In a game where Azzopardi opted for a 3-4-3 formation, Vittoriosa startedvery well the game and managed to open the score thanks to Anthony Ewurum following a fine cross by Jorge Silva dos Santos. The Yellow-Blacks managed to level the score by a George Mallia header from a Joseph Farrugia free kick. On the 37th minute mark Qormi’s captain Joseph Farrugia scored a well taken free kick which gave Simon Agius no chance. One minute into added time George Mallia scored his second personal goal and the third for Azzopardi’s side when he headed a Cleaven Frendo’s corner.

    Jien ovvjament furjaniz, kuntent bir-rizultat u wisq aktar bil-performance taghna, hbieb fil-pitch ma hadd ghax kullhadd jilghab ghal-kuluri tieghu pero naqbel li djorov seta evita dak li ghamel… Fuq il-penalty ta lattes jista jkun il-kaz li inghata wkoll pero about time li ahna wkoll niehdu ghal darba favur arbitrali ghax ilna snin shah naqalaw mir-referees! Fuq il-loba ftit nistghu nghidu, kellna nigu 4 jew 5 mill-inqas! WELL DONE GREENS!

    @pullu. Ghalhekk trid tinvesti fil-bankina wiesa, bhal ma ghamlu l-Valletta. Ma tistax tkun Champions u kif ikollok is-sospensjonijiet toqghod teqred li tlift ghax kellek l-ahjar elementi neqsin. Sfortunatament naqra hafna hmerijiet ta’ min imaqdar lill-Victor Scriha ghax jixtri l-ahjar plejers fis-suq. Nahseb li nies bhal Scriha qed jaghmlu gid kbir lil-futbol Malti ghax qed jinholoq certu antagonizmu kontra Valletta minhabba li fil-mument it-tijm li kulhadd jixtieq jirbah (a propositu harrsu kemm kienu sodisfatti fi tmiem il-loghba l-plejers tal-Hibs ghax zammew lill-Belt 2-2 nhar il-Gimgha) u jolq interess f’lijg li sa 3-4 snin ilu kien qed imut mewta naturali.

    Jalla jkun hemm aktar presidenti bhal Scriha li jinvestu u jarmaw it-timijiet taghhom halli nkomplu nitilaw bi hgarna f’Ta` Qali.
