LISBON, Portugal (AP) Porto lost at Belenenses 2-0, missing a chance to regain the Portuguese league lead on Monday.

Porto stayed one point behind rival Benfica with six matches remaining.

Nathan put the hosts ahead in the 10th minute and Maurides doubled the lead in the 70th to hand Porto its second league loss of the season. It lost for the first time two rounds ago against Pacos Ferreira.

It was Belenense’s first win over Porto in 16 years.

Benfica will host Porto at the Stadium of Light in two weeks.
