With the league’s leadership at stake, Hibernians vs Birkirkara promises to be another classic match like the previous encounters. Leading the table with 24 points (8 wins from 8 matches), the Paolites can extend their lead over Birkirkara to six points, making a bold title statement. On the other hand, the Stripes with a victory would join the holders at the summit and make the title race more combative. 


Shona Zammit (Midfielder; Hibernians):

‘’I think it will be a tricky encounter which can be won by either side. I am sure that Birkirkara are working hard as much as we are and want to end the year on a positive not. In the meantime though, I think that we can be the biggest rivals of ourselves, everything is down to our hands. If we perform at our best next Wednesday, nothing will obstruct us from getting the three points.’’


Janice Xuereb (Goalkeeper, Birkirkara):

We are aware of the importance of this match and without doubts, we are preparing intensively for this match, both physically and mentally. We will be facing Hibernians, knowing that our target is to get full points but whatever will be the outcome, we won’t count ourselves out because there are still lot of fixtures to be played.


1st round encounter: Hibernians 2-1 Birkirkara.


Standings: Hibernians (1st; 24 points), Birkirkara (2nd; 21 points).
