LISBON, Portugal (AP) - Islam Slimani scored in the 90th minute to give Sporting Lisbon a 1-0 win at Arouca on Sunday, maintaining its lead of the Portuguese league by extending its unbeaten streak to 21 games in the competition.

Sporting’s Naldo was sent off with a direct red card for pushing Arouca’s coach two minutes before Slimani’s scored his last-gasp winner from a rebound.

Second-place FC Porto needed goals from Vincent Aboubakar in the 70th and Miguel Layun in the 84th to beat Setubal 2-0.

Benfica defeated Boavista 2-0 on goals from Goncalo Guedes in the 39th and substitute Mehdi Carcela-Gonzalez in the 88th.

Sporting leads FC Porto by five points and Benfica by eight, but both its rivals have a game to play.

Maritimo also edged Rio Ave 3-2, and Moreirense defeated Pacos Ferreira 2-0.
