    Match Day 16: Floriana 4 Zebbug 1

    20th December 2014

    A brace by Amadou Samb within the first ten minutes paved the way for Floriana as they beat Zebbug Rangers 4-1 at the Victor Tedesco Stadium. A win which puts them on the 21-point mark.

    Samb, who was back for the Greens after serving a one-match, unfortunatley he was sent off dying minutes in an unfair manner.

    For the Greens, Sacha Borg and Clyde Borg were ruled out through suspension. Zebbug, on the other hand, were in full strength.

    Floriana managed to take the lead on the 4th minute when Amadou Samb, served with a perfect backheel pass by Vito Plut, beat goalkeeper Fabricio Rapchan with a shot from a close angle.

    The Greens doubled the score six minutes later when off a Steve Pisani freekick, Amadou Samb headed the ball home past the Zebbug goalkeeper.

    One minute in the second half, Conor Borg almost made it 3-0 as he received a pass by Piciollo but his conclusion from the edge of the area ended just over the bar.

    Zebbug pulled one back on the 70th thanks to Mauricio Rodrigues Britto who concluded a solo effort with a shot which beat goalkeeper Neil Spiteri.

    Eight minutes later, Floriana restored a two-goal lead as Matteo Piciollo sped past Jacob Borg on the left flank and served Vito Plut who slotted the ball past the Brazilian goalkeeper.

    The Greens increased the lead on the 81st when Matteo Piciollo exchanged the ball with Vito Plut and the Italian striker hit low past Fabricio Rapchan.

    Two minutes from time, Floriana were reduced to ten men after Amadou Samb picked a second yellow card following an argument with Mauricio Britto.
