The 2005–06 season in Portuguese football saw Futebol Clube do Porto, led by Co Adriaanse, clinch their 21st title and win the Portuguese Cup. Sporting Clube de Portugal secured second place, which gives them a direct entrance into next season's UEFA Champions League. Sport Lisboa e Benfica had a disappointing season; however, they returned to the spotlight of European football with a good run in the Champions League.

Sporting Clube de Braga and Clube Desportivo Nacional challenged Sporting, Benfica, and Porto for a major part of the season. Nacional, in particular, broke up Os Grandes for most of the season, beating Sporting 2-1 at home in a memorable victory, before falling away towards the end of the season. Braga finished the season in fourth place and Nacional finished fifth in the table after having slipped all the way to seventh at one point. Two famous Portuguese clubs, Vitória de Guimarães and Clube de Futebol Os Belenenses, were relegated.

Also of note was the suspension of Benfica midfielder Nuno Assis after testing positive for a banned substance in a league match [1]. This positive test has been challenged very aggressively by Benfica's management, as the tests seem to have failed to follow proper procedures [2], as 72 hours passed between the collection of the sample and the tests.

Early in the season, Benfica won the Portuguese SuperCup in a match against previous cup winner Vitória de Setúbal.

In European club competitions, Benfica reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League after eliminating Manchester United in the group phase and title-holders Liverpool in the last-32, only to be eliminated in the quarter-finals by eventual Champions Barcelona. Meanwhile, Porto had a relatively bad season, failing to qualify through the group stage and not even securing a spot in the UEFA Cup. Sporting was eliminated in the third qualifying round of the Champions by Udinese and went on to fail again in the first round of the UEFA Cup, eliminated at the hands of Halmstad. All Portuguese teams failed to qualify for the group stage of the UEFA Cup, with the exception of Vitória de Guimarães, which managed to surpass Wisła Kraków, but failed to progress past the group stages.

In international football, the Selecção secured a place in Germany's 2006 FIFA World Cup, where they were grouped with Mexico, Iran, and newcomer Angola.

Second Division[edit]

[edit]

The organization of the Second Division was changed for the 2005-06 season. The name was changed from Second Division B to Second Division, and the Northern, Central and Southern zones were abolished to be replaced by another geographical scheme with 4 alphabetically named series.

Only one team was relegated from the League of Honour at the start of the season:

16th placed Gondomar SC and 17th placed G. Desportivo de Chaves that would normally be relegated to the Second Division, were allowed to play again in the League of Honour, since 11th placed FC Felgueiras and 13th placed FC Alverca closed their football sections.

These teams were promoted from the Third Division at the start of the season:

At the end of the 2004-05 season, the winner of the Third Division Serie Azores had to a playoff with the worst placed Azorean team in the Second Division B Southern Zone. 13th placed SC Lusitânia lost the first leg 1-2 to Serie Azores champions FC Madalena, but won the second leg 1-0. Because the Portuguese system doesn't apply the away goal rule, the teams went to penalties, in which Madalena won 5-4.

Meanwhile, Académico de Viseu, that was scheduled to play in the 2005-06 season in the Second Division Series C, decided to quit early in the season, and was accordingly relegated to the district championships. Another entrance in the division was the reserve team Vitória FC "de Setúbal" B.
