Porto maintained their stranglehold on the Portuguese topflight after clinching their 27th league title and third in a row following a 2-0 away win against Pacos de Ferreira on Sunday.
Argentine playmaker Lucho Gonzalez converted a 23rd minute penalty while Colombia’s Jackson Martinez double the lead in the second half to give Porto their 14th crown from the last 20 seasons.
Porto ended the campaign one point clear of second-placed Benfica who they beat in a crucial top-of-the-table clash last weekend.
