Schmidt, who has former Ajax attacker David Neres in Portugal, is the only coach who is still without losing points. With fifteen points from five matches, Benfica is proudly at the top of the Portuguese competition. In addition, the German led his team to a place in the Champions League through the preliminary rounds. In it, the first match was won against Maccabi Haifa.

The German was at the helm of PSV for two years before this, where he could mainly count on criticism. Although he conquered the Johan Cruijff Scale and the KNVB Cup, he was rarely able to convince the Eindhoven public. The gap to Ajax in the battle for the title remained considerable, while he did not make himself popular with his much-discussed substitution system.

Benfica currently has two points more than the also unbeaten SC Braga. The last league title of the top club dates from 2019
