The 2004–05 season was Sport Lisboa e Benfica's 101st season in existence and the club's 71st consecutive season in the top flight of Portuguese football. It involved Benfica competing in the Primeira Liga, Taça de Portugal and the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League. Benfica qualified for the Champions League by finishing 2nd in the previous Primeira Liga. Benfica also contested the Supertaça for the first time since 1996.

In Giovanni Trapattoni only season, Benfica won the Primeira Liga for a 31st time, its first league title since 1994, after an 11 year wait, the longest in club history. A Luisão's late winner against arch rivals Sporting in the penultimate round helped Benfica keep a 3 point gap into the last round, with Benfica securing the title with a draw away at Boavista. The 65 points claimed by Benfica in the 2004–05 season was actually nine points less than in the previous season. An extremely irregular season by the Big Three, in which Benfica was the most regular, secured the title.

In the Taça de Portugal, Benfica reached the final for a second time in a row, and could claim a double for the first time since 1987, but was surprised by Vitória Setúbal.

For the European competitions, Benfica was quickly dispatched by Anderlecht in the Champions League third qualifying round. Being relegated to the UEFA Cup, it successfully passed his group in second place, but lost in the first knockout round with eventual winners CSKA Moscow.
