Benfica romp to 10-0 win in Portugal


Lisbon (AFP) – Benfica routed Nacional Madeira 10-0 in the Portuguese first division on Sunday to move just one point behind leaders Porto.

Watched by 55,000 fans inside the Stadium of Light, Alex Grimaldo opened the scoring in the first minute but it was another 20 minutes before Haris Seferovic scored the first of his two goals.

Swiss international Seferovic’s second arrived in the 27th minute as Benfica went into the break with a 3-0 advantage.

The floodgates opened in the second half with Joao Felix, a Pizzi penalty, Ferro, Ruben Dias, Jonas with a brace and Rafa Silva all on the scoresheet.

Sunday’s rout came just three weeks after French champions PSG put nine goals past Guingamp in Ligue 1.
