Lima hit a double at the Estadio da Luz on Sunday night as Jorge Jesus' side reclaimed its crown from Porto, which had won the past three Primeira Liga titles

Benfica has been crowned champion of Portugual for the first time in four years courtesy of a 2-0 win over Olhanense.

Second-placed Sporting made the Eagles wait for the title by beating Belenenses on Saturday night, but Jorge Jesus' men recorded a 2-0 win at the Estadio da Luz less than 24 hours later to move seven points clear with just two rounds remaining.

It is Benfica's 33rd Primeira Liga title but only its third in the past decade, with Porto having won the last three championships in succession, after establishing itself as the dominant force in Portugal.

The Eagles could yet secure an historic quadruple this season: they reached the final of the Taca de Portugal on Wednesday with a 3-2 aggregate win over Porto, and have a Taca da Liga semifinal against Luis Castro's men, as well as a Europa League last-four battle with Italian giant Juventus still to come.
