Sporting CP players André Pinto and Radosav Petrović had some seriously bad luck in their match against Porto after they both broke their noses.
Pinto came off after he picked up his injury and was replaced by Petrović, who ended up breaking his nose after two minutes of being on the pitch.
Unfortunately for the 29-year-old defensive midfielder, he played 40 minutes while he carried the injury to his nose.
"Petrović showed all his character and value yesterday, Valorize SL," one Twitter user wrote.
Another person wrote on Reddit: "That had to be painful."
Yeah, that had to be painful.

Following on from the match, Sporting CP president Frederico Varandas revealed that both players had fractured their noses.
"We had two players with fractures of the nose bone, we happened to have everything, but they were two real lions," he told A Bola.
Fernando Santos opened the scoring for Porto in the second half, while Bas Dost equalised for Sporting CP from the spot kick.
However, Sporting CP would emerge victorious in the Taça da Liga (Portuguese League Cup) clash after securing a 3-1 win on penalties.
Porto, meanwhile, have their Champions League clash with Roma to look forward to next month.
Who will progress in the Champions League out of Roma and Porto?
