Simmy in no-show action

FC Porto maintained their winning start to the new Primeira Liga season after cruising to a routine 2-0 win at home to Gil Vicente.

It took Porto only eight minutes to open the scoring as Silvestre Varela marked his return from injury with a goal. Maicon flicked on the initial corner and after having his first shot saved by Adriano Facchini, the Portugal winger scored on his second attempt.

Jackson Martinez secured the three points with his fourth league goal of the season in the 27th minute as he knocked into an empty net from close range after Adriano parried Lica’s header.

Former Potimonense striker Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo wasn’t listed for the match.
