FC Levadia Tallinn ended FC Flora's two-year hold on the Estonian Cup with a 3-0 win against the latter in the final.
Flora failed to take advantage of their early superiority, Oliver Konsa and Karl Palatu both spurned presentable chances, and were punished on 33 minutes when Andero Pebre reacted quickest to tap in a rebound. Levadia – victors over Flora in the Super Cup earlier in the campaign – doubled their lead on the hour through Vitali Leitan, who finished off neat build-up play by Pebre and Artjom Dmitrijev. Provider then turned scorer 18 minutes from time as Dmitrijev beat Flora goalkeeper Stanislav Pedõk.
"We just wanted to play confidently," said Levadia coach Igor Prins, whose team trails Flora on goal difference after 11 games of the Meistriliiga season. "It was very important to be calm in defence so we started quite carefully. Our key striker, Tarmo Neemelo, has a cold, yet his replacements played very well. Flora are in good shape but we weren't afraid. However, the score probably shouldn't have been that big."
