The gates of Estádio da Luz opened to the supporters, almost five thousand (7.5% of the capacity), and, respecting the rules of the DGS, the joy, dressed in nostalgia, danced between the stands and the pitch. As the icing on the cake, a solid display and a 3-0 win over Standard Liège on matchday 2 of Group D of the Europa League.
Next on the eagles' calendar is the trip to Estádio do Bessa to face Boavista at 9 pm on Monday, November 2, on matchday 6 of the Liga NOS.
