Clermont recorded their biggest ever Heineken Cup win as they ran out 82-0 winners over Aironi in Monza.
Hat-trick from Sitiveni Sivivatu and Julien Malzieu along with braces from Lee Byrne and Alexandre Lapandry and scores from Brock James and Elvis Vermeulen was enough to give the Top 14 giants a massive win.
The French side raced ahead with some early scores and were already 47-0 in front at the break. Brock James kicked seven conversions to add to four from Morgan Parra as the French side collected a bonus point ahead of next weekend's home clash with pool leaders Ulster.
