LISBON, Portugal (AP) - Jackson Martinez scored twice as FC Porto beat Gil Vicente 2-0 on Sunday, postponing Benfica’s title celebrations in Portugal.

Porto’s win kept it three points behind Benfica at the top of the standings, but the defending champions can clinch the title with one win in either of the last two rounds against Guimaraes and Maritimo.

Ricardo Quaresma missed a penalty but a minute later passed for Jackson to head in Porto’s first goal in the 12th minute. The Colombia striker added a second goal four minutes from time.

Gil Vicente remained in second-to-last place in the drop zone.

Also, third-place Sporting Lisbon drew 1-1 at Estoril, Moreirense beat Setubal 3-1, and Boavista drew 0-0 at Arouca.

Benfica routed Penafiel 4-0 on Saturday, sealing the last-place club’s relegation.
