A Historic Clash: Tracing Inter Milan vs FC Porto Timeline

Inter Milan and FC Porto

Club Origins

In the early 1960s, Italian clubs formed a powerful cartel known as the “Calcio Azzurro”. This group of teams was able to keep prices high and control players through contracts. As a result, only a few teams were able to compete with Inter Milan and AC Milan.

FC Porto, founded in 1904, was one of the smaller clubs in Italy at the time. However, they were determined to break into the cartel. In 1969, they staged an upset victory over Inter Milan in the European Cup. This victory helped create a rivalry between Inter Milan and FC Porto that continues to this day.

First Season: 1907-1908

On September 24, 1907, FC Porto kicked off their first ever season in the Primeira Liga against fellow newcomers Trindade. Newly crowned Portuguese champions Sporting Lisbon had decided to field an all-Portuguese lineup for the inaugural campaign and it was no surprise that FC Porto ran riot in a 3-1 victory.

That win set the tone for a successful inaugural season for “O Dragão”. They finished comfortably in first place with 47 points from 26 matches, conceding just five goals and recording 10 clean sheets. In addition, defender João Pereira – who went on to captain FC Porto – was voted Primeira Liga Player of the Year.

The following year saw a seismic shift in Portuguese football as Trindade merged with two more clubs to form Union Avenue. The newly formed side were determined not to be outdone by their new arrivals and sprung into action by winning their opening match 4-1 away to Penafiel. However, it would be another four months until they registered their next win – this time courtesy of a 2-1 home victory over Atlético Madrid.

FC Porto’s impressive start to 1908 meant they were top of the league at Christmas and duly retained that title by 12 points from second placed Sporting CP. The Dragons managed eight clean sheets during the season while also registering seven victories by at least two goals (including an 8-0 trouncing of Belenenses). Defender Álvaro Cun
