Luxol and Balzan lock horns before play-offs

Pegging in the top positions of the table from 15 matches, rivals Balzan and Luxol are widely tipped to produce a fitting finale to the last phase of the 2014-2015 top-flight campaign.

With the beginning of the play-offs finals on the doorstep, these two juggernauts share a resolve to emerge winners from their direct encounter tonight (kick-off 21.30) and bolster their morale for the battles ahead.

Balzan are justified in thinking that the difficult times are behind them after five victories on the trot propelled them back into the upper reaches of the table.

For their part, Luxol are having a great campaign, having won 13 out of 15 matches played, are still undefeated and can boast of being the best attack of the campaign.

Luxol can rely on the attack flair of duo William Barbosa and Celino Alves who have scored vital goals for their side.

On the other hand, champions Balzan hope that their talisman players Boicho Marev, Frane Despotovic and Slobodan Janjic will continue to show their positive patch of late.

Both sides have met twice during this season. In the first encounter, Balzan won the first honour of the season, the Super Cup, after seeing off Luxol 3-1.

On their part, Luxol earned revenge for the Super Cup upset as they defeated Balzan 11-5 in the first round encounter.
