Porto beats Brugge 2-1 with injury-time penalty

FC Porto came from behind to beat Club Brugge 2-1 Tuesday with an injury-time penalty to become a challenger in Champions League Group G.

Brugge, hit with a slew of injuries, got its first goal in the Champions League this year in the 12th minute when forward Jelle Vossen latched on to a rebound, kept a cool head in a goalmouth scramble and sent it home with a curling shot.

Increasing pressure paid off for Porto in the 68th minute when Mexican defender Miguel Layun was given too much space and hit home with a long-range drive from well outside the penalty area that gave goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle no chance.

In injury time, Andre Silva completed the comeback when he converted a spot kick after Corona was brought down.
