Benfica clocked up yet another win as they edge nearer their quest for a third successive championship. A header early in the second half by centre-back Jardel was enough for the Eagles to earn all three points on Friday night.
As such, Sporting travelled to Porto the next day under immense pressure not to fail, but came away from the Estádio do Dragão with a 3-1 victory to keep their title hopes alive.
The fight for the final Europa League place is also going to the wire, with two points separating Paços de Ferreira, Rio Ave and Estoril with two games remaining. PortuGOAL rounds up the weekend action and its implications at the top and bottom of the Liga NOS.
