The two Portuguese giants keep the title race alive. Here's all you need to know ahead of their respective matches this weekend.

The 2018-19 season in the Portuguese top flight is coming to an end, but Benfica and Porto are still fighting toe-to-toe to determine the champion.

Porto had a comfortable lead at the top, but the Eagles soared back to the first place. Now, the red-and-white team could almost put an end to the title race if they win on Saturday and Porto loses. 

This week could be crucial for both sides, since the Portuguese giants will have to play their respective games away from home. Could these matches away from their supporters be decisive in the title race? Here's a quick graph that will show you what's in store for both teams in the Primeira Liga title race:

This is how the table looks like with only two games to go.

Nacional vs Porto

Porto can't afford to drop more points if they want to keep their title hopes alive, and they will face this game without two key players. Added to Iker Casillas' absence due to a life-threatening heart-attack, Sergio Conceicao will have to prepare his team for Sunday's clash without captain Héctor Herrera. The Mexican midfielder picked up his fifth yellow of the season, which will force him out for this tie. To make matters worse, Porto will face a team that needs to win both of their remaining games to avoid relegation, and maybe that won't be enough. Can the stakes be any higher?
