The exclusive sale of tickets for the second Sporting match to FC Porto members ended with an impressive number of blue waves forming tomorrow at the Estádio do Dragão at 8:15 p.m., when dragons and lions meet 2. Portuguese Cup semi-final match: 41 thousand souls have already bought a ticket.
However, it opened up sales to the general public at prices of € 11-22, inviting tables to the flood. The Blue Wave got the look of the championship in the final match when 48,109 thousand spectators gathered in a festive atmosphere to celebrate 7-0, with FC Porto defeating Portimonense. A big win added to Sporting’s defeat at Alvalade against Benfica left the Dragons a small step away from the championship.
If winning the championship was always the main goal, clearly evident in the weekly speeches of FC Porto’s coach, Sérgio Conceição never failed to express his sympathy and affection for the Portuguese Cup.
League details will be released and the Avenida dos Aliados celebration will be suspended for details only, easing the strategic constraints on the Cup. In the lion duel, the whites dominate the 2-1 lead in Alvalade with goals from Mehdi Tarem and Evanilson.
The Liga and Taça de Portugal are thus in complete harmony with FC Porto’s championship aspiration and the repetition of the doubling achieved in 2019/2020, the eighth in the history of Dragons, which has not happened since 2010/2011.
