Floriana FC 0 vs 2 Balzan FC.
Floriana lost their fourth match of the season in Balzan’s expenses.
The Greens had a golden chance on the seventh minute when off a Failla corner the ball hit the woodwork, from the rebound Enzo Ruiz failed to connect.
After a nil-nil half time, Balzan broke the deadlock on the fifty second minute when Alfred Effiong saw his low shot from inside the area beating Akpan to give Balzan the lead. Two minutes later, Floriana could have equalised when Enzo Ruiz once again had a golden opportunity with the latter saw his chance parried away by Sultana.
Balzan doubled their lead in the dying minutes of the game when Alex Da Paixao Alves received from Effiong, with the Brazilian forward unleashing a powerful drive giving Akpan no chance to parry.
