Meistriliiga week 12: Tallinna Kalev continue impressive form

Tallinna Kalev 1-0 Tammeka

Tallinna Kalev grabbed a last gasp winner at home to Tammeka on Saturday to seal a 1-0 win as they continue to embed themselves safely in mid-table. The goal was controversial as Kalev's Rejal Alijev looked to go down very easily after a slight touch in the box in the 93rd minute - referee Eiko Saar pointed to the spot. Hiroyuki Mitsuyama kept his cool to convert the penalty and put Kalev level on points with Sillamäe in fourth place. 

Remaining week 12 goals

Kalju, Flora and Levadia all won comfortably to stay level on 28 points each at the top of the Meistriliiga table. Kalju made short work of Sillamäe as they were 3-0 up within 20 minutes, goals from Hidetoshi Wakui, Tanel Melts and Tarmo Neemelo. Sillamäe contributed to their own downfall through poor defending and giving the ball away - Neemelo scored his second on 55 minutes and Kristen Viikmäe wrapped up the rout on 77 minutes. Flora's 5-0 win at Paide was a harsh scoreline for the home side. With the game 0-0 at half time, Valeri Minkenen put Flora 1-0 just after half time with a well placed free kick and it remained 1-0 until the 85th minute. Then, a Zakaria Beglarišvili hat trick and a goal from Karl Mööl made the win more emphatic as Paide ran out of steam. Two goals, both from corners, from Rimo Hunt gave Levadia a straightforward win at Kuressaare.

Trans continued their resurgence with a 1-0 win at Viljandi, Sergei Leontovitš scoring the winner from six yards just after the hour. Already booked, Leontovitš then received a straight red card for barging a Viljandi defender to the ground following a heavy tackle. Bit silly. 

This Saturday sees Kalju travel to Trans, Flora host Tallinna Kalev and Levadia face Viljandi at Maarjamäe.
