Birkirkara suffered a 2-1 defeat to Mosta in the Maltese Premier League on Saturday. Birkirkara were looking for redemption coming from a 3-2 defeat against Hibernians.
Four minutes in, things were looking promising for Birkirkara as Marcelo De Siqueira went through inside the penalty area past Tyrone Farrugia and netted the ball in the bottom corner. However, in the tenth minute Mosta hit back.
Gianluca Cuomo scored a goal on a free-kick. Mark Miller’s side equalised on the 75th minute. Substitute Zachary Brincat drilled a low shot from the edge of the penalty area that was too much from Andrew Hogg.
Birkirkara hit back immediately and nearly regained their lead three minutes later. Danilo Chapoval was on the receiving end of a cross from the left and sent a header that forced an excellent save from Andreas Vella.
In the 81st minute, Akeem Garnet Roach’s low cross found Davy N’Guessan Angan who scored the winning goal for Mosta.
