Benfica had some problems in the early 1980s, but managed to regain its standing as the best team in Portugal within this decade, this time under the guidance of Sven-Göran Eriksson. In two years, 1983 and 84, the club won the Portuguese championship, one Portuguese Cup, and reached the final of the UEFA Cup in 1983 against Anderlecht.
In 1987, Benfica won another domestic double, an achievement done for the ninth time in its history, and reached European Cup finals in 1988 and 90.
Following the completion of improvements to the stadium, the board of Benfica decided to open the third level of the Estádio da Luz, which transformed it into the biggest football stadium in Europe, with a capacity of 120,000 spectators.
