Highlights: FC Porto 2-0 Boavista

By on 5th April 2019

FC Porto went back to the top of the Portuguese Primeira Liga with a 2-0 win over Boavista in the O Derby da Invicta on Friday night.

The hosts had wasted several good opportunities before Francisco Soares converted a 41st minute penalty to take the lead after the lively Yacine was tripped inside the penalty area. VAR ruled out a Moussa Marega strike for offside in first half stoppage time.

Otavio made the three points safe three minutes after half-time with a 25-yard effort that bounced over goalkeeper Rafael Bracali and into the bottom corner.

Sergio Conceicao’s side have moved three points ahead of Benfica who do not play until Sunday when they travel to Feirense on Sunday with their game in hand.

FC Porto are back in action on Tuesday night when they travel to Anfield to take on English Premier League leaders Liverpool in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.
