FC Porto draws 1-1 with Academica in Portugal


LISBON, Portugal (AP) -- Hulk scored a stoppage-time penalty to salvage Portuguese league leader FC Porto a 1-1 home draw with Academica on Saturday.

Arnaldo "Edinho" da Silva gave Academica the lead in the 39th minute, but defender Pepe Habib handled a pass by James Rodriguez in the area and Hulk stroked home from the penalty spot to split the points.

Also, Braga beat last-place Leiria 2-1 for an 11th consecutive league win that lifted it ahead of Benfica into second place.

Douglao scored Braga's 24th-minute opener and Lima added a second in the 48th with his league-leading 17th goal of the season before Bruno Moraes halved the difference.

Porto has 53 points. Braga is next with 52, and Benfica is third with 49 before its game at Pacos Ferreira on Sunday.
