    Thanks for listening to the Long Ball Futebol podcast! You can become a Long Ball Futebol Sócio on Patreon for just £1 a month → https://www.patreon.com/LongBallFutebol This weekend's podcast is naturally dominated by an astonishing Clássico between Porto and Benfica which saw Porto thrash Benfica 5-0 at the Estádio do Dragão, as Sergio Conceição out-manages Roger Schmidt, the Porto players outplay their Benfica counterparts, and we disect the aftermath. But that wasn't the only game in Portugal this weekend, Sporting took advantage of Benfica's loss to go back to the top of the table thanks to a win against Farense, Braga get a much needed win against Estrela, Estoril's leaky defense sees them lose against Vitória, and Arouca demolish GD Chaves away from home.
