2-0 at half-time.

Total domination in the first half, a couple of really nice goals and several other opportunities. James Rodriguez, Alex Sandro, and Jackson have been the best for me so far. Haven't really liked Atsu(seems nervous) or Mangala(a couple of late challenges).

Hope to see Iturbe, Castro, and Kelvin in the second half at some point.

Goooooolooooooooo! JAMES with a goal now.

Varela sends the cross back into the box, James with his right foot hits a kind of weak shot but had the wide open net to finish.

James with 1 goal + 2 assists, in on every goal!

3-0 Porto in the 47th minute.

First sub for us in the 56th minute.

Andre Castro comes on for Christian Atsu. Good sub by VP. Atsu wasn't at his best today, and with a 3 goal cushion now, take out a forward for a midfielder and just add some balance to the midfield.

Second substitution for us in the 63rd minute.

Juan Iturbe comes on for Silvestre Varela. A good game by Varela who got the goal he deserved, but the crowd have been chanting for Iturbe the whole second half.

Last sub for us in the 74th minute.

Kleber comes on for Jackson Martinez. Cha Cha Cha with a beautiful bicycle kick goal today, gets a nice applause from the crowd as he goes off.

Beautiful goal from Jackson btw, was crystal clear he'll blend in in no time.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

Bro...u left this story unfinished...crowd chanting for Iturbe to come on...he comes on in the 63rd min......so how did he play in the 30 min or so he got?........In general, is he Porto material?...I mean he's been with ur team for more than a season and If I'm rite he's played just a handful of games the whole time.....on the other hand James came here at around a similar age and he settled in quickly and is going from strength to strength......

No, James came one year younger than Iturbe. James came at 19, Iturbe arrived two days after his 18th birthday.

The talent is there for anybody to see... fast, dribbles well, strong shot, etc... he just needs to keep maturing.

Keep in mind that James played 2 games in the first 8 months of his Porto career. Porto do not rush young players, that's not the style of the club.

We are away to Rio Ave today, a game that is usually tough for us. Vila do Conde jas provided some tricky results in the past.

We welcome back all three of Lucho Gonzalez, Fernando, and Nicolas Otamendi to the squad. Lucho missed the last game to attend the funeral of his father, Otamendi was rested, and Fernando has been injured since mid-August.

Out of the squad go all of Iturbe, Kelvin, and Abdoulaye. The three will likely feature in Porto B's game tomorrow against Penafiel. Hector Quinonez will also play in that game. Rolando continues to just train and not get called for any type of game, either with the first team or the B team.

It is imperative that we win as both Benfica and Braga won their games yesterday. The 3 points today will keep us clear in first place, and even though it's early, we don't want to let the lead slip at any point.

Squad Called:

GK: Helton, Fabiano

DF: Danilo, Miguel Lopes, Maicon, Nicolas Otamendi, Eliaquim Mangala, Alex Sandro

MF: Lucho Gonzalez, Joao Moutinho, Andre Castro, Steven Defour, Fernando

FW: Silvestre Varela, Jackson Martinez, Kleber, James Rodriguez, Christian Atsu

Not Called:

Injured: Emidio Rafael
Manager Decision: Juan Iturbe, Kelvin, Hector Quinonez, Abdoulaye, Rolando

2-2 final. Shocking result, shocking display. We were poor and barely deserved to draw. In control with a 1-0 lead, Maicon makes his first meaningful mistake in about a year, and then the mayhem ensues. Rio Ave tie it, take the lead, and Jackson gets us the equalizer at the start of injury time.

When Josh turns into your mum type jokes we know that he is frail.
