LISBON, Portugal (AP) - Belenenses drew 1-1 at Setubal in the Portuguese league’s sole game on Saturday.

Belenenses midfielder Judilson “Pele” Tuncara scored in the sixth minute when he converted a penalty kick after Miguel Rosa was fouled in the area.

Setubal’s Joao Schmidt hit back in the 30th with a solo effort, to split the points.

Setubal played the last nine minutes with 10 men after defender Miguel Lourenco received his second yellow card.

Belenenses was left in sixth place, while Setubal inched two points from the relegation zone.

On Friday, FC Porto beat Braga 1-0 to pull within one point of league leader Benfica and extend its winning streak to six straight games.

Benfica visits Arouca on Sunday.
