Sport Lisboa e Benfica is a professional Portuguese football club based in the city of Lisbon, Portugal. Commonly referred to as Benfica, the club currently competes in the Primeira Liga, which is the top division in Portuguese football. Benfica are one of the “big three” in Portuguese football alongside FC Porto and Sporting CP, all of whom have never been relegated from the top division in Portugal.

Benfica currently play their home matches at the Estadio da Luz, which is one of the most recognisable football stadiums in all of Europe. It has been their home since 2003 and replaced their former home of the same name. It has a maximum capacity of 64,642 and is a UEFA category four stadium that also hosts Benfica women’s matches. The 2014 and 2020 Champions League finals were both held at the Estadio da Luz.

Benfica Honours

Benfica are the most decorated club in the history of Portuguese football, having won all of the major honours in the pyramid a record number of times. They have won the Primeira Liga 37 times in their history, as well as the Taca de Portugal 26 times, which is Portugal’s oldest cup competition. In addition, they have won the Taca da Liga seven times and the Supertaca Candido de Oliveira eight times. In addition, they have three Campeonato de Portugal titles and one Latin Cup and Iberian Cup apiece.

Without a doubt, the jewel in the crown as far as Benfica fans are concerned are their two European cups, which they won in back-to-back years between 1961 and 1962. The first came when they defeated Barcelona 3-2 in the final in Bern, before then beating Real Madrid 5-3 12 months later in Amsterdam, overcoming the famous team that featured Puskas and Di Stefano in the process.

Benfica History

Benfica were voted 12th in the FIFA Club of the Century award for the 20th century, having been one of the most successful clubs in Europe throughout the period. In recent times, they have become a platform for some of the best players in the world to showcase their talents before being sold for huge money. The club in recent times have sold the likes of Ederson, Jan Oblak, Joao Cancelo, David Luiz, Ruben Dias, Fabio Coentrao, Ramires, Renato Sanches, Axel Witsel, Bernardo Silva, Angel di Maria, Joao Felix and Darwin Nunez for big profits.

Undoubtedly the most famous player in the club’s history is Eusebio, who scored 473 goals in 440 matches in all competitions between 1961-1975. He is one of the most famous players of all-time and won 11 league titles and one European Cup. That record overtook Jose Aguas’ old record of 379 goals in 384 matches between 1950-1963. Nene is the leader in appearances made for Benfica, having played 575 times for the club in his career. He is followed by Veloso and Luisao in the list, who each played 538 times for Benfica, and the latter won a club-record 20 titles during his time in Lisbon.
