Meistriliiga round 5 - Kalju signal intent

Nõmme Kalju laid down a marker for their season with a 3-1 win over Levadia at Maarjamäe. Kalju are hoping to challenge with Flora and Levadia this season following and showed their quality this win. Finnish striker Kaarlo Rantanen put Kalju ahead before half time with Tarmo Neemelo adding a second in the 66th minute. Levadia pulled one back as Lithuanian Valerijus Mižigurskis scored his first goal for the club, but Juri Jevdokimov made the points safe for Kalju with ten minutes remaining. It was Levadia captain Konstantin Nahk's 400th Meistriliiga appearance but not a result he'll want to remember.
