Lisbon giants move one step closer to the title, while Sporting’s miserable campaign continues.
Benfica overcame arch city rivals Sporting Lisbon 2-0 to maintain their four-point lead over FC Porto in the race for the Portuguese league this weekend.
The home side had to wait until ten minutes before the break to open the scoring through Eduardo Salvio in this tense Lisbon derby at the Stadium of Light.
And in-form front man Rodrigo Lima ended the match as a contest when his brilliant volley after a glorious one-touch team move made it 2-0 to maintain the Lisbon giants’ amazing unbeaten league record this season.
