Porto reclaimed the Primeira Liga title courtesy of a Zaidu Sanusi’s added time strike to see off bitter rivals Benfica 1-0 at the Estadio da Luz on Saturday.
The Nigerian defender completed a swift counter-attack from Porto to ensure the Portuguese giants carry the day.
Zaidu Sanusi just scored an amazing late late goal for Porto to defeat rivals Benfica. They broke away on a fast break and the Nigerian defender made it look so easy, like a striker.

The effort sealed a 30th Portuguese title for FC Porto who are nine points clear at the top of the table.
Sergio Conceicao’s side went into the match knowing that they simply needed to avoid defeat to clinch the title for the 30th time with a game to spare.
An ill-tempered contest between Portugal’s two most successful clubs saw 14 yellow cards dished out – including 10 for Benfica alone – but it was Porto who were celebrating at the end.
