the breakdown that stole a day’s work from FC Porto

The aircraft had a failed engine and did not take off from Lyon on Thursday evening. FC Porto returned yesterday afternoon, just in time for a light training session in Dragão.

Technical problems on the plane prevented FC Porto from returning to Portugal at the end of the game against Lyon, as planned, and forced even greater wear and tear down the home stretch of a very demanding competitive cycle.

The delegation was only able to travel yesterday afternoon because they had to wait for the arrival of a new plane and find an available slot on the runways of Saint-Exupéry airport, thus missing a day of preparation for the derby with Boavista, scheduled tomorrow, at 8:45 p.m. in Bessa.
