Lija Athletic will welcome Hibernians to MFA Centenary Stadium for a matchday 21 fixture in Malta Maltese Premier League. The last meeting on 25th October 2020 ended in a Hibernians 8-1 win. Both sides have met three times in the most recent seasons. Lija Athletic has won 0 matches, and Hibernians triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 6.33 goals, while both teams score 33% of the time.

Hibernians's recent game against Mosta ended in a home 2-0 win. Hibernians dominated the game and deserved the win. Hibernians pushed forward in the second half and scored in the 48th and 52nd minute.

Since the start of the season, Lija Athletic is more dominant at home. They have three wins out of 12 games on home soil. Although Lija Athletic is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 25% home clean sheets.

Hibernians has picked up 15 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Hibernians has collected 2.27 points on average per away game, compared to 2.17 at home.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Tan-Nar has won just 25% of home games. On average they score 1.17 goals and concede 1.50 per game. Hibernians is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Lija Athletic wins on average 1.08 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Hibernians. My prediction is Hibernians to win.
