Liga Sagres wrap: Porto, Benfica maintain gap at top

22 April 2012 02:34

Porto remain four points clear on top of the Liga Sagres table after a 3-0 home success over Beira-Mar on Saturday.

Vitor Pereira's side are locked in a title battle with Benfica, who also won, but Porto's cruisy win meant it mattered little.

Brazilian Hulk handed Porto the lead after 33 minutes when he converted from the penalty spot before Austrian Marc Janko doubled the advantage just six minutes after the half-time break.

Hulk - who has not enjoyed the same sort of success he had last season - capped off a decent run of form, in which he has scored five goals in his last seven matches, with his 55th-minute effort that sealed the victory.

Benfica thrashed fifth-placed Maritimo 4-1 at the Estadio da Luz in a clinical performance.

Spanish forward Nolito netted twice in the first 20 minutes for the hosts and although Guinea-Bissau attacker Sami responded just after half-time, Jorge Jesus' side made sure of the win soon after.

Rodrigo and Bruno Cesar scored on 65 and 69 minutes respectively to wrap up the victory.

Saturday's other match saw Vitoria Guimaraes claim a thrilling 3-2 win against Uniao De Leiria.

All five goals were scored in the second half, with the losers coming from behind to level the match twice.

But Er-Arbi Hilal Soudani of Algeria ensured Vitoria would win, grabbing his second goal of the game with just four minutes remaining.
