Day two of the Portuguese Youth League has come to an end, with the entire Besa stadium awash with football celebrations and Europe's best teams on the field.

After a morning that decided who would advance to the quarter-finals of the competition and the Minho derby scheduled for the “Youth Prize” final, Saturday afternoon began with a duel between Benfica and Paris Saint-Germain, the two teams that had qualified for the quarter-finals. In good condition since the start of the tournament.

The young red stars tried everything to improve, but the Parisians emerged victorious (4-2) thanks to a great contribution from Messi Polo, proving with two goals and an excellent performance, that not only in name he can achieve this. He can be compared to the Argentine star of Inter Miami.

This was followed by Porto vs. Sevilla, the most balanced match of the day. The Blue and White opened the scoring through Gabriel Castro, but Sevilla's goalkeepers – who varied in the moments of the match – kept the score within reach of the Andalusians, who equalized in the first half. Nothing changed until the end and the penalty shootout followed, where Porto goalkeeper Aleix excelled, ensuring another Portuguese team's qualification to the semi-finals, leading the team, the coaching staff and all Dragon fans to ecstasy with your defences.

The same scenario was present in the match between Sporting and Barcelona, ​​where two of the best teams in the world faced each other on paper. However, there is only one name that can be pointed out as the man of the game, and if the tournament continues, it is Kabenga Silva.

The striker, who is only nine years old, was the center of attention and the Catalan team was the victim this time (2-0). Two goals of the highest quality and a direct qualification to the semi-finals were the perfect recipe for a young man who looks like he can shine on the big stage.

The day ended with Betis defeating the English with the same score (2-0), with special emphasis on the final goal from close range.

The rivals met in the semi-finals of the Portuguese Youth League. Sporting will meet French team Paris Saint-Germain at 10 a.m. on Sunday, and Porto will face, at 11 a.m., Betis from Seville. A combination of factors that add classic flavor to the final finish.
