The Portuguese giants stormed to the SuperLiga title, but their achievement was overshadowed by a six-point deduction they received for attempting to bribe referees during the 2003/04 campaign.
The deduction did not stop them being crowned champions but the admission criteria for the Champions League states a club "must not be or have been involved in any activity aimed at arranging or influencing the outcome of a match at national or international level". That could spell trouble for Porto, with UEFA admitting the situation was "being looked at".
