The 5th round A league game was sealed by Elivelto – Brazilian international showed his scoring abilities on 57 and 65 minutes. 25-year old striker has scored four goals yet.
Jonava suffered its first loss, but still is a top-scoring team in A league. The only goal on 90+4 minutes was scored by Georgian international David Makaradze.
“It was a very tough game, because Jonava was really prepared. We know how to play ten against eleven – in Turkey we talked over about these situations and were prepared for that,” summarized head coach Valdas Dambrauskas.
