gave the MofkeiSs supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 2 - 0.
MofkeiSs's M. Llimona
saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates after 22 minutes.
MofkeiSs were given a gift! The ref dubiously awarded them a penalty 23 minutes into the match, which was neatly put away by J. Kopietz

The players of MofkeiSs now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle.
The score became 4 - 0 at 27 minutes into the game, when MofkeiSs were given a penalty which J. Kopietz
blasted straight down the middle giving the keeper no chance!

was shown a yellow card after 70 minutes for slicing down an opponent.

was given a chance to change things around.
Having been awarded a free kick in an awkward position after 77 minutes, Celtic did not go for a shot but instead fired the ball hard into the 6 yard box. After a brief tussle with his marker, L. Xarpell

In the lead, MofkeiSs adjusted their style of play with 85 minutes gone.
