There’s a lot of things to hate about modern football.
Spiralling transfer fees, mass commercialisation, players trying to get opponents booked… it’s enough to make you question your love for the beautiful game at times.
Thankfully, every and now and then you see something that reaffirms your belief that football is without a doubt the best sport this planet has to offer.
This is one of those moments.
Following Juventus’ 1-0 win over Porto in Turin, a pair of opposing fans were videoed exchanging scarves and hugging in the stands…

These fans are a credit to their clubs.
Given that opposition fans mixing in the stands often leads to violence it’s so refreshing to see this Porto fan be so magnanimous in defeat.
Juventus won 1-0 on the night through a Paulo Dybala penalty to ensure a 3-0 win on aggregate.
