Hibernians and Valletta cross swords in this weekend’s big clash from the BOV Premier League on Friday, kick-off at 19:30.
Both sides claimed maximum points from their first outing. Hibernians defeated Floriana 3-1 with Scottish striker Paul McManus leaving a good impression as he notched a brace. Triston Caruana scored the other goal. On the other hand, a goal by Kevin Sammut gave Valletta an early lead in the game against newly-promoted Vittoriosa Stars but it was only late in the game that substitutes Ian Zammit and Dyson Falzon gave the Citizens a more comfortable win.
No Valletta or Hibernians players are suspended but the Citizens still lack the injured Kenneth Scicluna while former Hibs midfielder Edmond Agius has not recovered fully.
