FC Porto defeated Farense 5-1 during the 32nd round of the Primeira League played at the Estádio do Dragão.  

Forced to win in order to prevent Sporting from becoming champions and avoid the approaching Benfica, Sérgio Conceição’s team wrapped up the game early. Taremi opened the scoring after five minutes, converting a penalty committed by Licá.   

The Iranian striker also contributed the assists for the goals from Toni Martínez on the 14th minute, and Luis Diaz on the 20th minute. And it only took 20 minutes for the dragon to KO Farense.  

The situation worsened for Jorge Costa’s team with the expulsion of Bilel. Tiago Martins initially showed a yellow, but after reviewing VAR, he corrected his decision and Farense was reduced to 10 men. 

In the second half, Mehdi Taremi continued his dominant display scoring his second goal on the 58th minute. The Iranian was unsurprisingly elected the man of the match.

Joao Mario completed the Porto scoring route on the 84th minute. The goals continued, as the visitors managed to get a consolation as Lica grabbed one back for Farense on the 89th minute.

With this result, FC Porto is five points behind Sporting and seven more points than Benfica, with both teams’ also having one game less.
