LISBON, Portugal (AP) -- Benfica clinched its 33rd Portuguese league title by beating bottom side Olhanense 2-0 after two goals by Lima on Sunday, bringing an end to FC Porto's three-year run at the top.

Benfica won its first domestic title since 2009-10 with two rounds to go after striker Lima scored in the 57th and 60th minutes at the Stadium of Light.

The champion can now turn its attention to winning more silverware this season.

Benfica has also reached the final of the Portuguese Cup, and the semifinals of the Europa League and Portuguese League Cup.

Benfica and Porto have monopolized the league title since Sporting Lisbon last won it in 2001-02.
