Full Time:

Birkirkara 3

Floriana 0

Floriana were down on their knees on Saturday night as they were heavily defeated by Paul Zammit’s side Birkirkara. A 3-0 victory seemed and easy task for the Stripes but it was only thanks to their Brazilian Jhonnattann that Bkara made it look so easy. The Brazil born player scored a hat trick thus registering his poker of goals in the Malta Premier League.

Floriana were without Mark Wright for this game as he is on family duties back in the UK. The Greens were under the guidance of Alan Lewer who did not perform really well like the majority of his players. Lewer decided to leave Pisani, Alhino and Farrugia on the bench.
