Sunday 6th December 2015 : Tarxien Rainbows managed to beat Balzan, scoring three goals in the second half. Now they moved only 2 points behind Balzan, Birkirkara and Floriana who share the third place on 26 point

Balzan lacked Elkin Serrano Valero who was suspended and Bojan Kaljevic still injured, while Ryan Fenech returned for them on the bench. On the other hand, Tarxien had Ebiabowei Baker and Brandon Muscat were ruled out through suspension.

In the first half most of the play was held in mid-field, where both teams had only a couple of attempts to goal but none of the team were able to open the score .

On the 7th minute of the second  half, Tarxien managed to break the deadlock  when off a corner from the left by Ayrton Azzopardi, DANIEL ZERAFA headed home past goalkeeper Valerio Senatore.

Tarxien doubled the score on 68th minute when LUKE MONTEBELLO received a through pass on the right and advanced into the area before slotting the ball past Senatore.

Seven minutes from time, Tarxien increased the score to 3 – 0 when  Lucky Omeruo was brought down inside the area by Samir Arab and referee Sandro Spiteri ordered a penalty. From the penalty spot, ALEX DA PAIXAO ALVES did not fail to convert.
