Braga 0 Porto 1: Tello lands telling blow

Porto close gap on Primeira Liga leaders Benfica to one point with a 1-0 win at Braga, secured by Cristian Tello's fourth goal in a week.

The in-form Cristian Tello scored the only goal as Porto kept the heat on Primeira Liga leaders Benfica with a 1-0 win at Braga on Friday.

Fresh from scoring a hat-trick in his side's 3-0 triumph over Sporting last week, Tello again proved decisive at Estadio Municipal de Braga.

The on-loan Barcelona forward latched on to a through ball from substitute Vincent Aboubakar and coolly clipped the ball over Matheus Nascimento with 17 minutes remaining.

Fourth-placed Braga were unable to respond as their six-match winning run in all competitions came to an end.

Porto have now triumphed in six league matches on the spin themselves and trail Benfica by a point ahead of the latter's trip to lowly Arouca on Sunday.
