The 2014–15 season is Sport Lisboa e Benfica's 111th season in existence and the club's 81st consecutive season in the top flight of Portuguese football.

Season overview[edit]

August[edit]

In the 111th season, Jorge Jesus started his six consecutive season, for the first time in 60 years in the club history, when János Biri started and won the 1944–45 Primeira Liga. He surpassed János Biri in number of matches managed, becaming a club record holder. After he won the 2014 Supercup he also tied with Cosme Damião in number of trophies won, with 8, surpassing both János Biri and Otto Glória. It is the eleventh season with Luís Filipe Vieira as president. For the first time since 2010, Benfica played the Supercup, winning a previous Supercup in 2005.

After winning an historic treble, Benfica lost five players of the starting eleven. Guilherme Siqueira returned to Granada after Benfica opted to waive the option to purchase him.[3] Ezequiel Garay left to Zenit on 25 June 2014, having played 136 matches and scoring 12 goals in his three seasons for Benfica.[4] On 15 July, Lazar Marković, with only a year in Lisbon, left for Liverpool, having played 49 games with 7 goals scored.[5][6] The next day, Jan Oblak signed for Atlético Madrid, with the Slovenian playing only 26 games with 22 clean sheets, conceding 6 goals.[7][8] Rodrigo and André Gomes were sold back in January to an investment firm[9] and after that they were loaned to Valencia in July; Matić signed for Chelsea in January.[10] Óscar Cardozo, the club ninth all-time top scorer also left the club after seven seasons, playing 293 games and scoring 172 times, becoming the foreigner with most goals. He later joined Trabzonspor in Turkey.[11]

On 10 August 2014, Benfica won its fifth Supercup beating Rio Ave 3–2 on penalties after a draw without goals. A severely remodeled squad, only presented seven starters of the Portuguese Cup final played just two months earlier, Luisão, Maxi Pereira, Rúben Amorim, Eduardo Salvio, Enzo Pérez, Nicolás Gaitán and Lima, while Talisca, Derley, Eliseu and Bebé made their official debut for Benfica. Benfica dominated throughout the match but was unable to score on multiple occasions, finally beating Rio Ave on penalties, after Artur defended three of them.[12][13] With this conquest, Benfica became the only Portuguese club to have won all four domestic titles in a year.

On 17 August, in the league's first day, Benfica beat Paços de Ferreira by two nil, with goals from Maxi Pereira and Salvio, with Artur saving a penalty in the tenth minute. Additionally, Benfica ended their negative record in the first matchday, winning for the first time in ten seasons, the first with Jorge Jesus and the second during the ten-year term of Luís Filipe Vieira.[14]

On 22 August, Benfica signed Samaris for €10 million and set a release clause of €45 million.[15] He is intended as a replacement for Matić and Fejsa.[16] Two days later, Benfica beat Boavista at the Estádio do Bessa, with a sole goal from a strike by Eliseu, from 25 meters out.[17] During the match played in an artificial turf, Rúben Amorim got severely injured,[18] with news in next day reporting an anterior cruciate ligament injury, which will ruled him out of competition until at least 2015.[19] Benfica is also without Fejsa until 2015.

On 31 August, Benfica draw against Sporting CP with Artur making a mistake allowing Slimani to score the second goal of the match (1–1). It was the first league goal for Sporting since 29 April 2007 at the Estádio da Luz. It was also the first time in seven seasons that Sporting made any points in a league match against Benfica, while playing as a visitor at the Derby de Lisboa.[20]

September[edit]

After the early September break for the Euro 2016 qualifying, Benfica returned with a 0–5 win at the Bonfim against the local Vitória de Setúbal, with a hat-trick from Anderson Talisca, in his first goals in the Primeira Liga. Furthermore, Samaris and Cristante made their debuts for Benfica, while Ola John scored his first goal in the league.[21] Days later, on 16 September, in the first matchday of the Champions League, Benfica lost 2–0 to Zenit. Hulk scored in the fifth minute, Artur was sent off in the eighteen minute for crashing against Danny outside of the box, and former Benfica player Witsel scoring the second goal in the twenty-second minute. It was Benfica's first home defeat in 51 matches, and the first home defeat in the Champions League since 2 October 2012.[22][23] On 21 September, Benfica struggled to defeat Moreirense, suffering an early goal from João Pedro in the debut of Júlio César. In the second half, after Marcelo Oliveira was sent off for tackling Talisca, Eliseu scored from 30 meters out; eight minutes later Maxi Pereira untied the match; and in the final minutes Lima scored from penalty kick after being tackled in the box.[24][25] On 27 September, Benfica defeated Estoril-Praia with two goals from Talisca and another one from Lima. Winning away 2–0, the Eagles allowed Estoril to tie the match, with goals from Diogo Amado and Kléber, but in an individual effort from Derley, Lima scored the decisive goal.[26]

October[edit]

On 1 October, Benfica lost to Bayer Leverkusen (3–1) at the BayArena and remained point-less in the Champions League group stage.[27] Nonetheless, four days later Benfica won 4–0 against Arouca, in the debut of Lisandro, Jonas and Pizzi, maintaining the lead in Portuguese league.[28] On 18 October, Benfica defeated Covilhã (2–3) with a hat-trick from Jonas in the third round of Taça de Portugal.[29] On 22 October, Benfica draw away at Monaco (0–0) and achieved their first point in the Champions League. On 26 October, Benfica lost for the first time in the league, (1–2) at Braga, but kept the first position. On 31 October, Benfica beat Rio Ave (1–0) with a goal from Talisca, who scored his fourth consecutive goal in Primeira Liga.

November[edit]

On 4 November, Benfica beat Monaco with a goal from Talisca and secured the first victory in group stage of Champions League.[30] On 9 November, Benfica won at Nacional (1–2), with goals from Salvio and Jonas, and maintained the lead of Primeira Liga. On 22 November, Benfica advanced to the fifth round of Portuguese Cup by beating Moreirense (4–1), with Jonas and Salvio scoring two goals each. On 26 November, Benfica lost at Zenit (1–0) and were eliminated from European competitions following the Monaco win at Leverkusen. On 30 November, Benfica won at Académica (0–2) with goals from Nicolás Gaitán and Luisão, and kept the first place in the Portuguese league.

December[edit]

On 6 December, Benfica continued leading the Portuguese league by defeating Belenenses (3–0) with goals from Lima, Enzo Pérez and Salvio. On 9 December, Benfica draw with Bayer Leverkusen (0–0). On 14 December, Benfica defeated Porto at the Estádio do Dragão (0–2) with two goals from Lima, securing the first place in Primeira Liga with 6 more points than the second classified Porto. On 19 December, Benfica was eliminated from Taça de Portugal against Braga (1–2). On 21 December, Benfica beat Gil Vicente (1–0) in Primeira Liga with a goal from Nicolás Gaitán.

Rules for classification: 1) points; 2) points in matches between tied teams; 3) goal difference in matches between tied teams; 4) away goals in matches between tied teams; 5) goal difference; 6) wins; 7) goals scored. The LPFP decided that only criteria 1, 5, 6 and 7 would be applied to establish the classification during the competition.[87] Qualification for the 2015–16 Europa League has changed:[88] the best-placed non-qualified domestic championship club will enter the UEFA Europa League from the 2015–16 season, rather than the domestic cup runners-up, should the domestic cup winners also qualify for the UEFA Champions League via the final championship standings.
