Football: FA Trophy Final Preview

Friday, May 19, 2017, 15:28

After a Premier League season that has rewarded the Hibernians as Champions with several points more than their followers, Balzan, Birkirkara and La Valetta, the time has come to see which team will take the FA Trophy back home. Floriana and the Sliema Wanderers, respectively 5th and 6th in the Premier League, will compete to obtain a trophy to give an happy ending to their season.

This opposition is interesting because despite their closeness in the Premier League ranking (only two points), they recent form is quite different.

In fact Sliema is in a great form without defeat since the 4th March after a difficult beginning of the season.

On the other hand, Floriana has obtained good results too but with less continuity. Another interesting statistic fact is that the head-to-head confrontations of this season always turned in favor of the Wanderers (3-1, 1-3 and 3-0).

The moral advantage seem to be on the Wanderers’ side but FA Trophy can also be an opportunity of revenge for Floriana because we all know that cup games are often more unpredictable than the league ones.
