CSKA achieved a well-deserved success over Heber with 3:0 in a match of the 16th round of the efbet league. Matias Phaeton, Michael Estrada and Stanislav Shopov scored the goals for the “reds”, who with this success climb to the top with 35 points. The visitors from Pazardzhik are in ninth position with 19 points.
Surprisingly for many, the visitors created the first dangerous situation of the match. Atanas Kabov broke away on the right flank, then crossed for Marcel Canady, but his shot went high over Gustavo Busato’s goal.
Despite Heber’s strong start, a blunder in the team’s ranks almost resulted in a goal for CSKA. The ball was returned unmeasured, forward Michael Estrada raced past Heber’s defense to shoot, but an opposing defender blocked his shot. However, the ball fell to Jonathan Lindseth, who shot straight at guard Matvei Igonen.
The cleanest situation since the beginning of the meeting was for the composition of Nestor El Maestro. In the 12th minute, Michael Estrada easily overtook the central defenders of the team from Pazardzhik again, set up the ball by sending a weak shot, which was saved by the goalkeeper Matvei Igonen.
The pressure of the “armies” continued and in the 30th minute they were deprived of a goal. Tobias Heinz then crossed from a foul into Heber’s penalty area, where Brian Córdoba got in cleverly, sending a shot that rattled the Estonian keeper’s side post.
Michael Estrada was definitely the main culprit for CSKA not leading by more at halftime. In the 39th minute, with a cross from the left in Heber’s penalty area, the Ecuadorian directed the ball straight at Matvei Igonen from close range.
In view of the total dominance, the “reds” quite naturally found the result seconds before the end of the first part. The central defender Hristiyan Petrov combined with Ivan Turitsov, the right wing defender with a sharp pass found Matias Phaeton, whose execution flew into the goal for 1:0.
In the second half, forward Michael Estrada made up for his previous misses. In the 62nd minute, the offensive player controlled a pass in the opposing team from Emmanuel Shakic, turned and elegantly tied the lead for the “reds”.
In the 72nd minute, the hosts had a great chance to score a third goal. Star Tobias Heinz received a pass from Phaeton, the Norwegian shot, prompting Matvei Igonen’s intervention.
Seconds before the end of regular time, the “armies” made their success classic after a masterpiece goal by Stanislav Shopov. The youth national with a cannonball shot from a serious distance stretched the net of Matvei Igonen.
