Benfica Women's Team Record This Season Is Utterly Ridiculous

Benfica Women produced 32 of the best as they totally destroyed their opposition at the weekend but it was nothing new for the team who top their table with a ridiculous record this season.

32-0 isn't a scoreline that you'll see in many places, not even England's Test cricketers manage to get to that score on most occasions and football teams struggle just as much with that usually.

Sure a lot of us will have been on the end of a double digit battering in a Sunday League game or perhaps against a much better school team, but professionally the margin tends to be less.

However Benfica Women are getting far too familiar with big scorelines, at least their opposition will think so, and they're getting close to their headmaster telling them off for scoring too many goals, as the headmaster in my primary school did to our school team (I definitely wasn't in the team).

At the weekend they smashed 32, that's '(Thirty two)' in vidiprinter parlance, against CP Pego in the '15th round of the 2nd Division National Series D.'

The official Twitter page for Benfica even tweeted the highlights of all of the goals, Gary Lineker and his team would have a hard time getting through all of these:

And it merely continues a season that surely has no parallel with the side banging in 257 goals in just 14 games, that's an average of over 18 a game, and conceding none:


Even Pep Guardiola's Manchester City managed to score 106 goals in the Premier League last season, that's small fry compared to the Portuguese side.

Striker Darlene Souza knocked in 10 of the 32 goals at the weekend to take her tally to 80 for the season, an amount of goals a Jose Mourinho side could only imagine scoring in total.

You've got to love the fact that second placed Sporting, who have a decent record themselves, have 'only' got a goal difference of 97.
