History of the Benfica vs Porto rivalry
The history of the game goes back to 1912, when Benfica won an exhibition game between the two by a score of 8-2.
But before 1934 when the Primeira Liga was founded, the two clubs played within regional leagues, so matchups were few and far between. The first official match between the two was the final of the 1931 Campeonato de Portugal, the first national cup competition in Portugal (Benfica won, 3-0).
Since then, the two have taken turns, along with Lisbon’s Sporting CP, with periods of dominance in the Portuguese game.
Players like Eusébio, Nené, José Águas, Ángel Di Maria, David Luiz, João Félix, Pepe, Jorge Costa, Joao Pinto, Deco, Teófilo Cubillas and many others have graced the rivalry over the decades. Many quality mangers have prowled the sidelines as well, including José Mourinho, who managed both sides.
