Benfica wrap up Portuguese league title with victory over Nacional

Benfica have won the league for a third successive season.

Benfica won a third successive Portuguese league title when they beat Nacional 4-1 on Sunday.

Nicolas Gaitan scored twice, with Jonas and Pizzi also on target as Benfica notched up a 13th straight win and beat rivals Sporting Lisbon to the crown by two points.

Sporting defeated Braga 4-0 but fell short in their bid to win the title for the first time since 2002.

Benfica's crown was their 35th, while FC Porto finished in third place with 73 points.

They also set a new league record, accumulating 88 points from 34 matches. Porto had set the previous record, winning 86 in 2002-2003 under the management of Jose Mourinho.
