Zach Muscat has earned his second straight promotion to the Portuguese top-flight after his club SC Farense were confirmed as the second team to move into the first-tier, on Sunday afternoon.
Muscat’s side defeated Benfica B with a 98th-minute goal winner on Saturday, cementing the second place and forcing Estrela Amadora, sitting third and trailing them by six, to beat Nacional on home soil.
However, Estrela failed to defeat Nacional as they were undone with a second-half goal to stay six points behind Farense with just one game left.
Muscat, who has 57 international caps for Malta, joined Farense from Casa Pia with whom he had also won promotion to the first-tier last season.
At Farense, Muscat played 24 games in all competitions while finding the net on four occasions including three times in the league – vs Moreirense (3-1), vs Oliveirense (2-1) and Feirense (2-1).
Farense return to the top-flight after dropping into the second-tier in the 2021/2022 season. They wrap up this season’s campaign with a home game against Tondela, next season.
