Braga put pressure on Porto
Braga closed the gap on Liga ZON Sagres leaders Porto to a point with a 2-1 win over bottom side Uniao Leiria as the defending champions were held to a draw by Academica.
Braga went ahead through Ferreira Douglao after 24 minutes and Rodrigo Lima doubled their advantage three minutes into the second half. Bruno Moraes netted a consolation just after the hour mark which leaves Uniao Leiria at the foot of the table.
Midtable Academica were heading for what would have been a shock win after Arnaldo Edinho gave them the lead 39 minutes into the game. However, Hulk netted an equaliser in stoppage time with a penalty following the dismissal of Academica's Pape Habib Sow.
