Benfica beat Nacional to stretch lead
Rodrigo Moreno scored twice as Benfica stretched their lead at the top of the Liga ZON Sagres to eight points with a 4-1 win over Nacional.
Ezequiel Garay scored the opener in the ninth minute and Oscar Cardozo doubled the lead after 21 minutes, before Claudemir pulled one back from the spot eight minutes later.
Moreno then re-established the two-goal lead six minutes before the break, before rounding off the scoring just past the hour mark. Porto will have the chance to reduce the gap to five points when they face Uniao Leiria tomorrow.
In today's other game Selim Benachour netted after 21 minutes and Danilo Dias added a second on the hour as Maritimo beat Sporting Lisbon 2-0 to pull level on points with their opponents.
