It was a long wait, but Benfica fans finally got what they wanted: their 33rd league title. With a powerful squad, they also won the Portuguese Cup and League Cup to secure the domestic treble, and came close to winning the Europa League after making it to the final for the second year in a row. The following summer was not as satisfying, with key players and future stars like Rodrigo, Markovic, and Oblak being sold. Experienced players in Julio Cesar, Eliseu, and Jonas have been brought in to fill in the cracks, but Benfica's real hopes may lie in wild cards like Samaris and Anderson Talisca. Jorge Jesus continues for his fifth year at the club, still hesitant to promote youth players at a time when it could help the club.
