This was a match between two sides who were only separated by two points in the table. Santa Lucia started the match two points ahead of Mosta.

Oliver Spiteri’s side were looking for a positive result in order to consolidate their place with the top sides. On the other end, for Mosta it was a match which could enable them to gain some momentum following their win over Hamrun prior to the international break.

The match was quite balanced. In fact, both teams could not find a way past each other.

However, a late goal scored by Momodu Jallow of Mosta made all the difference. Weverton Gomes delivered a cross that was met by the Gambian forward who headed the ball home.

Following this result, Mosta climbed momentarily fourth.
