Porto clinch Portuguese crown

Created on 20 May., 2013 2:21 AM GMT

Porto sealed their 27th Primeira Liga title with a 2-0 win at Pacos Ferreira on Sunday.

Vitor Pereira's men headed into the contest knowing that a slip-up could cost them success even after their dramatic 2-1 win over closest challengers Benfica last Saturday.

There was to be no such drama, however, as goals from Lucho Gonzalez and Jackson Martinez secured the win in a game which saw defender Ricardo dismissed for the hosts and Danilo given his marching orders for the champions.

Benfica also took maximum points from their game with Moreirense, but that result proved inconsequential as Porto made sure of triumph, taking the crown without losing a single game this term.
