Valletta managed to win a dull encounter against Qormi thanks to an 82nd minute goal by Terence Scerri. It was Scerri’s second goal of the season thus putting Valletta partially on top of the standings as they have now seven points from three games so far this season.

After Birkirkara’s last night win against Hiberians the Citzens had that extra pressure to collect the three points. Formely Qormi mentor and now Valletta coach Jesmond Zerafa changed his latest tactics and opted for a 4-4-2 as opposed to that of last Friday’s game when the lilly whites drew against Hiberians with a 4-4-1-1 formation. Joseph Okowkwo and Kevin Sammut got the nod instead the injured Roderick Briffa and Dyson Falzon. Captain Gilbert Agius was also ruled out. Qormi’s Stephen Azzopardi started with a 4-5-1 formation with Serbian Kosta Byedov as their lonely striker.

In today’s first game Tarxien Rainbows won against bottom placed side Vittoriosa 1-0 thanks to a Ricardo Costa goal.
