Two goals from Ricardo Quaresma in the first 10 minutes helped FC Porto to a surprise 3-1 win over Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday.

Bayern, a five-time European champion but currently hit by injuries, paid for its defensive blunders as it struggled to dominate a Portuguese side which is unbeaten in the competition.

Xabi Alonso lost the ball and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer brought down Jackson Martinez in the second minute, with Quaresma converting the penalty.

The Portugal forward got his second after Dante's error allowed him to slot the ball past Neuer.

Thiago Alcantara pulled one back in the 28th, but Martinez met a long pass and rounded Neuer in the 65th to give Porto a real chance of advancing next week.
