Mazembe make history; Simba mauled

DR Congo's TP Mazembe got their name in the record books by claiming the biggest win in the CAF Champions League history following their 8-0 win over Club Africain on Saturday.

ASEC Mimosas previously held the record following their 2011 emphatic 7-0 win over Belouizdad but Mazembe heroics on Saturday saw them rewrite the historu books.

Having been left with two other teams in Group C following the ousting of Ismailly, Mazembe couldn't afford to make errors with the team going into the break with a 4-0 lead; goals that were scored by Kevin Mondeko (brace), Mika Miche and Jackson Muleka.

Muleka was to bag his brace minutes after the hour mark with Tresor Mobutu also scoring a double; the other goal being patched by Meshack Elia.

Simba Mauled

In other matches on Saturday, Tanzania Simba SC found the going tough in Egypt when they fell 5-0 to Al Ahly in a Group D affair. In the same group, Vita Club who had thumped Simba on match day one were held to a 2-2 draw by Saoura.

In Group B, defending champions ES Tunis were held to a goalless draw by South African side Orlando Pirates with Horoya claiming a 1-0 win over Platinum.

Gor Mahia tormentors in the competition Lobi Stars lost at home to Wydad Casablanca of Morocco by a solitary goal.
