Benfica secure biggest Primeira Liga win in 55 years 

Benfica thrashed Nacional 10-0 on Sunday as they secured the biggest win in the Primeira Liga for 55 years.
It was the first time that Benfica have reached double figures since 1964, when they also won 10-0 against Seixal, and on this occasion they opened the scoring through Alex Grimaldo in the first minute.
Bruno Lage's team added a second in the 21st minute as Haris Seferovic got on the scoresheet, and the attacker added a second shortly afterwards.
The majority of Benfica's goals came in the second half, with Pizzi teeing up Joao Felix to make it 4-0.
Pizzi then scored Benfica's fifth goal himself from the penalty spot, with Francisco Ferreira proceeding to add a sixth.
