The Linfield vs. La Fiorita match will be played on Wednesday, June 28, at the Windsor Park, Belfast. This is the first leg of Champions League first qualifying round. Linfield is Northern Irish champion, while La Fiorita is Maltese champion.


  • Linfield is in an unbelievable form at the moment - they are in a series of 20 games without defeat. Also, they recorded only one draw during that period. Their last loss came January 3, which is the longest series in European football at the moment!
  • La Fiorita is also in a perfect form - they recorded nine victories and only one defeat in their last ten games in all competitions.


This will be the first meeting between these two teams.


Linfield won the title in Northern Ireland after their only rivals Crusaders suffered a shock defeat only two games before the end of the championship. They took advantage of their slip-off and won the title with two points ahead of Crusaders. The finish of the season was spectacular for them - Crusaders had a significant advantage early in the season, but Linfield managed to chase them down and beat them in the dying moments of the season.

La Fiorita won the title on Malta after defeating Tre Penne in the playoffs finals by 2:1 after extra time. It is interesting that Tre Penne defeated them comfortably in the Cup match one month before, by 2:0. The Maltese champion will try to qualify for the next phase, but against a team that is currently in the best form in the world of football, they aren't too optimistic.

Linfield is the favorite to win this match, and we believe that the hosts feel they don't have any margin for error. Of course, La Fiorita will put up a fight, and we may see more than 2.5 goals in the upcoming game.
