Women’s league leaders Birkirkara return to action in Week 13 of the BOV Women's League as they meet Mosta. 


Birkirkara are three points above Mġarr United, who defeated Swieqi United last week, but the champions have a game in hand.

 

This week, the Greens will not be in action after their opponents Hibernians withdrew their teams from the senior and U-19 leagues. Hence, Mġarr will be awarded the three points.

With just one point separating these two teams, the tie between Kirkop United and Raiders could turn out to be the highlight game of the week.

 

Both sides are on the back of important wins. Kirkop hit back from a goal down to beat Mosta 3-2 while Raiders eased past Hibernians 9-0.

 

Kirkop currently sit fourth on 12 points while Raiders Għargħur follow them on 11 with both teams having played 10 league games.
