Valletta FC 1 vs 1 Floriana FC
Valletta scored a stoppage-time goal to cancel Kristian Keqi’s forty sixth-minute penalty to earn a point from a match Floriana could have won.
Floriana nearly forged ahead when on an overhead kick by Kristian Keqi ended wide following a tussle in the Citizen’s defense.
A few minutes later a chance came to Valletta when the ball ended wide following a Dzaria’s header with Akpan parrying away the danger.
Diego Silva saw his chance hitting the post footing following a fierce shot from outside the area.
Floriana couldn’t have a better start to the second half when Ulises Arias was floored inside the area by Steve Borg, from the eleven meters Kristian Keqi drilled the ball to the back of the net to give Floriana the lead. Valletta had a good chance by Tulimieri with the former Hamrun seeing his chance parried away by the Greens custodian.
