Portugal: Derby de Lisboa

Written by De Twaalfde Man

My second clash between Sporting CP and SL Benfica. This time with a 12 on Tour trip. A whole weekend with over ten football lunatics in sunny Lisbon. Interesting Portugese football culture with a crazy Derby de Lisboa as magnificent grande finale.

The derby was just madness. Counting six goals, three disallowed goals, a red card, beautiful tifo, pyro and a lot of passion. Especially Sporting CP had everything to play for. Losing the game would probably the end of any league title chances. You’d expect that they would give everything. On the contrary…Sporting CP gave a poort performance and was very lucky the game ended 2-4. An impression:

Passionate about football. Loves the game, especially al that happens around the pitch. Prefers to attend matches between the fanatics, the ultras, to experience football how it should be and if possible capture the passion on pictures telling the story. Crazy about authentic football culture, old stadiums and has a soft spot for the Balkans. Travels all around Europe and has been named "derby specialist" bij Panenka Magazine.
