Liga Sagres wrap: Benfica stretch lead, Sporting beaten

12 February 2012 00:38

Benfica moved eight points clear in the Liga Sagres with a 4-1 win over Nacional on Saturday, while Sporting Lisbon lost to Maritimo.

Three goals in the first half from Ezequiel Garay, Oscar Cardozo and Rodrigo Moreno had Benfica cruising at Estadio da Luz.

Claudemir did get one back from the penalty spot for visitors Nacional.

But Moreno bagged his second of the match and Benfica's third a minute past the hour mark to put the outcome beyond doubt.

The win sees Benfica extend their advantage over second-placed Porto, with the defending champions in action at home to Uniao Leiria on Sunday.

Their fellow heavyweights Sporting suffered a round to forget, as they went down 2-0 away to Maritimo.

Selim Ben Achour and Danilo Dias were on target in the first and second half respectively at Estadio dos Barreiros.

The win sees fifth-placed Maritimo draw level on points with Sporting, who occupy the final Europa League qualification berth in fourth spot.
