The fixture Dragões vs Leões between FC Porto and Sporting CP is one of the most important football matches in Portugal. It opposes the teams of Sporting and Porto.

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.
