Porto fail to advance but their fans continue to support

Last night Porto were knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich in a humiliating 6-1 defeat (7-4 on aggregate), but their fans were not disheartened. We all saw Müller leading the celebrations with the Bayern faithful after the match, but what you may not have seen was the reception the Porto team got at the airport from their fans when they arrived back in Portugal late last night. Not willing to let the defeat get them or the team down, hundreds of Porto fans flocked to the airport where their side were returning to and showed their support. Waving scarves and flags, and chanting when their team got off the plane, the Porto fans showed that you can still celebrate and support even in defeat. What a moment!

Here are the Porto fans sending their team off before the tie against Bayern...

And here they are welcoming them back at 3am... Amazing support!
