Can Portuguese giants Benfica just about win the Portuguese league on Saturday evening itself? That remains to be seen as the Eagles go into their penultimate league of the season on May 13 against Vitoria Guimaraes.

Guimaraes, we should mention, is not at all an easy team to win against. Only a win would give Benfica the title tonight.

Much depends also about the result of the FC Porto and Pacos Ferreira on Sunday. In the case of Benfica losing or records a draw on Saturday and Porto does the same on Sunday, the former become the champions.

The championship win scenarios

  • If Benfica wins against Guimaraes: Benfica become the champions
  • If Benfica loses against Guimaraes and Porto wins: Championship race still alive
  • If Benfica draws and Porto loses: Benfica became the champions.

Tickets are already sold out for the big clash at the Estadio da Luz on Saturday and the fans definitely feel the title win happening right in front of their eyes.

"Let's go to the game with a huge desire to win and live the story," mentioned Rui Vitoria ahead of the match.
