Andy Brassell in Portugal

And how it was. Benfica's five-goal mauling has left them deep in shock, and few in Portugal doubting that the title will be heading back to its habitual home in the north after a one-season 'loan' to the capital club, even if November is only just beginning. Porto's win stretched their lead to ten points over the defending champions - their nearest challengers - with just ten games gone, and their unerring form to date (nine wins and a draw) is as ominous for Benfica as their own struggles.
