Nurtured at Benfica Campus, Nuno Tavares had an opportunity to be promoted to the first team of Sport Lisboa e Benfica, following the Club’s bet on home-grown talent.
He is a left-back but his versatility and ability to play well with both feet led the coach Bruno Lage
to put him on the right flank during the International Champions Cup – where he was the most used player
– and in the first official matches of the 2019/20 season.
Strong, fast and very offensive, Nuno Tavares is seen as a modern full-back, able to cover the
entire flank and create chances with his assertive crosses. Defensively, he gives plenty of guarantees.
He is international with Portugal's youth teams.
