They are considered to be one of Portugal's 'Big 3' teams along with Porto and Sporting CP. With over 80 trophies, they are one of Portugal's biggest clubs, winning their first Primeira Liga title in 1936 and their first Taca de Portugal in 1940. They also won two European Cups, in 1961 and 1962, and went on a 48-game unbeaten run between 1963 and 1965.
