Our 'Best XI' competition gets going!
All the top players of the Premium Liiga are now sprinting to become the best players of season 2014.
The selection of the 'Best XI' from each matchday is now sponsored by Optibet, Sports & Casino .
Let's discover which was the 'Optibet Best XI' for matchday 28 as chose by 'Rumori'
We will also take a look at the general standings*** (top5 for each role).
Goalkeepers - Teleś vs. Śmiśko
Last year he was the best of the season (Śmiśko) and he said the other would have deserved the national team. Teleś might not get the call (there are too many goalkeepers ahead of him) however his hard work has brought him to keep the rivalry with the Ukrainian giant. For this matchday, Vitali goes in 'Optibet Best XI' thanks to the penalty he saved against Oleg Valov when Kalju was winning 3-1 and the goal could have galvanized the opposition. Śmiśko is the only shot stopper of the matchday to keep the clean sheet
Defenders - Kalju über alles
The goal came from a (dubious) penalty, but the couple Rodrigues (experience) and Pürg (youth) worked well if it was never seen during the season. Pürg was already employed as right full-back by Prins, however he is a central defender. He also managed to score his first Premium Liiga goal with a header. Left full-back is Levadia's Artur Pikk, thanks to his inspiring opener in Paide on Saturday and on the other side, Jan Penic who came off the bench and served an assist to Subbotin. Cheminava substitute.
Midfielders - a lot of variety
Five midfielders for our 4-2-3-1 (the most exploited formation in Premium Liiga) and each of them from a different team. Frolov and Eino Puri in front of the defence, Jakovlev behind the striker and Valov and Subbotin on each of the two flanks. Substitute Alliku and Beglarishvili, the latter scored a brace on his 100th game in Premium Liiga.
Strikers - King Kabaev
Who else? Ok, the opposition is not irresistible (Kalev have suffered 114 goals this season) but Evgeni keeps his scoring form and reaches 29 nettings in 28 games! Neemelo as a substitute having allowed Kalju to go to the break on two-one-up lead.
*** 1 point for a place in the XI and 0,5 points for a substitute place
