LISBON, Portugal — Porto scored four goals in the second half to beat Guimaraes 4-2 Sunday and stay top of the Portuguese league.

Vincent Aboubakar and Yacine Brahimi scored for Porto early in the second half to overturn an opener by Guimaraes’ Raphinha.

Moussa Marega added two more goals to ensure the win before Heldon scored Guimaraes’ second.

Porto stayed two points ahead of Sporting Lisbon, which routed Maritimo 5-0 led by Bas Dost’s hat trick.

Dost opened the scoring and added two more goals in the second half after Bryan Ruiz had doubled the lead. Substitute Marcos Acuna rounded off the victory in injury time.

Third-place Benfica stayed three points behind Sporting after Pizzi Afonso and Jonas scored in a 2-0 win at Moreirense.
