Many members of the Benfica “No Name Boys” fans will share in the disrespect caused by the Haiduk Split fans on Tuesday night in the historic center of Guimarães. As the Porto channel learned, after several minutes of chaos, the group of more than 100 people boarded five Portuguese-registered buses towards the city of Porto.
At VCI, where the group was intercepted, new chaos ensued. Near the Baranhos Junction, where the buses stopped, dozens of supporters fled on foot, while the authorities tried to intercept them.
Speaking to SIC Notícias, a witness, who was in a pub in central Guimarães at the time of the “invasion” of Haydock Split’s supporters, confirmed that there were Portuguese in the group. According to Marta Mendes, phrases such as “Guimarães is ours” and “Let’s go through this burning city” were heard.
