The two teams that came to compete each other gave us perhaps the best game of the season.
Esports Technologies, with a few new players, finally looked like the team that won the PAI Cup last season, while Tipico, standardly good, continued to keep pace with Aspire Global for leading position in League 1.
The match started with a quick goal by Nuno Carvalhoto, already in the fourth minute of the match. Very quickly Tipico reaches the equalizer and a complete turnaround, through Alexander Shchepetkin and Jonathan Agius.
It was 4:3 for Tipico at half time. In second half, a real first league match.
In the middle of the second half, Tipico went to +3 but Ramiro and Rudi Alhinho managed to bring Esports back into the game.
With his second goal, seven minutes before the end of the match, Nuno Carvalhoto introduces the game into an uncertain ending and, it will be established later, makes the final score 7:6. Esports Technologies did not have enough strength in the end of the match to equalize.
With only one substitution, they opposed a team that has eight equal players who can always jump off the bench and give their contribution. At the same time, the players of Tipico are substituting on every two minutes and, thus, maintain to control the strong tempo of the game throughout the whole match.
Truly an exceptional half-season for Tipico, while on the other hand, it remains unfortunate that the company of the best leaves Esports Technology because everyone wants more games at this level in the PAI League.
