Jackson Martinez netted a second-half equaliser as Porto salvaged a 1-1 draw against Austria Vienna in a Champions League Group G game on Tuesday. Roman Kienast got Vienna’s first goal and ultimately its first point in the competition this season after pouncing in the 11th minute when Brazilian defender Danilo mishit his clearance and sending a shot from the edge of the area that beat Helton. Porto was livelier in the second half, with Martinez heading the equaliser into an open goal amid a goalmouth scramble three minutes after the restart.

In the other Group G game, a huge error from Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois allowed Zenit St Petersburg to snatch a vital point against the Spaniards as they drew 1-1 in Russia.Agencies
