Futsal Cup Semifinals: another miracle for Citco
Futsal cup SEMIFINALS
Amazon-ECA 4-2 Citco-PWC 8-4
What an incredible season for Citco! Citco is in third division, solidly at second place behind La Luciole. But incredibly in this Futsal CUP Citco managed to win over teams on higher divisions: back in october a great 5-1 against ARHS, followed by another similar result against Goodyear (5-2) both teams playing in Europa Group. In the quarterfinals another victory, this time against some monsters: BDO, who is solidly the second team amongst 40 this season; not satisfied, CITCO yesterday did another miracle in the semifinals vs. PWC. PWC opens with a goal by Dashnyam, but Citco finds Riccardo Carbone on fire: 4 goals by him in nine minutes! Torres makes a fifth one before halftime, 5-2 for Citco. Strazzella tries to save PWC (5-3), but again Carbone and Byavu makes clear the intentions of Citco. There is time for Gomes and Bouchama to enter the scorers list, 8-4 for Citco at the final whistle.
The other semifinal puts Amazon vs. ECA; Seattle's team has a very limited rooster tonight, without Modolo, Novas Mallo, Panarese, Vandergught, Abela, Meggiorini and Fantin. ECA on the other side has a lineup with Costa, Sanchez Rivero, Fiser, Parente, Machowski, Hristov, and Czymura. Just two minutes and a brilliant goal by Butorac brings some hopes for Amazon, who finds some way to avoid ECA's comeback: 1-0 at halftime. After 30' of gameplay, Butorac finds another great goal, but few seconds and ECA scores with captain Costa; 2-1 Amazon, that becomes immediately a 3-1 thanks to Tkachenko. Machowski gives some hopes for ECA by scoring 3-2, but few seconds later captain Carlos Lopez puts the final word: 4-2 for Amazon who flies for the final.
Would Citco make another miracle?
