On 23 February 2013, it was confirmed that Đuričić, along with fellow national team player Miralem Sulejmani, had passed medical tests and committed to a five-year contract with Benfica from summer 2013; with the Portuguese club spending €6 million to secure his services. A week later, Benfica revealed that the contract which Đuričić had signed contained a release clause which valued him at €40 million. Đuričić made his debut for Benfica on 18 August 2013, where he scored his first goal against Anderlecht in the UEFA Champions League.
