Elsewhere, Sporting continued to pile pressure on Porto by winning their respective game against Arouca. A double from Islam Slimani secured a 2-0 win for the hosts as they took their points tally after 25 outings to 61. Third-placed Benfica registered a 2-1 win at Portimonense to go within four points of Sporting while Braga retained the place in the top-four with 1-1 draw in their trip to Boavista.
