Benfica v Nacional live stream & tips - Eagles to secure championship on final day of season

Brendan O'Neill 13 May 2016
  • A win for Benfica will see them win a 35th Primeira Liga title
  • Eagles boast two point advantage over Sporting heading into final game of season

Benfica are 90 minutes away from a third successive Primeira Liga title and need only beat Nacional on the final day of the season on Sunday to maintain their dominance in the Portuguese top flight.

Benfica v Nacional kicks off at 1700 BST on Sunday, May 15. Watch & bet on live streaming football at bet365 > sports > live streaming football

The Eagles play host to Nacional at Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica knowing a 12th league win in a row would land them their 35th championship crown, although a slip up and victory for Sporting Club at SC Braga could see them pipped at the post.

Benfica go into the clash with a two point lead in the standings over Sporting thanks to a 2-0 win over Maritimo last time out.

"It was a tough game, but it was a well-deserved, categorical win from my team. We had a big setback in the middle of the game, but we responded with class and won deservedly. My players are to be congratulated, because they were brave today," manager Rui Vitoria said after the game.

Benfica had been reduced to 10-men when Bayern Munich bound Renato Sanches was sent off for a second yellow card in the 37th minute and the 18-year-old is set to miss this weekend's crunch encounter through suspension as a result.

Sanches, who was confirmed as the Bundesliga champions' first summer signing for an initial €35million fee on Tuesday, will be missed but but the Eagles have more than enough strength in depth to continue their winning run and hand Nacional a fourth defeat in five outings.

Nacional have shipped 10 goals in their last four outings in the Primeira Liga and have little to play for here with top flight safety assured and European football way out of reach.

The visitors lost 4-1 at home in the reverse fixture so we are backing a comfortable Benfica win.
