  1. Another deserved point for us with another good display from the Corinthians. A tally of 6 points that I think nobody believed we are going to achieve. A fair result at the final whistle as both sides created chances, pity that both teams ended with 10 men. Zejtun shall keep up this good momentum as we are heading to big matches like this game. Todays result shall encourage us to keep looking forward and give the utmost to pleasure our supporters.
    Well done to all involved and Keep it up Blues!!!
    Although in the current circumstances, its a heartbreak not watching games from the stands may I take the opportunity to say a big Thank You to the MFA administration for streaming live matches on internet.
