Balzan target second win

Balzan will be all out to register a second win in the BOV Premier League as they take on Senglea Athletic (kick-off 20:15) in one of the two matches in programme at the Victor Tedesco Stadium on Saturday.

Following a narrow defeat to Birkirkara, Balzan claimed their first three points in a 4-2 win over Qormi and on Saturday.

Senglea, on the other hand, suffered back-to-back defeats to Qormi and Mosta and are therefore eager to open their account. 

Ricardo Calixto Correa serves the second of his three-match ban. Noureddine Lachrah is suspended for Senglea.

Meanwhile, in the first match, kick-off 18:00, Qormi take on Pietà Hotspurs in a clash between the two newly-promoted sides.

Qormi defeated Senglea 1-0 in their first outing but then lost 2-4 to Balzan. Pietà, on the other hand, suffered two identical 1-2 defeats to Hibernians and Birkirkara.

Jalo Ishaya Irimiya returns for the Hotspurs after serving a one-match ban.
