Vincent Aboubakar and Yacine Brahimi scored four minutes apart in the first half to give FC Porto a 2-0 win over Maccabi Tel-Aviv and the Group G lead in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Aboubakar opened the scoring with a header in the 37th minute and Brahimi added to the lead in the 41st to give the hosts victory at the Estadio do Dragao.

The win leaves Porto with seven points after three matches, two points more than Dynamo Kiev, which held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw at home. The English side reached four points, while Maccabi remains pointless.

Porto, coming off a 2-1 win over Chelsea, will play its next match at Maccabi, while Chelsea will host Dynamo Kiev.
