The VFF National Super League started on this Thursday in Vanuatu as two matches were contested at Soccer City Stadium in Luganville – the second largest city in the country. Eight teams are fighting for the national title while the top two teams qualify for 2021 OFC Champions League.
The eight teams are split in two groups, but in a not very conventional way: five teams are in Group A while Group B will have three teams. The matches played this Thursday are from Group A. Current national champions Malampa Revivors from Luganville faced RueRue from Penama in the opening match of the tournament.
Edwin Bai opened the scoreboard for Malampa Revivors in the beginning of the second half while Melkyzedeck Gasi equalized. However, RueRue did not have much time to celebrate as youngster Armando Ravo scored to put Revivors ahead again.
Melkyzedeck was on fire and he scored his first goal in the game to tie the match in the 79th minute. Revivors’ midfielder Jean-Claude Batick still had time to score the winning goal in the stoppage time. At the final whistle, the title holders defeated RueRue by 3-2.
The second game of the day was a breathtaking clash between Police from Malampa and Patuvuti from Sanma. In a very interesting match, Police have beaten their opponents by 4-3. You can check more details about 2020 VFF National Super League by clicking here.
