"Porto" came to the century.  XXI, but Benfica is still the king of doubles

Having won the Portuguese Cup last Sunday, Porto scored the 26th “double” in Portuguese football and the ninth in its history. Benfica is the club that has won the most league and cup titles in the same season, achieving the feat 11 times.

The Blue and Whites have a more favorable recent history, with six doubles in the new century, from there they have already surpassed Sporting, who follow with six all-time.

For the first time this phenomenon took place in the 1940/41 season, when Josef Szabo was the coach of Sporting. In the 1950s, a curious fact took place when three great players of Portuguese football guaranteed a “double” in three consecutive seasons: Sporting CP (1953/54), Benfica (1954/55) and Porto (1955/56). ). .

Benfica and Porto share the lead in the largest series of doubles. Between 1956/57 and 1971/72, the Reds accomplished the feat four times, a record equaled by dragons in the new century between 2002/03 and 2010/11.

Despite the four “twins” achieved in the first two decades of the twentieth century. In the 21st century, the 80s still continue to lead the phenomenon, which has been repeated five times.

Otto Gloria is still the doubles king as he won both trophies three times in the same sporting year (1954/55, 1956/57 and 1968/69). This is followed by Joseph Szabo (1940/41 and 1953/54) and Sergio Conceição (2019/20 and 2021/22), both with two.
