Nyasa Big Bullets are out of the FISD Challenge Cup, after suffering a humiliating 5-4 loss to Moyale Barracks in post match penalties.

Bullets failed to get through the soldiers at Civo Stadium on Sunday in Lilongwe.

The two teams were tied to a two-all draw at the end of 90 minutes of the match.

This forced the game to go into the dreaded penalty shoot-outs.

Moyale converted all five penalties but Bullets’ penalty expert Nelson “Silencer” Kangunje turned killed the team’s hopes when his last kick was saved by Moyale goalkeeper Juma Chikwenga.

This means the FISD final will be a soldiers’ affairs between the Lilongwe based Kamuzu Barracks and Mzuzu based Moyale Barracks.

Kamuzu Barracks thrashed Masters Security on Saturday in a soldier versus security guard affair, which also ended in a penalty shoot-out following a two-all draw at the same venue.

This year’s winner will walk away with a trophy and MK15 million in prize money.

Benevento broke Manchester United's record for the worst start to a season in the top five European leagues after losing in added time to Sassuolo.

The Serie A debutants have lost all 13 games - breaking United's 12 at the start of the 1930-31 season.

Alessandro Matri swept Sassuolo into the lead, but Samuel Armenteros equalised before Gaetano Letizia was sent off for the visitors.

Domenico Berardi missed a Sassuolo penalty before Federico Peluso won it.

Benevento, who won back-to-back promotions to reach Serie A, thought they were going to get their first point of the season when Berardi's injury-time penalty hit the bar, but Peluso's 94th-minute header consigned them to yet another defeat.

United were relegated from the First Division in 1930-31, winning only seven of 42 games after losing their opening 12.

Mazembe restored their advantage 19 minutes later through Ghanaian midfielder Daniel Nii Adjei to make it 2-1 to the home side.

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been dropped for disciplinary reasons.

The 28-year-old will not be considered for his club's next Bundesliga fixture against VfB Stuttgart on Friday.

Dortmund announced the suspension in response to a supporter's question on Twitter,  but did not elaborate on the reasons behind it.

The Gabon international was also suspended by his club last year for an unsanctioned trip to Italy.

It comes after Dortmund have lost three of their past four league games to drop to third place in the Bundesliga, six points off leaders Bayern Munich.

They host Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Aubameyang, who was linked with summer moves to Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris St-Germain, was absent from a video tweeted by the club showing the squad as they arrived at the airport to fly to Stuttgart.

He started this season by scoring 15 goals in his first 12 matches, including two Bundesliga hat-tricks.

But he has since gone 476 minutes without scoring.
