Valletta lead the title race with 47 points, three points ahead of Hibs.
Hibernians are the current holders of the BOV Premier League, having won the league in the 2014/15 season.
The Champions of Malta have recently extended the contracts of youngsters, Dunstan Vella and Zack Scerri. This news allows the Hibs following to see that they have a number of young talents for the future.
Hibs also offered a five-year-contract to talented forward, Jurgen Degabriele. The Maltese youngster was named “Best Youth League Player” last season and has scored three goals in 13 games this season.
Hibs’ talented defender, Vella revealed the team’s plans in a recent interview with ElWriteBack saying, “We aim to win the league by giving 100% during each training session.
“This is essential as it fully prepares us for future matches, and brings out our best performances.
“At times we do not manage to succeed at achieving our objectives, therefore we must assist each other in order to get back on track.
“It is very important not to underestimate any other teams as each game is of equal importance.”
The youngster went onto say, “In my opinion Hibernians and Valletta do not differ to a great extent. Although I believe that we have better quality in our squad.
“Valletta could still do better on the day just like they did in the second round.”
Vella concluded with, “In my opinion we have a squad which is capable of winning the league.
“All of our players are talented in their own way. Most of the experienced players not only have experience in Maltese Football, but they also have experience at an international level which is of higher quality than Maltese Football.
“Young players such as myself, are given an opportunity to train with the best Maltese players. From this opportunity we are gaining experience which will contribute to our success in football.
“A good squad must consist of experienced and young players and as a team we have all of these essential qualities.”
