FC Porto won their fourth league title in a row and the 24th of their club history after beating Nacional Madere 1-0 on Monday. The 'Dragoes' could make it a double victory on May 31 when they play Pacos de Ferreira in the Portugese Cup final.

AFP - FC Porto clinched a fourth successive Portuguese league title on Sunday when they defeated Nacional Madere 1-0.

The only goal of the game was scored by defender and Portugal skipper Bruno Alves in the 48th minute from a corner by Raul Meireles.

Porto have 66 points, six ahead of Sporting Lisbon with two games left, but have a better head-to-head record.
