Top 5: top scorers
Top 10: most used players
Eight academy graduates on the pitch
At Benfica, the bet in youth development is something taken from granted. And if there is a coach that understands and knows the potential of the youngsters from Benfica Campus that coach is Bruno Lage. In the record of 25 wins in the Liga NOS, the manager used eight players nurtured in Seixal: Rúben, Ferro, Florentino, Gedson, João Félix, Jota, Tomás Tavares, and Nuno Tavares. From these players, three are even in the top 10 of the most used players in the 25 wins (Rúben, Ferro e João Félix).
