Feyenoord have a one-point lead over PSV, who were held 1-1 at home by Willem II Tilburg. A point further behind are Ajax, who beat Cambuur Leeuwarden 3-1, with Dennis Bergkamp on target twice. Theo Snelders, the Aberdeen goalkeeper, is also in the Dutch squad - which contains no PSV players.
Paulo Futre, the striker who snubbed his former club, Sporting Lisbon, by joining Benfica when he returned to Portugal from Atletico Madrid in January, scored a 66th-minute winner as his new side beat Bobby Robson's Sporting 1-0 last night. Benfica are three points behind the leaders, Porto, who overcame Espinho by the same margin, with Jorge Couto the scorer.Reuse content
