MFPA and Gżira United face each other in top of the table clash

MFPA and Gżira United kick-off their championship pool commitments as they cross swords in the top of the table clash.

MFPA are first in the table with 29 points with the Maroons lying one point behind them. The Malta Football Players Association started badly their league commitments but they have recovered well clinching some important points that propelled them to the top position and thus securing a championship pool spot.

The Maroons had a positive first part of the season and it was only at the end of the second round that they lost some points on the way. Despite all this, they managed to recover in time before this encounter.

It will not be a decisive encounter as both teams will still meet each other in another round of matches but the result will give some indication of their fate.

Birkirkara St Helen’s are still in contention for the league as they are three points away from MFPA. They will be interested spectators of the first match between MFPA and Gżira hoping that both teams finish in a draw and eventually they win their encounter against Hibernians.

The Paolites will be a tough opponents to the Stripes as they gave a good account of themselves in their first participation in the VMFA Cisk Premier League. They managed to book a championship pool spot after winning against Luxol. They have 19 points from 13 matches and their main aim is to get more prestigious positions in the table.

Birkirkara St Helen’s had their ups and downs during this season but they are adamant to show their character and take maximum points in their match against Hibernians.
