Porto back in contention in Portugal

FC Porto beat Setubal 3-0 to get back in touch with the Portuguese league leaders on Saturday.
Three second half goals allowed the three-time defending champion to collect its third straight win and improve to 20 points with a game in hand. Leixoes leads with 23 points.
Bruno Alves opened two minutes before Freddy Guarin scored in the 68th, while Lucho Gonzalez capped the scoring in the 80th to keep Porto unbeaten at Bonfim Stadium for 15 years.
Nene scored twice as Nacional joined Porto at 20 points following a 4-2 victory over Belenenses. The Brazilian striker has seven goals to trail only Pacos Ferreira striker William, who scored in a 2-1 loss to Academica, which snapped a seven-match winless run.
Sporting beat Amadora 3-1 on Friday for a third straight victory to tie Benfica in second place with 22 points. Benfica can go top of the table, temporarily, by stretching its unbeaten season at Maritimo on Sunday.
