Luxol produced a brilliant performance to take the lead in the best-of-five elite play-off series after beating rivals Valletta Futsal 6-1 in front of a sizeable crowd at the Corradino Pavilion on Friday.
 


Luxol made their intentions clear from the outset, racing into a three-goal advantage in the first half thanks to Celino Alves’s brace and Emil Andrei’s accurate shot from the second penalty spot.

 

When the second half got underway, Valletta tried to stage a reaction but Luxol held firm. They sealed their win with three more goals, Maicon Silva hitting a brace and captain Mark Zammit also putting his name on the scoresheet.

 

A minute from the end of the match, Jovica Milijic scored a consolation goal for Valletta after Camilo Gomez had missed from the second penalty spot.

 

The second play-off is scheduled to take place on Tuesday at the Corradino Sports Pavilion, starting at 20.15.
