Birkirkara and Glentoran in their last match of UWCL

by Ayrton Galea - 16th August 2012

A determined Birkirkara side will be involved in the third and last match of the UEFA Women Champions League when this evening, in the clash of the bottom they will face Glentoran Belfast FC, of Northern Ireland.

Last Monday, Birkirkara performed a very solid performance. Although it was not enough as the Portuguese side SU 1 Dezembro won with a solitary goal, without any doubt the supporters left the stadium satisfied with the local champions performance. This was the second defeat for Birkirkara after the heavy 8-0 defeat against Olimpia Cluj-Napoca of Romania.

On the other hand, Glentoran are also lying at the bottom of the table but with a better goal difference than Birkirkara. In the first match, they were defeated with a 4-0 score against SU 1 Dezembro while last Monday they suffered the second defeat with a 4-2 score against Olimpia Cluj-Napoca.

Glentoran ended their league involvements in the second place with 33 points from 14 matches, six points behind champions Crusaders FC. They managed to win 11 matches while they were defeated in three. They netted no less than 66 goals while conceding just nine. The Irish team managed to keep eight successful clean sheets while it was only once that they failed to score. Their biggest victory in the league was on the 25 July 2012 when they defeated Fermanagh Mallards with an 11-0 score.

Since both teams are already eliminated mathematically, this will be their last match in the competition and without any doubt both teams want to end their commitments on a positive note. While Glentoran will aim to keep their third place, Birkirkara will go all out to achieve another positive result, and if possible earn the first points ever for a Maltese side in this competition.

The match will be played at the Centenary Stadium and it will kick off at 17:00.

At the same time, also from Group 3, Olimpia Cruj-Napoca of Romania will face SU 1 Dezembro of Portugal at the National Stadium. Both teams have won two matches out of two, but Olimpia have a better goal difference.

Once again, entrance to both these matches is for free.

We would like to once again take this opportunity to encourage all of you to come to the Centenary Stadium and support our beloved team.

Come on the Stripes!
