Today marks 10 years since Pompey’s trip to Vitoria Guimaraes in the Uefa Cup. 

It’s regarded as one of the greatest away days in the club’s history, with the travelling Fratton faithful taking over the Portuguese town’s square in the build-up to the clash. 

Then there was the game itself later in the evening, which was just as memorable. 

The Blues took a two-goal advantage to Guimaraes after a 2-0 first-leg victory at Fratton Park.

However, the Primeira Liga outfit’s 2-0 win at Estadio D. Afonso Henriques took the tie into extra-time.

But Peter Crouch proved Pompey’s hero with a double to give the visitors a 4-2 aggregate success and sent Harry Redknapp’s men into the first round of the European competition. 

We’ve celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the Guimaraes trip with a picture gallery showing how events unfolded on the day.
