Brilliant Baku United retain Futsal League crown

Strikes from Johnathan Camera, Marcelo, Carlos Munoz and a brace from captain Kevin Ramirez were enough to guarantee Baku United a place in the UEFA Futsal League next season as national champions.

Baku United 5-1 Manchester

In the opening moments, Marcelo was the main source of danger but found himself regularly blocked by a solid defence led by captain Stuart Cook.

Manchester shot-stopper Marcos Magalhaes was in fine form to deny several more attempts from the goal-hungry Marcelo, Baku United's top scorer this season.

After the midway point the game picked up pace as the first goal of the match was scored by Kevin Ramirez. 

Their joy was short-lived as Manchester bounced back in emphatic fashion. 

The lively attacker seemed to mis-control the ball as it came to him but managed to improvise a shot while lying on the ground to finally get the Northern Division champions back on level terms.

Ramirez collected a pass far outside the area, there seemed to be no threat of an imminent attack, but the 26-year-old took his shot and it slid under the body of Magalhaes and into the net. 

The third and fourth goals came in the space of three minutes. 

Camera then turned provider when his free-kick was played to Marcelo who buried his shot in the Manchester net.

Despite the game ending 5-1, the match was not as one-sided as the scoreline suggested. Manchester played courageously throughout but Baku proved to be too strong in the end, the club's second consecutive title being testament to their dominance of English Futsal.

Goals: Ramirez 24, 25, Camera 26, Marcelo 28, Munoz 36

Goal: King 24.

Referee: Billy Taylor
