Porto fights back for 2-1 win at Estoril

LISBON, Portugal (AP) -- Striker Jackson Martinez scored one goal and set up another to give FC Porto a 2-1 comeback win at Estoril on Sunday, keeping the defending champions level on points with leader Benfica.

Defender Steven Vitoria gave Estoril hope of an upset with a goal 10 minutes in.

But Martinez passed for Silvestre Varela to level with a header in the 57th, and three minutes later the Colombia striker headed in a cross from countryman James Rodriguez.

Jackson has scored in six straight league matches for Porto and has nine goals in 11 games overall this season.

Also, Braga remained three points back in third place after winning 2-0 at Maritimo.
