Saturday's finale was attended by 6000 ecstatic Portuguese fans.
They could see the danes overcome a nervous start and win 2-1 over Navi.
And the support from the Portuguese fans made a huge impression on Emil Reif.

Nicolai Reedtz was impressed by the Portuguese fans in Lisbon.

- We have had a fantastic season and goes on pause as the world's best teams. It is almost impossible to do it again in 2019, but we will certainly do everything we can to keep the position and win more titles.
