In the 1990s, Porto began to dominate Portuguese football, winning a record five consecutive league titles. The intensity between these two sides in the 90s was culminated by the fact that former Portuguese international teammates, João Vieira Pinto who played for Benfica and Paulinho Santos who played for Porto publicly declared their dislike for each other. The new millennium saw a continuation of Porto's dominance. Porto would reach the heights of their 1987 European Cup final win after José Mourinho guided the Dragões to the UEFA Cup in 2003 and the UEFA Champions League in 2004. Benfica won the league title in 2005, for the first time in over ten years to halter Porto's momentum. During the second half of the 2010s, both sides battled out for top spot, when the rivalry intensified due to Benfica's Cristian Rodríguez switching alliances to Porto in the summer of 2008. He became the third Benfica player in recent history to have switched allegiances to Porto. In 2010, after four seasons, Benfica won their 32nd league title.
