Liga Sagres wrap: Benfica end Braga run as Porto go top

1 April 2012 06:50

Porto moved top of Liga Sagres after Benfica snatched a late 2-1 win over Sporting Braga on Saturday.

Braga were a point clear in top spot heading into the clash in Lisbon, but Bruno Cesar's stoppage-time winner saw them slip to third.

Benfica opened the scoring in the 77th minute when Axel Witsel struck from the penalty spot after Uwa Elderson Echiejile brought down Cesar.

Nigerian Echiejile redeemed himself soon after with the equaliser, poking in a Hugo Viana free-kick at the back post.

But Jorge Jesus' men would take all three points and end Braga's 13-match unbeaten league run when Cesar finished off some strong work from Argentine Nicolas Gaitan in additional time.

Reigning champions Porto took full advantage as Lucho Gonzalez and James Rodriguez struck in their 2-0 win over Olhanense.

Gonzalez opened the scoring midway through the first half before Rodriguez ensured Porto extended their unbeaten league run to eight matches with his 66th-minute goal.
