  • Print

LISBON, Portugal - Sporting Lisbon came from behind to win 2-1 at Arouca in a match both teams finished with 10 men to provisionally move into first place in the Portuguese league on Saturday.

Sporting remained with only one loss through 16 rounds this season and moved one point ahead of Benfica before it hosts Maritimo on Sunday, when FC Porto also plays Setubal.

Bruno Amaro opened for Arouca in the 15th minute, but Sporting defender Faustino Rojo levelled with a header 10 minutes later.

Arouca's Luis Tinoco was sent off with a second yellow card in the 63rd and Rojo followed suit three minutes later.

Substitute Islam Slimani grabbed Sporting's winner in the 72nd.
