Once might Valletta find themselves languishing down in ninth place in the premiership with only six wins this season.
Today they face high-flying Birkirkara, third in the table though a massive fifteen points behind Hamrun.
At the Tony Bezzina Stadium, last season’s champions Hibernians face Balzan in what could be a tense encounter. Hibs have just seen Mosta go fourth above them and should Balzan come out on top, then both of them will be level on points in fifth place.
The problem for Hibs and Balzan, as well as the rest, is that with Hamrun looking invincible, they are all facing a scramble for the remaining places in European competitions.
