He made his first-team debut at the age of 19, but his connection to the Club started much earlier… Tiago Araújo joined the Braga Training Center in 2011/12, coming from the Escola Academia Sporting da Póvoa de Varzim. After two seasons, the player, born on March 27, 2001, moved to Benfica Campus as a U-14 player.
In eight seasons, the 19-year-old player born in Vila do Conde – U-17 National Champion (2017/18) and U-15 National Champions (2015/16) – arrived at Benfica's first team, after having passed through all the Youth levels (U-15s, U-17s, U-19s and U-23s).
On November 21, 2020 –2020/21 season, in which he also made his debut with the B Team –, Tiago Araújo was launched by Jorge Jesus in the match from the 3rd round of the Portuguese Cup. At 68', the left-footed player came off the bench to replace Ferreyra, in the away game at Paredes (win by 0-1).
