Make that four in a row.
Benfica captured yet another Portuguese league title on Saturday, a 5-0 victory over Vitoria Guimaraes ensuring that Rui Vitoria’s men cannot be caught at the top of the table by main title rival Porto.
Benfica, having lost a mere two league matches this season, has now been crowned Portuguese champion 36 times; Porto, the country’s second-most successful side, sits on 27 titles.
