Leandro de Almeida scored twice as lowly Haladás VFC stunned leaders MTK Hungária FC with a 3-0 win.

Fine form
The home side, eleventh in the 12-team first division, found their form today following their poor season. Leandro scored the opener from the penalty spot after 38 minutes and added his second midway through the second period.

Ten points clear
In between, Leandro’s compatriot Fred connected with a Péter Halmosi cross to strike Haladás's second. The win moved Haladás ten points clear of bottom club Vasas SC while MTK remain seven points in front of second-placed Zalaegerszegi.
