Benfica hold a slender advantage over FC Porto in the Primeira Liga in Portugal.
The situation at the top of the table in France might be tight, but the Primeira Liga contest in Portugal has been a slugfest between Benfica and FC Porto since the start of the campaign.
The Lisbon giants, who have 55 points, currently hold a two-point advantage over their rivals after their single-goal win at Beira Mar at the weekend while Porto drew 0-0 with Sporting.
But even a cigarette paper could not separate the two Portuguese clubs in form as they chase down the championship.
Benfica will travel to the Estadio do Dragao on the penultimate weekend of the season on May 12 in what is expected to be a winner-takes-all collision.
The other member of Portugal's "Tres Grande," Sporting, are well off the pace this season in 10th place, leaving surprise package Pacos Ferreira (39 points) and Braga (38) to fight it out for the final Champions League spot.
