runs flat on the left, and collects a poor deflection from Gulacsi - then tries to play it across to Aboubakar who sprays it high and over from close range under pressure.
Porto have probably had the better rub of chances so far, it must be said - but they looked as likely to score as Leipzig at this stage - not very, that is.
Still, Marega's legacy before he left the field was the corner that gave them a goal - and the hosts are in control. And it's Andre who comes on for Marega as Porto prepare their corner in Leipzig's back-left side.
Marega manages to turn two defenders inside out on the left flank after a through ball for Porto - and he earns a corner. It proves too much for the forward though - and he will be substituted now.
A free-kick to Leipzig just inside the Porto half on the extreme right comes to nothing as Sabitzer fails to turn it in towards the box sharply enough - and then the hosts get one themselves on the right to take the pressure off.
Kampl concedes a free-kick against Porto on halfway now, and the hosts opt to play it back - with Marega still needing treatment on the edges, they are a man down up front.
A stoppage early in play now for Marega to recieve treatment after appearing to catch Augustin in an awkward tackle. He still appears to be somewhat shaken by the early tackle as he came up on goal.
Orban slots a through-ball to Augustin on the left but it runs too deep and Porto are happy to let it go out for a goal kick.
Confusion around the back four for Porto allows some neat play from the visitors to cross the threshold into the box - with Forsberg playing a delightful back-hell flat pass to Augustin.
Moussa Merega drives to the by-line, skipping past a couple of Leipzig defenders in the process, but he has few options in the middle and in the end his cross is gathered easily by Gulacsi at the near post.
There is nothing subtle about Oliveira's attempts to halt Forsberg's run as he takes him down quite forcibly and deservedly receives a booking for doing so.
There was half-hearted appeals for a penalty from the home support as the ball clipped the hand of Miguel Layun, but the Porto defender knew little about it and it would have been a harsh decision to award a spot-kick.
Besiktas now lead in Monaco, in the other Group G game being played this evening. Before tonight, Porto had conceded just six goals in 11 outings this season, keeping seven clean sheets in the process.
It should make for an enthralling game of football - just like we enjoyed in the first half. The Leipzig wall stands firm to block Sergio Oliviera's disappointing free-kick, and the Porto midfielder skies the rebound well over the bar.
Orban brings down the powerful and pacey Aboubakar, just as he was about to burst his way inside the Leipzig penalty box.
This is a dangerous position for a free-kick Yellow card, the first of the night! Brahimi is booked for a professional foul on Augustin. The referee brings a pulsating 45 minutes to a close.
Leipzig broke the deadlock through Orban, but were pegged back almost immediately when Aboubakar levelled for Porto. Leipzig ran up a two-goal advantage thanks to goals from Forsberg and Augustin, but the visitors struck at the end of the half through Marcano.
Defending has been non-existent in this tie, but it is making for an entertaining match! Moussa Merega drives to the by-line, skipping past a couple of Leipzig defenders in the process, but he has few options in the middle and in the end his cross is gathered easily by Gulacsi.
Orban brings down the powerful and pacey Aboubakar, just outside the Leipzig penalty box. The visitors were extremely slow to make their way out onto the pitch for the second half.
They finally get the game back underway though, hoping to avoid their second defeat from three Group G games. Leipzig led through Orban, but were pegged back almost immediately when Aboubakar levelled for Porto.
Herrera evaded his marker to nod the ball Marcano's way, leaving the defender with a simple tap in. Herrera evaded his marker to head the ball into the path of Marcano who was left with a simple tap in.
Leipzig have been clinical in attack, but absolutely appaling at the back! Herrera is left with a free header at the back post as Porto deliver a corner, he nods the ball into the path of Marcano who bundles the ball over the line.
Augustin's frightening pace was evident in Leipzig's third goal - the Frenchman speeded past Marcano to grab the goal his first-half performance deserved.

Leipzig extend their lead! Forsberg's through ball finds Augustin who takes a heavy touch, but the ball ricochets off Marcano, and the Leipzig forward races onto the loose ball and slots home with a true poacher's finish for his first goal in the Champions League.

Questionable defending from the Leipzig defence as Aboubakar breaks the offside trap, he plays a clever cut back to Brahimi who miscontrols the ball!
Danilo then drills a shot straight at Gulacsi from outside the box. Leipzig re-take the lead with a lovely team goal! Forsberg is slipped through by Sabitzer's defence-splitting reverse pass, and the Swede keeps his cool to tuck the ball beyond Sa for his second goal of the campaign.
It was a lovely pass from Sabitzer which unlocked the Porto defence. It was a lovely pass from Sabitzer who unlocked the Porto defence with a wonderful pass.
Forsberg is slipped through by Sabitzer's reverse pass, and the Swede keeps his cool to tuck the ball beyond Sa. Porto fail to clear the ball convincingly, with Keita gifted possession in a wide area.
The Guinean is invited to shoot, but his effort actually goes out for a throw-in at the opposite side. A wry smile from the Leipzig midfielder, but that simply wasn't good enough.
Monaco and Besiktas are also drawing , in the other game being played in Group G. Augustin loves to shoot on sight, and the Leipzig playmaker is dangerous from distance.
However, his most recent effort is drilled at the advertising hoardings from 25 yards. 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.
