Second leg of the FIZ Champions League underway at RS stadium under beautiful evening sun.
RS captain SB sit out the game after sustaining muscle injury at the saturday training game. Coach Mr.xXx started the game with their usual formation 451, Edmund is the man replace SB in the middle of the park.
RS start the game brightly, try to kill off the tie with an early goal. Unsurprisingly RS managed to create a goal at the 15 mins with a touch of lucky charm, RS passing the ball at the left wing & circulate the ball back to middle of the park. Ed try to make a short pass to Kam, who missed the pass, fortunately Arkib FC defender also missed the pass, the ball rolled to Rooy who is in the offside position, saw the run of Kelvin from the left wing, cleverly let the ball roll to Kelvin who score with his right at the near post. Arkib's keeper gonna mad at himself for letting the goal passed his near post.
Lead by aggregate of 3-0, expected RS to control the game with ease. Lacked of concentration from RS players, playing so sloppy with the bad passes & slow running, not creating anything after the first goal. Arkib is playing strongly try to get a goal back before half time, luckily for RS, backline lead by Adrian, follow by Patrick jnr, James & Johnson & keeper Ad stands strongly, Arkib don't stand a chance. Especially James, who continue his excellent display from first leg, running non stop, showing great touch & positioning no matter attacking or defendng, nth get passed him.
RS coach Mr.xXx makes a tactical change during half time, send on newly recruited Taka to add steel in the midfield & Wai Loon to support Rooy in the attack.
Within 5 mins of second half, Arkib clear a crossing from the right of RS, Kelvin collected the loose ball, pass the ball to Rooy at outside of the box, he dribble past 2 Arkib defenders with ease, defenders had no choice but to bring him down, Ref point to the penalty spot immediately, no VAR require for this decision.
Wai Loon step up to take the penalty though Mr.xXx not convince to let him take it, Wai Loon slapped Mr.xXx face by slotting the penalty into right corner out of keeper's reach.
Arkib starting to crumble at this point. Wai Loon won a free kick, Adrian stepped up to take the free kick, send the free kick in with pace to the far post, Taka running from outside of the box, hang in the air long enough that Cristiano Ronaldo would admired, direct the ball to the goal, keeper tried his best to save the ball, but at no avail. Taka score his first goal for the club & RS leading 3-0 at the game.
As Arkib is desperate to score a goal, the game is open up & leave so much space for RS striker to attack. A loose ball at midfield found Rooy on the space, who accelerate towards goal, he send the keeper eating the grass with fancy footwork & slot the ball into an empty goal. Rooy's sponsor finally crack of smile as he score with the new boot.
Even Lau is enjoying so much space on the field, he collected a pass at the tip of the box, with Arkib players still catching breath & slow coming back to defend after an attacking breakdown, Lau have all the time in the world to do his usual measuring from boots to ball to strike towards the goal, keeper make a flying save & tip the ball onto the post & reflected back to the play, James run in fast like a cat & tap the ball into the empty goal. Lau is running around to claim the assist, Opta stats reluctantly gave the assist to him as a gift with CNY is around the corner.
Special mentioned to James & Rooy, both scored in back to back games.
Ref finally blow the final whistle, RS make it to the next round with an aggregate of 7-0. Coach Mr.xXx give every players a hug & wish them Kong Xi Fatt Chai & see them in 2 weeks time.
