Jadida beat Guinea-Bissau’s Benfica 10-0 in record Champions League win
Difaa el Jadida of Morocco thrashed Benfica of Guinea-Bissau 10-0 at home on Saturday to achieve the biggest single-leg victory in African Champions League history. Moroccan Hamid Ahaddad scored five goals in the preliminary round first leg rout and Tanzanian Simon Msuva contributed three for Jadida who led 6-0 at half-time. Kabwe Warriors beat Majantja of Lesotho 9-0 in 1972 when the competition was known as the African Cup of Champions Clubs, whilst Raja Casablanca were 10-1 winners over Tourbillon of Chad in 2011 . Jadida’s feat continued the momentum in Moroccan football following Morocco’s convincing triumph in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) for home-based footballers last weekend.
