Algerian forward Baghdad Bounedjah had a remarkable second league game of the season as he scored seven goals in one match for Al Sadd.
The Qatari side won 10-1 in a very comfortable Stars League victory against Al Arabi, taking Bounedjah’s tally to ten goals scored in two games this campaign which is incredible.
Remarkably, the striker did not score his first goal until the 43rd minute. He had been linked with a move to Lille, Leeds and Fenerbahce this summer.
In the second half, the former USM El Harrach frontman scored six goals. They came in the 47th, 50th, 62nd, 64th, 74th and 89th minute of the game.
This result was the second biggest victory in Al Sadd’s history, and their biggest win since 2007. They are on maximum points so far in the league table.
Bounedjah has surely now cemented his place as Algeria’s first choice striker due to the irregular playing time of Islam Slimani. Ten goals in to games is a record for the number of goals scored in a top tier league in any country.
Al Sadd are also through to the knockout stages of the AFC Champions League, so there could be even greater prizes ahead for the 26-year-old.
