Hibernians forged ahead on the half hour mark. Tiago Adan Fonseca served Taylon Correa Marcolino and the latter drilled a low shot past Matthew Farrugia.

The Paolites added another goal one minute prior to half-time. Jake Grech ran inside the penalty area before sending a fine shot that went inside the net.

Following this result, Hibernians are now two points behind Valletta. This means that Valletta will need to beat Hamrun Spartans to make sure of retaining the Premier League. On the other hand, Hibernians need to beat Balzan at all costs in order to stand a chance.
