It was an overwhelming display of top class football from FC Mavlon and it was not a surprise when the rain of goals began 15 minutes from time. Josiah Ochonu intercepted a pass from the central defender of FC Pirin-Razlog and the attacker hit a low drive into the net.

Mavlon attackers continued to pile pressure on the defence, as the strike duo of Kelechi Onwugamba and Charles Agada threatened again to increase the goal tally.
