Guimaraes loses 1-0 at Estoril, stumbles in Portuguese league race


LISBON, Portugal — Kleber scored in the 74th minute to give Estoril a 1-0 win at home over Guimaraes in the Portuguese league on Saturday.

The striker headed in a corner kick from Antonio "Toze" Pinheiro to take the three points.

Third-place Guimaraes remained winless in three rounds. It fell three points behind FC Porto, and leader Benfica can increase its six-point gap over Guimaraes when it plays Gil Vicente on Sunday.

Estoril rose into ninth place.

Porto beat Setubal 4-0 on Friday.
