Benfica 2-0 Olhanense

Benfica celebrate

Benfica won their 33rd Portuguese league title thanks to a deserved victory over Olhanense.

Brazilian striker Lima scored in the 57th and 60th minutes to seal the championship - ahead of second-placed Sporting Lisbon - with two games left.

Benfica had finished second in each of the last three seasons, having last been champions in 2009-10.

They are at home again on Thursday, against Juventus in the Europa League semi-final first leg.

Journeyman Lima, 30, joined Benfica in 2012 from fellow Portuguese side Braga.

"This is the most important goal of my career," he said. "I am so grateful to everyone. This is the highlight of my professional life."
