Supporter ‘stabbed to death’ in Porto title celebrations after last-gasp win over Benfica
A person was stabbed to death in the aftermath of Porto’s Portuguese league title celebrations, according to reports in the country’s media. Hundreds of people gathered in the vicinity of the scene as emergency services attempted to revive the individual, who was ‘not able to resist their injuries’.
Porto regained the Primeira Liga with a dramatic 1-0 win over Benfica on Saturday night. Zaidi Sanusi scored in the fourth minute of injury time to clinch the club’s first league title in two years.
But there were ugly scenes outside the Estadio do Dragao later in the night. Fans had seemingly assembled at their home ground to welcome back the team following their trip to Benfica.
According to Portuguese publication Record, one supporter was stabbed outside the ground in the early hours of Sunday morning. With hundreds watching on, emergency services were unable to revive the individual.
A woman was also ‘seriously injured’ in the incident. She was transported to hospital.
Porto were crowned champions with one game to spare. They have won 28 of their 33 matches and lost just once throughout the entire league campaign.
