Casillas saves penalty & Porto coach sent off in 1-0 win at Tondela in Portuguese league


LISBON, Portugal — Goalkeeper Iker Casillas saved a penalty and coach Julen Lopetegui was sent off in FC Porto's 1-0 win at Tondela, as the second-place side provisionally closed on Portuguese leader Sporting Lisbon on Saturday.

The Spain goalie blocked Salva Chamorro's late spot kick, after Maicon fouled John Murillo.

Porto forward Yacine Brahimi scored what proved to be the winner in the first half, shortly before Lopetegui was ordered from the dugout.

Porto, which has a game to play, reduced Sporting's lead to two points before it plays on Monday.
