The 2009–10 season was Sport Lisboa e Benfica's 106th season in existence and the club's 76th consecutive season in the top flight of Portuguese football. It involved Benfica competing in the Primeira Liga, Taça de Portugal, Taça da Liga and the play-off of the UEFA Europa League. Benfica qualified for the Europa League by coming third in the previous Primeira Liga.

On 16 June 2009 Jesus replaced Quique Flores at the helm of Sport Lisboa e Benfica. Jesus implemented a 4-1-3-2 formation, in which a winger, Ramires, provided cover and assistance to the defensive midfielder, Javi Garcia, and other winger, di María, conducted the counterattacks. Aimar, as an attacking midfielder, distributed play and Saviola created space between lines for Cardozo, Aimar and di María.[1][2]

This fast-paced, attractive football [3] proved successful and in his first year he led the Reds to the first division title after a five-year wait (only two league defeats, 78 goals scored), also reaching the quarterfinals in the Europa League, losing to Liverpool on a 3–5 aggregate score (this would be the last match Benfica would lose in a run that lasted 27 games).

S.L. Benfica won both the Primeira Liga (32nd) and League Cup. It saw the definite breakthroughs of Ángel di María, David Luiz and Fábio Coentrão, while Óscar Cardozo had his best season yet, banging in 26 league goals. The only disappointments of the season was the 4–1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield in the Europa League quarter-finals second leg, where Fernando Torres hit two second half goals to knock Benfica out of Europe and the early exit at the Taça de Portugal.
