Meistriliiga week 33 - Flora not there yet

Goals from Saturday 15th October

As Estonia came back down to earth following the national side’s qualification for the Euro 2012 play offs, the Meistriliiga continued with matches on Saturday and Tuesday and with the title race not quite yet decided.

Flora’s 11-0 demolition of FC Ajax on Saturday (Flora have scored 33 goals against the bottom of the league side this season) was coupled with a slightly disappointing goalless draw against Tammeka in Tartu on Tuesday. Kalju’s double of 3-0 wins against Sillamäe and Viljandi means they gain some ground and Flora, but Martin Reim’s side remain favourites with four games to play and a game in hand over Kalju. Flora’s trickiest remaining fixture will be welcoming Trans to the A.Le Coq Arena on 29th October.

Trans themselves are not out of the title race after a very late winner from Aleksandrs Cekulajevs gave them the points at Paide. A win for Trans over Flora would make things interesting going into the final week.

Kuressaare’s recent good form continued with their third win in four games at home to Viljandi – Märten Pajunurm scoring a brace for the islanders. Paide also picked up a very good win against Levadia at Maarjamäe, Mait Nõmme scoring a first half winner for Paide.

Tammeka 0-0 Flora
