Albania round-up: Late goal spares Dinamo's blushes

A late goal moved KS Dinamo Tirana three points clear at the top on Saturday.

Paulin Dhembi's late goal moved KS Dinamo Tirana three points clear at the top of the Liga e Pare table on Saturday.

Dhembi seals it
Dhembi struck on 86 minutes to clinch a 2-1 victory for his side at rock-bottom KS Luftëtari. The home side had levelled the scores eight minutes earlier through Arben Çoni after Klodian Asllani had given Dinamo a first-half lead.

Tirana held
Dinamo moved clear of second-placed SK Tirana, who were held to a goalless draw by KS Bylis. Meanwhile, there was a Brazilian feel to KS Partizani's 3-0 win over KS Flamurtari. Brazilian midfield player Abilio opened the scoring in the first half while his compatriot Karioka helped himself to a double after the break.

Begeja the hero
Elsewhere, Gentian Begeja scored the only goal of the game as KS Teuta overcame KS Shkumbini 1-0, KS Tomori beat KS Erzeni 3-1, KS Vllaznia lost 2-1 at KF Lushnja and the game between KS Apolonia and KS Besëlidhja ended 1-1.
