Football: Benfica move top of Primeira Liga with 4-2 win over Vitoria Setubal

In the tightest of races at the top of Portugal's Primeira Liga, a 4-2 victory for Benfica over Vitoria Setubal saw the Lisbon side move ahead of Porto on goal difference at the top of the table. Rafa Silva scored twice in the first half, 19-year-old Joao Felix providing the assist on both occasions. Setubal pulled one back through Nuno Valente shortly before the break before Benfica went ahead again through the in-form Felix in the 56th minute. Haris Seferovic made it 4-1, only for the visitors to reduce the deficit through a Jhonder Cadiz penalty after Ruben Dias brought down Vasco Fernandes. Setubal had little time left to inflict further damage - and Benfica held out for a crucial victory which leaves them level with Porto on 72 points with four rounds remaining.
