By Kurt Aquilina on 27th February 2020, 17:47

The BOV ePremier League exciting league phase is soon coming to an end! There are some great matches to look out for during this week. 

Battle for Bottom Spot

Bragging rights are at stake for Sirens and Gudja during their streamed clash at 19:00. Haller and Rudy will face off in what should be a highly entertaining fixture with both clubs that play great attacking football and you can follow it on Twitch.  

Both players have only managed to get 1 win and 1 draw throughout the first 16 matches and will be looking to climb the leader board after this head to head clash this evening. Haller will be relying on his usual 2 key players Maradona and R9 whilst Rudy will look for inspiration from Ronaldo and Messi who both play a key part in his playing style.

3rd Place Up for Grabs

Balzan and Hibernians will battle it out today for 3rd place as they face each other after an abysmal week for both. Dunstan and Isaac only managed to get 6 points from a possible 12. Dunstan faced Birkirkara and Floriana whilst Isaac faced Mosta and Gudja. 

Six points for one of the teams could mean that they get 3rd place on matchday 5 and almost guarantee that spot for the remaining 2 match days. Expect a solid defensive display from Balzan as he has only conceded 14 goals in 16 matches although Hibernians’ attack might be too much for them to handle as he has scored 33 goals to date.

Santa Lucia still unbeaten 

Another week ahead and another post on Chrismeister888’s unbeaten streak still intact, after an impressive display last week against Senglea and Birkirkara. Luck might’ve been on his side against Birkirkara for the first leg but his skill was definitely on show for the rest of the three matches played on the day. 

He will face Floriana who were still unbeaten until last week but after some depressing performances that saw him lose that feat and leave Santa Lucia all alone to get the accolade on merit. Floriana would need to get back on their feet and try to stop the unbeaten run on stream at 22:20 on twitch.

Final Match Day Preview - The Malta BOV ePremier League

The BOV ePremier League can will have it’s first League winner, with other things to look out for during the last matchday.  Santa Lucia Can Claim the League Title Chrismeister888 is in a good chance to win the League for this years’ edition. 12 points can mathematically seal the deal without thinking about the other results in the night and see him take home the €1,000 prize money. Should Chris be able to get those 12 points he will still be in the run to win the league unbeaten although there were some close calls throughout previous weeks but his class has always shown and made it a nightmare on his opponents.   Santa Lucia FC Christian 'Chrismeister888' Spiteri Hamrun Chase Santa Lucia for League Title Sitting at 8 points behind Santa Lucija, Brandsha needs to be on form against all opponents with a single mistake can cost him an early end to the title race. His opening match against Valletta and Hibernians, respectively are quite some tough matches for Hamrun since both teams are looking to earn some points in order to place third in the League. Winning these two games and praying for Santa Lucia's opponents to grab some points are the only chance for Hamrun to have a shot for the title. Hamrun Spartans Shaun 'Brandsha' Galea Battle for 3rd place heats up 6 teams are still in the running for 3rd place! Hibernians, Tarxien, Balzan, Gzira, Valletta and Floriana will be trying to get their hands on that coveted spot in the League Phase.  Floriana have the easiest run if the table has to be considered but we all know that it shouldn’t be anything to abide by as a number of surprises are waiting to happen. Our last Player of the Week, Brandon will be taking on Hibernians and Birkirkara to make sure that he is still firmly in the race. Tarxien are also coming fresh from a 12 point run and will be looking to repeat that this week vs Balzan and Senglea having Valletta as the last team to face.

