FC Porto 1-1 Benfica

Lisandro Lopez
Lisandro Lopez's header, in the third minute of stoppage time, preserved Benfica's unbeaten league record

Substitute Lisandro Lopez equalised in stoppage time to maintain Benfica's five-point Portuguese title lead as they drew with Porto in O Clasico.

The defender steered a cross from Andre Horta past goalkeeper Iker Casillas after a short corner.

Porto, who began the weekend in second place, fell to third after failing to hold the lead Diogo Jota gave them.

The 19-year-old collected Jesus Manuel Corona's pass in space on the left and fired in from an acute angle.
