Lisbon:

Porto bagged a season's treble trophy haul after adding the Portuguese Cup Sunday to the club's triumphs in the Europa League and Portuguese league.

Porto, coached by 33-year-old Andre Villas-Boas, hammered Vitoria Guimaraes 6-2 in the Cup final in Lisbon to repeat the treble last achieved in 2003 under now-Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho.

The club became the first to win the Cup three times in successive years, and it has now claimed the honour 16 times in its history.

The Cup final saw seven goals scored in the first half, with Colombian James Rodriguez finally nabbing a hat-trick as Porto ran out easy winners.
