The retirement of Kyle Casciaro, combined with a mixture of injury and suspension ruling out Joseph Chipolina, Anthony Bardon, Ryan Casciaro, George Cabrera and Bernardo Lopes meant a number of players made their official domestic debut including Falu and Lolo Soler.
2-2 draw in 120 minutes. Both goals by Falu Aranda. Lolo Soler, who made a couple of big saves in the game, became the hero as he saved consecutive penalties from Guillermo Roldan, Carreno and Kike, while Calderon and Falu both found the net. Nayar had the chance to win the shootout but instead found the sewage facilities at the edge of the stadium. Toni got a goal back for Europa, meaning 17-year old Tjay De Barr had the responsibility of trying to win the shootout. The Gibraltar youth international managed just that to ensure captain Roy Chipolina lifted the first piece of silverware this season.