Match Day 5 Roundup - The Malta BOV ePremier League

Match Day 5 of the BOV ePremier League had some well fought ties. Here’s how the featured matches went down Thursday evening. Gudja win the battle at the bottom! Sirens FC vs Gudja United (RudyFifaPlayer vs Haller10) Leg 1: 1-2 Leg 2: 1-5 Gudja kept it late in the first match of this tie but manage to seal all the 3 points at the end of this fixture. Rudy found the back of the net in the 23rd minute through a well worked R9 goal. The match remained a cagey affair throughout and it wasn’t until the 83rd minute when Cruijff got things back level. As the match came nearing its end, R9 popped up at the death to get Gudja the win. The second match had Gudja all guns blazing, showing Sirens how it’s done and why he does not deserve the last place on the leaderboard! R9 made the score 1-0 in the 1st Half and looked like another tense encounter but Gullitt had other plans making the score 2-0 in the 57th minute. Rudy’s Gullitt replied to make it 2-1 but goals from Cruijff, R9 and Neymar sealed the fate for Sirens.  Gudja United Manuel 'Haller' Schembri at Match Day 5 Points shared in the 3rd place tie! Hibernians FC vs Balzan FC (Dunstan12 vs isaackylegrima) Leg 1: 1-2 Leg 2: 2-0 The highlight match of the day was definitely worth the watch as both Hibs and Balzan were level on points, occupying 3rd spot before this encounter. Wins in fixtures would have seen one of them almost guarantee that spot for good.  Balzan were on fine form and a super R9 goal in the 15th minute got things off to a flyer. Both teams battled to find the 2nd goal but it was through another great goal that Balzan found it through R9 once again! Hibernians did manage to score a consolation goal at the death but Balzan got the first 3 points of the night. Dunstan made sure that he will not be beaten once more and locked position and his Mane and Messi were on hand to give him the deserved 2-0 win. Balzan FC Isaac 'IsaacKyleGrima' Grima at Match Day 5 Mosta regain some confidence Mosta FC vs Valletta FC (lukebartolofifa vs Txrbulense) Leg 1: 1-0 Leg 2: 0-2  It was a tricky tie for Luke who has only disappointed in this league phase, being one of the early contenders before the competition kicked off. Txrbulence, on the other hand, getting some well needed experience on the PS4 from his usual XBOX console.  Both players defended well throughout the first fixture and it had to be a moment of pure brilliance to break the deadlock and it was on the Blue side of the stadium, where it was R9 who unleashed a powerful shot in the 72nd minute to gift Mosta their first 3 points of the day.  Valletta as per the usual routine fought back in the 2nd round to make sure that he got some well needed points in the leader board and get a better position throughout. R9 once again clinical on the night with a decent strike in the 34th minute to go to the interval leading. Mosta tried to bounce back but it was Txrbulense who made the score 2-0 with a Cruijff goal at the end.   Last Minute Goal Separates it! Hamrun FC vs Balzan FC (brandsha vs isaackylegrima)  Leg 1: 1-1 Leg 2: 1-0 Hamrun fresh off a 4-1 victory vs Floriana, were feeling confident heading into this match to keep the pressure on Santa Lucia at the top.  R9 opened matters after some good one touch football with Cruijff in the 22nd minute after an intense start to the half. Isaac took it upon himself to level matters quickly and after some phenomenal possession play and a couple of posts, he did so in the 37th minute through his own version of Johann Cruijff. Both sides took their time in the 2nd half to test the water but none of which found the back of the net with the match ending 1-1. 2 important points dropped for Hamrun. The man of last minute goals “Brandsha” does it again! His 4th fixture in the tournament where he got some points on the table using the last kick of the match. Phenomenally worked out action dropped to the foot of the Dutch Johann Cruijff to bury it home and condemning Balzan to a sour taste afterwards.  Hamrun Spartans Shaun 'Brandsha' Galea at Match Day 5 Chrismeister888 shows his capabilities again! Floriana FC vs Santa Lucia FC (Mizu vs Chrismeister888)  Leg 1: 1-3 Leg 2: 0-2 Time passes by and we still call Chrismeister888 unbeaten and Mizu was not able to change that in these 2 fixtures as Chris got both wins after an early scare in the first match as Mbappe took the lead for Floriana after a mesmerising run.  Santa Lucia quickly stopped the party and started to run the show themselves after an R9 leveller in the 11th minute and a CR7 goal in the 27th to lead at the break. Another day at the office for Chrismeister888’s R9 as he bagged another brace in the 75 minute to end the match there and then.  2nd fixture did not disappoint as it was an entertaining fixture but the defensive masterclass from Christian was once again on show with another clean sheet for Santa Lucia. He found another hero for the 2nd fixture as Johann Cruijff scored twice to remain unbeaten. Action after Action after Action… Valletta FC vs Hibernians FC (Txrbulence vs Dunstan12) Leg 1: 2-2 Leg 2: 1-1 One thing was sure in this fixture, that both of the players love to play offensive football without a care in the world for their defence. End to end play throughout made it an enjoyable match for fans to witness.  Sadio Mane made sure Hibernians were first on the scoreboard in the 27th minute after a farcical goal which will definitely make it into our bloopers of the tournament. Valletta fixed both his camera and play style to find a way back in the match through R9 in the 37th minute. R9 made it two for Valletta through a stunning turn and finish in the 70th. CR7 made sure things ended as they started with the scores tied as he got on the scoresheet in the 88th minute after a tidy move down the flank. Second match was an emotional affair but it was an early Messi goal for Hibs and a late De Jong goal for Valletta which decided the encounter in the end with both sides taking home two points.  Valletta FC Gianluca 'Txrbulense' Sant at Match Day 5   #news-detail .page-content h2{margin-top: 30px;font-size: 20px}#news-detail .page-content h3{font-weight:700;margin-top: 15px;}

