Sporting entered the field after Benfica and already knew that they would have to win to keep the distance of 4 points to the rivals, and fulfilled, won by 2-0, with goals from Slimani.
The goals only came in the second half, but it was a difficult victory, Sporting keeps the pressure on FC Porto, which plays today at 6 pm with Paços de Ferreira.
Slimani scored at 46 minutes the first and at 52 minutes the second, Sporting could have scored more but the aim was misaligned, or too aligned, as in Paulinho’s shot to the crossbar.
Alvalade’s team follows in pursuit of FC Porto, now with three points less but with one more game, Arouca can be in the relegation zone, depending on the results of Tondela and Moreirense.
