LISBON, Portugal (AP) - FC Porto stumbled in the Portuguese title race after losing 1-0 at Guimaraes under caretaker coach Rui Barros on Sunday.

Bakary Bouba Sare scored for Guimaraes in the fourth minute after a mistake by goalkeeper Iker Casillas, and his team then hung on for the win.

Porto also lost striker Vicent Aboubakar to a second booking late.

The loss left Porto in third place, now five points behind leader Sporting Lisbon and three behind second-place Benfica.

Porto has yet to name a replacement after firing Julen Lopetegui.

Sunday also saw three sides win away from home.

Moreirense’ Victor Gomes converted a penalty in stoppage time for a 2-1 win at Arouca, Braga won 3-2 at Nacional, and Belenenses prevailed 2-1 at Rio Ave.
