Benfica lay major dent in Sporting title hopes

Benfica Blog
Benfica look to have handed their cross town rivals Sporting a major blow in their aspirations to repeat as Portuguese League Champions after a 2-0 victory at the Estadio Jose Alvalade yesterday. Benfica kept their slim hopes of finishing second alive with the victory closing their gap on their Lisbon rivals to six points with four league games remaining but Sporting currently holds the tiebreaker if the clubs finish level on points. 

Darwin Nunez continued his hot form scoring the opening goal and his league leading 25th of the season while setting up the second goal late in the game. Benfica's final four games of the season will see them face Maritimo and Pacos Ferreira on the road, while they will host Famalicao and current league leaders FC Porto at the Estadio da Luz.
