All the leading clubs in Portugal won their matches this weekend, meaning there was no change at the top of the Liga NOS.
Leaders Benfica won 2-0 in Chaves to equal their own record (dating back to 1973) for the most consecutive away wins in the Portuguese top flight – 15. Late goals from Mitroglou and Pizzi gave the Eagles the points.
Porto won their local derby against Boavista at the Dragão, with André Silva scoring a brace in a 3-1 victory, while Braga came from behind to beat Vitória Setúbal 2-1 at the Quarry thanks to the evergreen Alan, the 37-year-old Brazilian scoring one and setting up the other goal.
The most impressive performance came from Sporting, whose 4-2 victory over Estoril did not reflect the home team’s superiority as the Lions returned to winnings ways.
