Preview - Day 18 Valletta vs Gzira Published on: 14-01-2017

Champions Valletta have bolstered their forward line with the capture of Argentine Maximiliano Velasco.
The Citizens were forced to delve into the market this week after Jhonnattann Benitez agreed to join a UAE club on loan until the end of the season and yesterday they struck a deal for the 26-year-old Velasco until the end of May.
Velasco, who has come through the youth system of Argentine side Newell’s Old Boys, spent the last two
years plying his trade in Peru where he played for USM Porres and Municipal.
He is expected to arrive this weekend and join up with his new team-mates for training on Monday. The Citizens are hopeful Velasco will be available for Wednesday’s FA Trophy match against Balzan at the
National Stadium.

Valletta will be hoping to grab the three points, following last week's negative result against Hibs. New signing Radzinevicius is suspended while striker Michael Mifsud is out as he is due to have an operation to cure a nagging back problem.
