5. Benfica - Overall points: 12

Benfica have been in outstanding form throughout this season - indeed they are currently unbeaten in the Liga Sagres and are four points clear of rivals Porto.

The Portuguese outfit have fallen just a little bit short of the elite level in the Champions League, but are well-placed in the Europa League with a quarter-final tie against Premier League strugglers Newcastle.

They actually scored the same amount of points as Manchester United, but rank behind their English rivals because of their inferior attacking potency. They did however score well with their defensive efforts, coming in the top three behind only Bayern Munich and Juventus.
