Sport: Sporting won 3-0 over Portimonense on Saturday, and the team has an eight-point lead with two league rounds remaining.

Fredrik Aursnes and his Benfica team-mates had to win on Sunday to delay their rivals’ celebrations, but goals from José Luis Rodríguez and Zaydou Youssouf in the final 20 minutes of the game gave Famalicão victory.

Aursnes played the entire match.
