FC Porto vs Feirense Report
FC Porto beat Feirense at the Estádio do Dragão 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 Rodríguez goal ensured the three points would be going to Vítor Pereira's team, and sets up next Friday's clássico between Benfica and Porto in Lisbon beautifully.
