LISBON, Portugal (AP) -Benfica beat visiting Setubal 3-0 Sunday to maintain its undefeated record and a share of the Portuguese league lead along with FC Porto.

Both Benfica and Porto have identical records of 14 wins and three draws and enjoy a 15-point gap over third-place Braga after it drew 3-3 at Beira Mar on Sunday.

Enzo Perez opened the scoring five minutes in for Benfica. Brazilian striker Lima doubled the hosts' lead in the 48th, and Rodrigo Moreno capped the comfortable win in the 55th.

Relegation-threatened Setubal hasn't won at Benfica since 2004-05.

Elsewhere, it was: Gil Vicente 4, Maritimo 2; Nacional 1, Moreirense 2; and Olhanense 0, Academica 0.
