Decisive matches against relegation to be played on Friday

The team to join Valletta, Sirens and Gudja United in the Challenge League will be determined on Friday as four matches involving the four teams still at risk of being relegated from the BOV Premier League will be played at the same kick-off time, 19:00.

Balzan are currently eighth on 31 points followed by Gzira on 30, Santa Lucia 29 and Mosta 28.

Gzira vs Floriana will be played at the National Stadium, Mosta vs Naxxar at the Tony Bezzina Stadium, Santa Lucia vs Birkirkara at the Centenary Stadium and Marsaxlokk vs Balzan at the Victor Tedesco Stadium.

With a draw against Marsaxlokk, Balzan would secure their status. On the other hand, Gzira, Santa Lucia and Mosta all need a win but while a win for Gzira over Floriana and for Santa Lucia over Birkirkara would be enough to retain their Premier League status, Mosta have to beat Naxxar Lions, hoping that either Santa Lucia fail to win or Gzira lose to Floriana in order to avoid relegation.

Meanwhile the final game for Hamrun Spartans against Hibernians will be played on Saturday at 14:00. The other two matches – Sliema Wanderers vs Sirens and Valletta vs Gudja United – will be played at the Centenary Stadium on Thursday.
