A busy day at the airport
Flights full of festive English fans wearing football jerseys and handkerchiefs caught us every five minutes at Porto airport on Saturday.
About 40 flights from England are expected in Porto during the day, with first fans arriving at 8:40 am (07:40 GMT).
Upon arrival, supervisors led fans of the two teams to the opposite sides of the airport, while several buses waited to be driven to the city center where there were fan sections.

Why are some people in Porto so unhappy?
The final decision to release the COVID-19 final regulations angered locals as hundreds of England fans without masks filled the bars of Porto on Friday night.
Some people in Porto fear exposure to coronavirus, a highly contagious disease that has spread to other parts of England after it was first identified in India.
“When he opens it [the stadiums] for English, it should be opened [them] all, “said Alexandre Magalhaes, marching through Porto, which was packed with fans.
A Twitter user wrote: “This is a disgrace to anyone who continues to follow health laws.”
How have both sides fared this season?
City won the English Premier League and the League Cup, third in a row and fifth in seven days.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have finished fourth in the league and lost the FA Cup final to Leicester.
Chelsea beat City twice this season, 1-0 in FA Cup matches and 2-1 away in the Premier League on May 8. But City defeated the Blues in London 3-1 in January.
First chance for City or Chelsea to win again?
Chelsea won the Champions League in 2012, beating Bayern Munich on penalties. They have won the Europa League twice since then.
Manchester City make their final appearance in the Champions League.
Both of these bosses are not new at the moment. Spanish boss Pep Guardiola wants to win the Champions League for the third time after leading Barcelona to victory in 2009 and 2011. Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is looking for his first Champions League win. Last season, the German took Paris St-Germain to the final, losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich.
