Sport Lisboa e Benfica (S.L.Benfica) is a Portuguese sports club, with 1 of the 3 professional football teams that have never been relegated from the Primeira Liga, the top professional association football division of the Portuguese football league system. The Águias (Eagles), also known as the Encarnados (Reds), are the most successful club in terms of titles won -- 81 major trophies. However, though they have been runners-up 3 times, the Europa League title has eluded them. (This is 2nd-tier competition for European club football; the Union of European Football Associations Champions League is the #1 match-up.) They have also been Intercontinental Cup and European Cup runners-up 7 times. The Águias lost the 2013 contest to Chelsea, 2-1.
