Bounedjah breaks record as Al Sadd  thrash Al Shahania 4-1

DOHA, Qatar: Algerian international Baghdad Bounedjah, who plies his trade with Qatar’s Al Sadd, broke the record for the most goals for a season as his side defeated Al Shahania 4-1 in the QNB stars League on Friday.

Bounedjah scored his 27th and 28th goals while Hassan Al Haidous also netted a brace as Sadd stormed to another easy victory to place themselves hot on the heels of leaders Al Duhail, who were earlier held 1-1 by Qatar SC.

Bounedjah’s continuing goal blitz helped him eclipse Brazilian Clemerson’s tally of 27 goals for Al Gharafa in 2007-08 season.

Sadd, who last won the title in 2012-13 season, are now on 35 points, just one behind Duhail, and have a massive goal difference of 49 to the leaders’ 26. Sadd will take on Duhail on December 11.
