Slobodan Janjic played his first match in the all red shirt of Balzan , scored his first goal in Maltese futsal and provided two assists in his team’s 6-3 victory over Mosta.
The 28-year-old Serbian prodigy showed his style from the very first minute of the game and will certainly prove an asset for the champions who are showing that they are coming back to business.
Balzan dominated the possession of the game but failed to capitalize in more than one occasion with Mosta operating mostly on counter-attacks.
In one of these, they surprisingly surged ahead through Diego Gomes de Mello.
Boycho Marev’s boys reacted immediately and Mosta’s keeper Karl Balzan was kept busy with some great saves.
However after Frane Despotovic levelled the matters, Balzan grew in confidence and succeeded to add two more goals from Boycho Marev and Slobodan Janjic.
After the break, Balzan continued to impose their style of play and Despotovic had the time to complete a personal brace.
Matthew Borg put Mosta back in contention but the champions had the final say as Glenn Bonello and Boycho Marev hit the target twice.
Former Balzan player, Eslam Khalifa, who was making his official debut, scored Mosta’s third goal of the game.
This win helped Balzan strengthen the third spot in the table and continue their quest to retain the title they had won last season.
