After beating Valletta 1-0 in their first game, Mosta will be hoping to collect another three points against a team which did quite well in its first outing despite a defeat. Pietà, on the other hand, will be chasing their first points of the season.

Pietà will be without the suspended Rafael Xavier but Argentine midfielder Claudio Frances is set to make his debut. Mosta, on the other hand, secured the services of Portuguese midfielder Fabio Paim and Mexican goalkeeper Marcos Bernal.
