Even without star Cristiano Ronaldo , who is suspended due to a third yellow card , Portugal showed no mercy and scored a historic 9-0 defeat in Luxembourg .

The match, valid for the 6th round of qualifying for the European Championship , was held at the Algarve stadium, in Portugal, this Monday (12).

With the victory, the Portuguese team, which has not yet conceded a goal, maintained the lead in group J with 100% success, with 18 points.

Luxembourg's coach, Luc Holtz, left the field after seeing the team concede the eighth Portuguese goal.

He has been in office for 13 years, but was extremely angry with the result.

A few minutes later, the coach returned to the field and saw his team score the ninth goal.
