FC Porto vs Feirense Report
FC Porto beat Feirense at the EstÃ¡dio do DragÃ£o tonight to go joint top of the Liga ZON Sagres table, alongside Benfica on 49 points.
Porto threw everything at the Quim Machado's relegation strugglers all night, but for a long time it seemed a heroic display from Feirense's veteran goalkeeper Paulo Lopes would frustrate the Dragons.
Lopes stopped a series of efforts from long and close-range, including a Hulk penalty.
But Feirense defender Luciano was sent off in giving away the spot kick and against ten men Porto finally made their pressure tell.
A Maicon header and a James RodrÃguez goal ensured the three points would be going to VÃtor Pereira's team, and sets up next Friday's clÃ¡ssico between Benfica and Porto in Lisbon beautifully.
