Porto close in on title, Gil Vicente win
Porto are on the brink of clinching another Liga ZON Sagres title with a 2-0 victory at Maritimo on Saturday.
Hulk scored two penalties, the first in the 16th minute and the second in the 89th after Maritimo had lost Rafael Miranda to a red card in conceding the spot-kick, to settle the match.
The win moved Porto seven points clear of second-placed Benfica, who have a game in hand and three left to play. Porto will be crowned champions if Benfica lose to Rio Ave tomorrow.
In today's other game, Gil Vicente beat Guimaraes 3-1. Joao Vilela put Gil in front in the 15th minute, but Richard Oliveira's own goal made it 1-1 before the half-hour mark.
Rodrigo Galo Brito restored Gil's lead in the 54th minute and Vilela's second seven minutes later sealed the points.
