The 2018/19 season ended with the conquest of the 37th National Title in Benfica's history and also with a player from the Reds as the Top Scorer of the competition. This is the 20th time that happens, with Seferovic (23 goals) adding his name to other goalscoring legends.
In an attack set up with two forwards (4x4x2), the Swiss player set off to a dream second half of the season, com 16 goals, to which were added the seven obtained in the first half of the Liga NOS.
All the goals from the striker were from open play. Just in the calendar year of 2019, with Bruno Lage at the helm, he scored 19 goals in 18 matches (1,06 per game), needing just 74’ to score and standing alongside with Mbappé and Messi. At the age of 27, he carried out the best season of his career.
