The 2004–05 Portuguese Liga started on 28 August 2004 with a match between Os Belenenses and Marítimo, and ended on 22 May 2005. Benfica won their 31st championship (a record at the time) with 65 points, 3 points ahead of the defending champions Porto. The league was contested by 18 clubs and it was considered one of the most competitive seasons in recent years.

The first goal of the season was scored by Belenenses' centre back Rolando. The first red card of the season was given to Vitória de Setúbal's Bruno Ribeiro, and the first yellow was given to Belenenses’s Juninho Petrolina in the opening game of the season. Benfica and Porto were both qualified for the 2005–06 UEFA Champions League group stage, and Sporting qualified for the UEFA Champions League qualifying round; in opposite, Moreirense, Estoril-Praia, and Beira-Mar were relegated to the Liga de Honra. Liédson was the top scorer with 25 goals.
