KS Dinamo Tirana hung on to top spot in the Albanian first division on Saturday after fighting back from two goals down to win 3-2 against KS Tomori.

Thrilling fightback

Third-placed KS Partizani thrashed KS Erzeni 5-0 with all the goals coming from their Brazilian contingent. Abilio scored twice, while his compatriots Marcelinjo, Karioka and Rosha added the others.

Upset for Teuta
KS Luftëtari upset KS Teuta with a 1-0 win, while KS Shkumbini beat KS Bylis by the same scoreline. KS Apolonia overcame KS Flamurtari 2-0 with two goals either side of half-time. In the day's other game Besëlidhja drew 0-0 with KS Vllaznia.
