After visiting the Estádio José Alvalade from Sporting CP, we went to Atlético CP and their beautiful Estádio da Tapadinha, a way too big temple with a capacity of 10.000 and built in 1926. The opening game was played at the 26th of June 1946 between Carcavelinhos and Sporting CP (3-4).Arriving at the stadium a security agent made issues because of my camera and after promissing I wouldn't use it to shoot pictures, the let me take my camera with me. (But they had no problem if I shot pictures with my phone.....)

It was still raining hard and we were lucky as there was a cover for their 3 top tier rows. The game started very exciting and was very promissing. Leixoes took a quick lead and Alético got a few good chances, including a penalty but it was 0-1 at half time while it could have been 3 or even 4-1. The second half was one of the most boring second halves I ever saw.. But anyway, the ground was really beautiful, which is the most important thing.
