Preview - Day 01 Valletta vs Sliema W Published on: 19-08-2016

After a fine performance despite elimination from the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League to Red Star Belgrade, Valletta start off their defence of the BOV Premier League title with a clash with FA Trophy winners Sliema Wanderers. A repeat of the Evolution Gaming Summer Cup final which the Blues won 2-0 two weeks ago.

Lithuanian goalkeeper Dziugas Bartkus is the only player who is yet to make his debut for Valletta as the club’s other three new signings – Steve Borg, Leandro Aguirre and Santiago Malano – have all turned out in the Champions League qualifiers.

Led by new coach John Buttigieg, the Wanderers hope to do much better than last season. Jean Paul Farrugia and Mathias Muchardi are back with the club. They also signed a number of new players including Milos Galin and Roger de Souza Vilas Boas.
