LISBON, Portugal (AP) -- FC Porto edged out visiting Moreirense 1-0 thanks to Jackson Martinez's second-half goal to take the overnight lead of the Portuguese league on Saturday.

Jackson's league-best 10th goal of the season came from a corner kick by fellow Colombia international James Rodriguez in the 71st minute.

Porto bounced back from its midweek loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League with a ninth win in 11 rounds to move a provisional three points clear of Benfica before its game at Sporting Lisbon on Monday.
