Porto v Benfica on Saturday night (kick-off: 20:30 UK) will see Portugal come to a standstill for one of the most fascinating matches seen anywhere in Europe this season.
The situation at the top of the Primeira Liga table could not be much more delicately poised after Benfica were surprisingly held to a 1-1 home draw with Estoril on Monday night.
Benfica lead the table by two points, with just one game remaining after this clash of the top two. Porto need to win to go top, any other result is likely to hand the title to the away side and long time leaders of the division.

For Benfica, the draw with Estoril could have not come at a worse time. Their previous four point gap could have seen them lose this game and still have a one point lead with their Europa League final against Chelsea coming up on Wednesday.
Nemanja Matic and Enzo Perez are both injury doubts for Benfica. Porto meanwhile have a clean bill of health.
Incredibly, both sides come into this match, billed as the “Game of the Century” in the Portuguese press undefeated.
Their previous match in January ended 2-2 with all four goals coming in 9 early first half minutes at Benfica.
Porto have announced this match is unsurprisingly a sell out and it should be a great advert for Portuguese football, with so much talent on both sides it will likely also be a humdinger.
And, there may even be some controversy with Benfica disappointed over the appointment of Pedro Proença as referee.
A trailer, released by Porto, for this mouth watering encounter is below.