Match Day 4 Roundup - The Malta BOV ePremier League

Match Day 4 of the BOV ePremier League caused some joy, anger and disappointing scenes throughout.  Here’s how the featured matches went on Thursday evening. Tarxien delivers his promise! Tarxien Rainbows vs Gudja United (Klawka vs Haller10) Leg 1: 2-1 Leg 2: 4-0 Klawka bounced back from a nightmare of a matchday 3 with two wins over Gudja as he promised during the week. Tarxien started off with a bang showing off the new moments R9 with two cool finishes on the 5th and 27th minute. Gudja fought hard to get level and managed through a Maradona goal in the 41st minute with a calm drag back and finish. Things remained the same in the second half after a solid defensive display from Gudja. It was a close encounter in the 2nd round of this fixture until Tarxien broke the deadlock through R9 deep in first-half injury time. Tarxien continued to dominate the encounter and through a perfectly played team goal Eusebio finished things off in the 61st minute. Eusebio added another two goals later on to make the score 4-0. Tarxien FC Ryan 'RyanCauchi' Cauchi at Match Day 4 Birkirkara rue misses against Santa Lucia! Birkirkara FC vs Santa Lucia FC (Lawfu vs Chrismeister888) Leg 1: 0-1 Leg 2: 0-6 Santa Lucia needed all six points in this encounter to stay on course to win the league phase. The pressure was mounted on Santa Lucia to find the winner after a goalless first half and adjusted his tactics to be more aggressive in attacking but it almost cost him everything but Birkirkara forgot his shooting boots at home after missing two sitters in the 62nd minute through 99 rated Lionel Messi and on the 86th minute through R9. Birkirkara’s defence eventually succumbed to the pressure and in a late attack, Chrismeister’s talisman R9 scored in deep injury time to get all 3 points for Santa Lucia. The second match was more of a one-sided fixture as expected before the start of the two rounds as Santa Lucia’s pressure was too much for Birkirkara. R9 getting a casual hat-trick, Cruijff, Pele and Kante rounded things up to make the final score 6-0. Floriana are no longer unbeaten! Tarxien Rainbows vs Floriana FC (Klawka vs Mizu) Leg 1: 2-1 Leg 2: 3-1 Floriana ended a run of twelve matches unbeaten at the hands of Tarxien’s Klawka. The greens started off brightly, Mizu showing his usual hunger to attack. Things look to have paid off with a 42nd-minute banger from R9 to take the lead but Klawka had other plans as he immediately got level in the 45th minute with his own R9 showing what he’s worth. The second half was a balanced encounter and it was Tarxien who found the back of the net to make things 2-1, Eusebio with the killer. Tarxien took advantage of ’s weak spots from the first round and make sure he made it 6 points from a possible 6. R9 doing the deeds again in the 31st minute. Eusebio once again the catalyst in the second half with a brace and Mizu finding the net through R9. Floriana FC Michael Owen 'Mizu' Micallef at Match Day 4 Day to forget for Valletta! Gzira FC vs Valletta FC (bRandonN_93 vs Txrbulence) Leg 1: 2-1 Leg 2: 1-2 Definitely, a day to forget for Valletta, still shell shocked from 2 losses with Senglea Athletic, Gzira made sure to capitalize on that and he surely did with his R9 and CR7 on form to beat him 2-1 in the first leg. Valletta had to fight back in the 2nd round but Brandon did not waste any time as he found the net through CR7 in the 18th Minute. Txrbulence rolled up his sleeve and worked to get things level and he did so at the end of the first half through an exceptional goal from R9. A quick turn and finish in the 86th minute from Ronaldo was enough to seal the first and last three points of the night for Valletta. Valletta FC Gianluca 'Txrbulense' Sant at Match Day 4 Mosta disappoint once again! Hamrun Spartans vs Mosta FC (brandsha vs lukebartolofifa) Leg 1: 1-0 Leg 2: 6-0 Lukebartolofifa was in desperate need to show what he’s worth in this competition but unfortunately for him, it ended up a nightmare as he crashed to a huge loss to 2nd placed Hamrun with brandsha at the driving seat. The first match was a very balanced encounter with both Alisson’s having to work hard to keep the ball out of the net. It was one solitary goal which was enough to seal the deal for Hamrun, R9 once again excelling throughout. Mosta's Luke Bartolo lost his head in the 2nd fixture and wasn’t able to concentrate to continue giving their all after another early R9 goal made things difficult to fight back. A Pele and Cruijff brace and an excellent Cristiano Ronaldo goal were enough for Hamrun to run riot with an easy 6-0 victory to keep his title chances alive. One win each for Floriana and Hibernians Floriana FC vs Hibernians FC (Mizu vs Dunstan12) Leg 1: 3-2 Leg 2: 0-1 Hibernians had a great start to the game after the ball found it's way to R9 an impressive Eusebio run down the side in the 8th minute. R9 made things level in the 18th minute for Floriana after some good team play. Once again it was Hibs who responded with a Lionel Messi effort in the 30th minute. Moments R9 once again showing what he's capable of for Mizu making things level just before the half time mark. The second half gave us much less entertainment as Hibs pushed on for the victory but it was Floriana on a counter through CR7 which found the net and made the score 3-2. Mizu later scored another but it was ruled out for offside. nd round was a less entertaining encounter and had nothing in it until a Virgil Van Dijk howler gifted Hibernians the win in the 85th minute through CR7 Hibernians FC Dunstan 'Dunstan12' Vella at Match Day 4 #news-detail .page-content h2{margin-top: 30px;font-size: 20px}#news-detail .page-content h3{font-weight:700;margin-top: 15px;}
