FC Porto came from two goals down to post a 3-2 comeback win over Moreirense, with Miguel Layun, Hector Herrera, and Jesus "Tecatito" Corona all getting the start for the Dragões.

Though it was a rough start for FC Porto after they went down by two goals, Miguel Layun was key in leading the charge for Jose Peseiro's men.

First, a penalty for FC Porto was called in the 41st minute. Miguel Layun stepped up and placed the spot kick past Igor Stefanovic to pull Porto within one.

Working the left back position, Miguel Layun then helped set up the equalizer. On a Layun corner kick from the left-hand side, Hyun Jun Suk got in front of his defender to head home the 2-2.

In the 76th minute, Evandro decided matters in favor of Porto when Hector Herrera performed an acrobatic flying assist from a Layun cross to provide the Brazilian with the winning header.

The result keeps Porto firmly in the fight for the title, three points from first-placed Sporting. Next, Porto will play host to Borussia Dortmund in the the return leg of their Europa League clash.
