Zach Muscat’s Casa Pia secured a 2-0 victory over Academica Coimbra which has propelled them into second place in the Portuguese’s second-tier (Segunda Liga), on Saturday.
The Malta international defender was deployed from the start and played all 90 minutes in a three-man backline.
This was Casa Pia’s sixth victory in 11 games as they now sit second on 21 points, behind leaders Benfica B.
Casa Pia’s commitments will come to a halt for now due to the international window which will see Muscat in action with Malta in the remaining 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Croatia and Slovakia.
Muscat’s club will return to action on November 19, when they will host fellow Segunda Liga side SC Farense in the fourth round of the Portuguese cup.
