The French side, who finished 17th in Ligue 1 last term, took a 64th-minute lead against the Portuguese champions through midfielder Xeka.
Porto pulled level when forward Hernani netted eight minutes later but an 87th-minute effort from South African striker Lebo Mothiba ensured a winning start for Les Dogues
