Reigning Portuguese league champions Porto, plus AZ Alkmaar and Mallorca were among the winners in pre-season friendlies on Sunday.

Silvestre Varela struck a brace for Liga Sagres giants Porto, who twice came from behind to defeat Venezuelan side Deportivo Anzoategui 4-2.


Deportivo went ahead through Edwin Aguilar in the 38th minute before the highly rated Jackson Martinez responded for Porto with a header at the back post early in the second half.


Juan Fuenmayor surprisingly restored the Venezuelans' lead on the hour-mark before Eliaquim Mangala equalised.


Varela's powerful header finally put Porto ahead in the 65th minute and he sealed the result in the dying moments with a neat finish from a tricky angle.


AZ Alkmaar were convincing winners in their friendly against La Liga side Getafe, claiming a comfortable 3-0 victory.


Roy Beerens tapped in a Johann Gudmundsson cross just 16 seconds in and Rasmus Elm made it 2-0 in the 14th minute.


Getafe midfielder Michel was sent off early in the second half and Aron Johannsson added a third for AZ.


In other matches, Mallorca overcame Lokeren 1-0, Bordeaux got past Mechelen 2-1 and Kortrijk and Club Brugge played out a 2-2 draw.
