Valletta favourites to maintain winning streak

Valletta will be aiming for a third consecutive win on Sunday as they take on Naxxar Lions in one of the two BOV Premier League matches in programme at the National Stadium.

The Citizens registered two narrow wins over Mosta and Senglea and a win on Sunday would put them on level points with Gzira United. Naxxar, on the other hand, are still chasing their first points after losing 0-2 to Balzan and 1-5 to Sliema Wanderers.

New technical director Stuart Watkiss will be hoping to lead Naxxar to a first positive result after they strengthened the squad with the signing of Austrian goalkeeper Christoph Nicht, Senegalese centre-back Ndoye Elhadji Ousseynou and Englishman Scott Fenwick.

Meanwhile in a clash between the two other newly-promoted sides, Lija Athletic and Senglea Athletic both aim at registering their first win.

Senglea earned a point in a draw with Sliema Wanderers before losing narrowly to Valletta. Lija, on the other hand, lost 0-4 to Gzira and 1-3 to Mosta

Senglea signed another two Argentine players – Gonzalo Leyton and Gonzalo Virano who could make their debut on Sunday.
