Benfica have claimed a fourth successive Portuguese title for the first time in their 113-year history, a 5-0 defeat of Guimarães enough to put them beyond reach of the chasing pack.

Benfica crowned Portuguese champions once again

 

This title triumph was Benfica captain Luisão's 18th honour since signing in 2003, outstripping Eusébio's tally of 17 and matching the haul of another Eagles legend, Mário Coluna. Only former striker Nené, with 19, has lifted more trophies with Benfica, and his record is in Luisão's sights. The Brazilian centre-back also passed the 500-mark for club appearances this term; already Benfica's top European appearance-maker with 123, the 36-year-old (following outing No513 on Saturday) trails only Nené (578), António Veloso (534) and Mário Coluna (528) in theall-time rankings.
