Conscious that they have a glimpse chance of playing in the Europa League, Sliema wanted to win and hope that Hamrun and Balzan will suffer a defeat.

Meanwhile, this was Pieta`s last match in the Premier League as the young side got relegated last week.

Kiliam Amehi put the Wanderers ahead on the 26th minute, while Ignacio Varela doubled Sliema’s advantage on the 62nd minute.

Paul Chimezie pulled one back for Pieta` three minutes later.
