Floriana FC 0 vs 0 Hibernians FC
Floriana and Hibernians share a point each in a drab encounter at the Hibernians Stadium.
Hibernians started well when off a Marcelo Dias free kick, Varea’s effort was parried away by Justin Haber. Floriana’s reply was immediate when Maurizio Vella’s effort skimmed past the Hibernians goal. Nicolas Hernan Chiesa tried his luck with a cross shot with the Hibernians goalkeeper paring away the shot. Amadou Samb tried his luck with a shot from inside the area but he saw his shot saved by Hogg.
On the 31st minute , Amadou Samb headed towards goal following a Nicolas Hernan Chiesa corner, with the Hibernians goalkeeper making a good save on the Senegalese striker. On the 49th minute Hibernians had a goal disallowed scored by Jurgen Degabriele.
Amadou Samb yet again had another header saved by Hibernians goalkeeper Andrew Hogg.
Steve Pisani who had just came in as a substitute replacing Clyde Borg almost proved to be a super sub for Floriana when off a cross by Andre Scicluna he saw his shot ending wide.
