Gudja beats Mqabba 2 nil in the last fixture of the first round & sets a three point lead on Naxxar Lions who are now sitting in the fourth position after surpassing Swieqi United.
Gudja took early leadership of the game going immediately on the attack, and passed 1 up at the 12th minute when Shalon Diacono received the ball behind the Mqabba defense, beat the offside trap and alone, face to face with the opposing goalkeeper, he passed the ball to his right side and DHONATAN SANTOS tapped it in.
The game continued on the same line and half an hour into the match, DHONATAN SANTOS doubled them up with a synchronized volley following a cross from the right side.
For the rest of the match, Gudja controlled Mqabba's advances who were trying to get one back, but the Gudja defense was well organized and succeeded in keeping the second clean sheet of 2019.
