Floriana were beaten by Tarxien Rainbows thanks to two superb goals by Sergio Pacheco in each half. Noel Coleiro was unable to start with the injured Everton Perreira and goalkeeper David Cassar was preferred to Anthony Curmi. Todor Raykov on the another hand Floriana opted for last Saturday winner Michael Meceerod instead of Mark Gauci and welcomed back Kiril Dzohorov after he was out for the last two games due to injury.
