NB: apparently ASEC had won 11 and drawn 1 of their first 12 matches;
    and last lost a match on the final day od the 1989 season.
    In round 14, immediately after losing their invincibility record,
    ASEC trounced Man by 11-0 (8 goals by Ben Badi, a record), their
    record win and the record win in the history of the Ivorian league,
    later equalled by Africa Sports (who beat CO Korhogo 11-0 in 1999).
