Uganda Cranes left back Joseph Ochaya featured impressively as TP Mazembe beat Club Africain 8-0 on Saturday in Lubumbashi for a record biggest win in the Caf Champions league group stages.

The former KCCA and Asante Kotoko defender defended resolutely and saw his free kick result into one of the goals for the five time African champions.

TP Mazembe scored through brace heroes Kevin Mondeko, Jackson Muleka and Tresor Mputu coupled with strikes from Miche Mika and Meschak Elia to boost their chances for a place at the knockout stage. 

With group C reduced to three teams after the disqualification of Ismaily of Egypt following indiscipline against Club Africain two weeks ago in Ismailia; Mazembe had no chance than to win to stay in contention. And they did it in grand style.

They broke a record set by Ivorian side ASEC Mimosas who won 7-0 against Algeria’s CR Belouizdad in 2001.

The win gives Mazembe three points from two games, three shy of leaders Constantine of Algeria. Africain sit at the bottom pointless.
