Jackson Martinez with the most outrageous assist of the weekend

The Colombian striker picked out hat-trick hero Tello with an audacious backheel in Porto’s 3-0 win over Sporting Lisbon.

PORTO TRIUMPHED IN a championship six-pointer on Sunday, cruising past Primeira Liga title challengers Sporting Lisbon 3-0 to keep track with leaders Benfica.

On-loan Barcelona striker Cristian Tello produced a hat-trick for Porto in their fifth consecutive league win as Julen Lopetegui’s men rose to 55 points, stretching their lead over third-placed Sporting (47), while they sit four points adrift of Benfica.

Tello’s first-half opener was the pick of the goals at the Estadio do Dragao, with the Spaniard bursting onto an audacious volleyed backheel from Jackson Martinez, before finishing a one-on-one opportunity against Rui Patricio.
