Porto moved within touching distance of claiming the Portuguese league title as they won 3-1 at struggling Tondela on Thursday.

Captain Danilo Pereira opened the scoring two minutes into the second period before Moussa Marega added a second midway through the half.

Ronan pulled one back for Tondela with a penalty but Porto got a spot kick of their own deep in stoppage time which Fabio Vieria converted.

Porto moved up to 76 points from 31 games, leaving defending champions Benfica trailing in second place with 68 points from 31.

Porto won both home and away against Benfica in the league this season and if teams are tied, then their head-to-head record is used first to separate them before goal difference, according to Portuguese league regulations.

Meanwhile, Benfica's slim hopes of holding on to their Portuguese league crown were all but crushed after they conceded a late goal and were held to a 1-1 draw at Famalicao on Thursday.

Benfica next host seventh-placed Vitoria Guimaraes on Tuesday and if they fail to win they will hand the title to Porto, who play on Wednesday at home to Sporting.
