Benfica stay in touch at the top; Braga beat Gil Vicente

Benfica 3 – Vitoria Guimaraes 0 (Liga Sagres, November 3, 2012) An Oscar Cardozo brace and Lima’s powerful strike were enough to secure a comfortable win for the Eagles.

Braga 3 – Gil Vicente 1 (Liga Sagres, November 3, 2012) Kalidou Yero cancelled out Ze Luis’ 17th-minute opener to give the visitors hope of snatching at least a point. But Alan struck from the penalty spot and Hugo Viana netted the sealer a minute before full-time for Braga, who are three points behind Porto and Benfica.
