Bali turns heat on futsal scorers

Wilde is the leading UEFA Futsal Cup scorer among the final four but the ElPozo Murcia player is six goals adrift of Futsal Topsport Antwerpen's Karim Bali.
Wilde is the leading UEFA Futsal Cup scorer this season from among the final four but the ElPozo Murcia player is six goals adrift of Futsal Topsport Antwerpen's Karim Bali.

Bali feat
Murcia, MFK Dinamo Moskva, MFK Viz-Sinara Ekaterinburg and Kairat Almaty were all seeded to the Elite round, meaning they have only played three games in the competition this season compared to six for the likes of Antwerpen, who entered in the Main round before progressing to the penultimate stage. And it was in the Main round that 22-year-old Belgian Bali claimed ten of his goals, including six in a 9-1 defeat of Athina '90 Athens.

Wilde bid
Ricardinho is second in the rankings, one of three SL Benfica players in the current top six. Wilde is joint seventh, thanks to his hat-trick against KMF Marbo Beograd and two goals apiece versus HMNK Gospić and Clearex Chorzów as Murcia stormed through the Elite round. The only other player to strike five times for one of the final four is Dinamo's Kelson, while even if Wilde does overhaul Bali he would need six more goals to equal the all-time season record of 19, set by Kelson's former Action 21 Charleroi team-mate Andre in 2003/04.
