Braga peg back Porto

FC Porto spurned the chance to go seven points clear in the Portuguese Liga as SC Braga scored a late equaliser to leave the Estádio do Dragão with a point and move into second place.

Chasing pack
Porto played the more attractive football and were twice denied by the woodwork before half-time. Co Adriaanse's side finally took the lead in the 54th minute, Lucho González converting a pass from new Brazilian signing Adriano Vieira. Porto hit the bar again before João Tomás stroked in an 87th-minute penalty for Braga after Kim Dong-Hyun had been felled by Bruno Alves. Porto have 45 points, with Braga, Sporting Clube de Portugal and SL Benfica locked together on 40.
