Benfica win and have four games left to claim title

Benfica Blog
Benfica defeated Gil Vicente 2-0 yesterday and have taken one step closer to winning the Portuguese League title for the first time since the 2018/19 season, their magic number now sits at eight points with four games remaining in the 2022/23 season.

Benfica will next host Braga at home, in a crucial must win game and will still need to take on Sporting away in the second last game of the season. The ideal scenario would see Benfica win both games but one win out of the two encounters is a must for the Lisbon side as they have the more difficult remaining schedule then their closest rivals FC Porto.

League joint leading scorers Goncalo Ramos and Joao Mario have both continue to struggle and Benfica will need both players to be on their best form for the final round of league games if they are to count on capturing the title this season.
