Bruno Alves and Hugo Almeida were on target to help Portugal secure their first FIFA World Cup qualifying win in four matches at the expense of ten-man Azerbaijan.

All the action came in the second half as the visitors capitalised on Rauf Aliyev's 55th-minute dismissal to open the scoring through Alves's second goal in as many games. Almeida sealed the victory 11 minutes from time to move Portugal to within a point of section leaders Russia, who have played two games fewer.
