porto vs benfica tickets and transport

We are wanting to go to see the porto vs benfica game and can not find anywhere to buy the ticket or a way to get back as the game will probably finish about 11pm. Can anyone shed some light on a solution?

You have to commit murder to get a ticket unless you are a club member.

I assume you mean the Benfica v Porto game on Saturday 30th, ko 845pm.

The official Benfica website says that tickets are on sale only to members.

Porto will have a few tickets but I dare say these will be even more difficult to get hold of.

You don't say where you need to get back to after the game. Can perhaps help if you tell!

Are you referring to the game next weekend?

If so, this game takes place in Lisbon, so really you would need a car iin order to get back to Porto that night.

If you're referring to the game later on in the season in Porto, then the stadium has its' own metro station so getting back to the centre isn't a problem. Tickets, however is another story.

There are no trains after the game from Lisbon to Porto until 7am the next morning.

The RENEX bus company has a departure from Lisbon Oriente to Porto at 0030 Sunday morning then nothing until 730 (www.renex.pt); the other bus company's website www.rede-expressos.pt is not working!

Even if you got a ticket, there will be about 50,000 other people finding their way home at, as you say, around 1100 at night. No fun in a strange city.

It's live on TV of course, so I should imagine there will be a few bars in Porto showing the game.
