Benfica won Superliga

SL Benfica secured their first Portuguese title for over a decade with a 1-1 draw at Boavista FC, as title rivals FC Porto and Sporting Clube de Portugal failed to take maximum points from their final matches.

Benfica breakthrough
Giovanni Trapattoni's side required one point to lift their first SuperLiga title since 1994, and they made the perfect start when Simão Sabrosa put them ahead from the penalty spot on 38 minutes after Cadu handled in the area. Boavista responded four minutes later through an Éder header, but Benfica held on to finish the season as champions.
