LISBON, Portugal (AP) - Portuguese leader Benfica won 2-0 at Belenenses while FC Porto edged Academica 1-0 to stay within three points of the pace-setter on Saturday.

The two top teams in the league are set to meet next weekend at Benfica’s Stadium of the Light.

But Porto, first, will visit Bayern Munich on Tuesday with a 3-1 advantage heading into their second-leg quarterfinal of the Champions League.

Jonas took both of Benfica’s goals, opening the scoring in the fifth minute before adding a second goal in the 60th.

Porto’s Hernani Santos scored the winner in the 12th.

Ricardo Quaresma never left Porto’s bench following his two-goal performance this week against Bayern. Jackson Martinez, Porto’s other goal-scorer from the first leg against Bayern, went on for the final seven minutes as a substitute.
