The fixture Dragões vs Leões between FC Porto and Sporting CP is one of the most important football matches in Portugal. It opposes the team of Sporting Clube de Portugal and the FC Porto. It is usually seen as a dispute between the North and the South of Portugal.

In 1922, the first Championship of Portugal, forerunner to today's Portuguese Cup, was decided in a best-of-three series between Porto and Sporting, ultimately won by Porto (the Algarve and Madeira FA winners were also scheduled to participate, but could not make it to the tournament due to logistical problems). Since then there have been five other finals between the two teams, this time after more participants had been eliminated. They have also met in the League continuously since 1934 and in other Cup rounds.
