LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Porto defeated Benfica 2-0 in an early-season meeting of the Portuguese rivals on Saturday.

Moussa Marega then sealed victory following an 86th-minute counterattack.
The result left Porto, Benfica and Famalicao tied at the top of the league with six points.
Promoted Famalicao can reach nine points with a win at Guimarães on Sunday.
