No let-up from Benfica, Porto bounce back, Braga bandwagon rolls on

In a prolonged round of games, the 18th jornada in Portugal brought wins for Benfica and Porto to further widen the gap between the top two and the rest (now 12 points). A Rafa Silva-inspired Benfica saw off Paços de Ferreira 2-0, the recently returned Portugal international bagging a goal and an assist. Porto got back to winning ways, coming from behind to defeat Gil Vicente 2-1 at the Estádio do Dragão to keep their slim title hopes alive.
