Floriana FC 2 vs 2 Mosta FC.
Mosta fight back earned a draw in a match in which Floriana could have done much better to earn the three points.
Floriana took the lead on the twenty second minute from Maurizio Vella, the Italian midfielder gave Vella no chance from a direct free kick from the edge of the area to give Floriana the lead.
Arthur Henrique was sent off after receiving a dubious red card for a “challenge” on David Ifeanyi Nworah outside the area, from the free kick Zarate hit the crossbar. The Greens had to wait till the seventy fourth minute to increase the score, it was Maurizio Vella who was fouled inside the area by a Mosta defender, from the penalty Steve Pisani scored the second of the game.
