Behind the scenes at FC Porto vs Benfica

Joe Gilmore

How much do you know about Portugal’s biggest derby?

FC Porto and Benfica are two of Portugal’s biggest and most successful teams, and their rivalry is an incredibly fierce one.

But how much do we actually know about this rivalry? We travelled to Porto ahead of the most recent edition of O Classico courtesy of New Balance.

While we were there we learned more about the culture, the people of the city, and the rivalry. And of course, we could not make a trip to Portugal without trying out one of its greatest delicacies, the Francesinha.
