The City midfielder started for Fernando Santos’s side alongside Etihad colleagues Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo.
And in what was an impressive all-round performance by the visitors, Bernardo struck on 26 minutes to open the scoring, spectacularly volleying home from Bruno Fernandes’ pass.
Within five minutes a dominant Portugal had doubled their advantage.
Fernandes was the provider once again, as his cross was helped back by Diego Jota allowing Andre Silva to apply the finish.
And a fine night’s work for Portugal was sealed 12 minutes from time when Jota added a third goal with Bernardo then replaced by Otavio.
The victory leaves Portugal top of Group A with 13 points from five games.
Meanwhile Riyad Mahrez and his Algerian team-mates were forced to settle for a point in their latest African World Cup qualifier.
The Desert Foxes were held to a 1-1 draw away to Burkina Faso, in a game played in Marrakesh, Morocco for COVID safety precautions.
Algeria took a first half lead through Sofian Feghouli’s 17th international goal but Burkina Faso levelled on 64 minutes through Abdoul Tapsoba.
Mahrez went down under a heavy challenge with two minutes left but Algeria’s appeals for a penalty was dismissed.
The result leaves Algeria and Burkina Faso joint to of Group A in African qualifying with four points from their opening two games.
