Valletta to celebrate 20th championship this evening

Valletta will be celebrating the 20th championship in the history of the club following the presentation of the cup at the end of the BOV Premier League clash with Tarxien Rainbows on Saturday, kick-off at 16:00.

The Citizens’ main target is to maintain their unbeaten run in the BOV Premier League – a positive run consisting of 32 league matches, including the last five games from last season. Having defeated the Rainbows three times this season – 5-2, 2-0 and 1-0, they obviously start as firm favourites to maintain this positive record.

For Tarxien, this will be a good test ahead of next weekend’s U*BET FA Trophy semi-final when they will face Valletta once again.

Sergio Pacheco De Oliveira is ruled out through suspension. For Valletta, Steve Borg will be back after serving a one-match ban.

Celebrations at the National Stadium are expected to start at around 14:00 and will follow after the presentation of the cup at the end of the game.
