Schmidt's unbeaten run hits new high

Benfica Blog
Benfica manager Roger Schmidt continues his impressive unbeaten run in all competitions since taking over at the club during the summer. Schmidt's Benfica squad has gone twenty-one games without a loss and is unbeaten in all competitions which includes league play, the Taca de Portugal and the Champions League, both qualifiers and group play.

Schmidt has matched the unbeaten run of former manager Sven-Goran Ericsson which took place during the 1981/82 season. Schmidt's unbeaten run ties him for fifth on the clubs all time list and he is eleven games shy of surpassing legendary manager Bella Guttman's thirty-one game streak which he accomplished during the 1959/60 season.


Bella Guttman  31 games (1959/60)

Jimmy Hagan 26 games (1971/72)

John Mortimore 26 games (1977/78)

Elek Schwartz 24 games (1964/65)

Sven-Goran Ericsson 21 games (1981/82) 

Roger Schmidt 21 games (2022/23)
