The 2013–14 Taça de Portugal was the 74th season of the Taça de Portugal, the premier Portuguese football knockout cup competition organised by the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF). It is contested by 156 teams from the top four tiers of Portuguese football. The competition began with the first-round matches in September 2013, and will conclude with the final on 18 May 2014, at the Estádio Nacional in Oeiras.[1]

The winners of the Taça de Portugal earn the right to play in the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League group stage, unless they have already qualified for European competitions due to their league placing. In this case, the runners-up take their place – provided they have not also qualified through league placing – but enter the competition in the third qualifying round.

The league champions and cup winners Benfica will play the 2014 Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira against the runners-up of the Taça de Portugal.

Benfica defeated Rio Ave 1–0 and won the Portuguese Cup for a record 25th, establishing a new record of doubles (10) and became the first club to win the treble of Primeira Liga, Taça de Portugal and Taça da Liga.

Format[edit]

As in the previous season, the competition format was organized in a knockout system consisting of seven rounds preceding the final match. The 79 teams competing in the newly formed Campeonato Nacional de Seniores (third tier), the 26 best relegated teams from the 2012–13 Third Division (extinct fourth tier) and the 18 champions of the District cups will enter the first round, with 35 of those teams receiving a bye. In the second round, Segunda Liga teams will join the first-round winners and the remaining teams that received a bye in the previous round. The second-round winners will advance to the third round, where they will meet the top tier Primeira Liga teams for the first time.[2] Unlike the previous rounds, which are contested as one-legged fixtures, the semi-finals were played over two legs in a home-and-away basis. The final will be played at a neutral venue, the Estádio Nacional in Oeiras.
