A massive win in Leg 1 for Druids Futsal, with a Champions League spot on the line.
Both teams came into this game with a 100% record in their respective leagues and wanting to keep that intact as they take a step closer to Champions League Futsal.
The game kicked off and Druids got their dream start, breaking the deadlock after just 15 seconds of play. Best played a splitting ball thought to Saunders who’s shot was saved but Doherty was there to tuck the rebound home. It didn’t take long for Cardiff to respond as Nelson was perfectly placed to level the game. As the match continued both sides showed their class, having great spells of possession and creating chances, but it was Druids who were the most clinical as they managed to find the back of the net another 3 times before half time. Goals coming from Rogers and Saunders.
Cardiff knew they had to come out fighting in the second half and that is exactly what they did. Futsal Club Cardiff got the next 2 goals bringing the score to 4-3, making it a very interesting and nail biting final 10 minutes for the Druids supporters. There were 2 more goals in quick succession to bring the game to 5-4, Druids managed to deal with the pressure to see the game out and keep their 100% win record.
A great 5-4 win for Druids who now travel to Cardiff on April 10th for the second leg.
Thank you to all the supporters who came down and cheered the team on. We hope to repay your support with another fine performance in Cardiff and a Champions League place!
Come on you Druids!!
