The Derby de Lisboa, also known as Derby Eterno, Derby da Segunda Circular or Derby da Capital, is the most important football derby match in Portugal. It is played between the Lisbon teams of Sport Lisboa e Benfica and Sporting Clube de Portugal. The rivalry originated back in 1907 when eight Benfica players switched to the Sporting side in search of better working conditions. With Sporting's long-winded lack of victories, the situation has since changed. The match is followed worldwide, with the game being transmitted live especially in the former Portuguese colonies.
