Benfica demolish Nacional 10-0 in biggest Primeira Liga win for 55 years


Benfica delivered the biggest margin of victory in the Primeira Liga for 55 years thanks to a sensational 10-0 hammering of Nacional on Sunday.

Bruno Lage’s side went into the game on the back of a five-match winning streak in the league and a goal in the opening minute from Alejandro Grimaldo set the tone for the visitors’ torrid outing at Estadio da Luz.

Haris Seferovic scored a brace to make it 3-0 at half-time, Joao Felix added a fourth, Pizzi converted a penalty and there were further strikes from Ferro and Ruben Dias to make it 7-0 in the 64th minute.

Lage sent on Jonas and he netted goals either side of one from Rafa to complete the rout, the scoreline matching Benfica’s win over Seixal in 1964 – the last time any Primeira Liga team won by a 10-goal margin.
