Matchday twelve: all you need to know

The matches, our predictions, the lowdown: here is our bitesize guide to the Premier Division action with the top four teams all in action against each other. 

The matches: 

  1. Lynx vs Mons Calpe (Wednesday 14th February – 20:30)
  2. Europa vs Lincoln (Thursday 15th February – 20:30) 
  3. Gibraltar Phoenix vs Glacis United (Friday 16th February – 20:30)
  4. St Joseph’s vs Gibraltar United (Saturday 17th February – 18:15)
  5. Manchester 62 vs Lions (Saturday 17th February – 20:30) 

Our predictions: 

  1. Lynx vs Mons (Mons win)
  2. Europa vs Lincoln (Draw)
  3. Phoenix vs Glacis (Phoenix win)
  4. St Joseph’s vs Gib Utd (Draw)
  5. Man62 vs Lions (Draw)


  • Mons should come away with a comfortable three points but will be without the suspended Diego Di Pietro & Jonathan Di Toro. Even though Lynx had very good individual players, their lack of quality in the final third has proved a problem and we don’t expect them to trouble the Calpians.
  • Despite a eleven point gap between them, we still expect this game to be as competitive and fiery as usual. Europa are without Kike but will be hoping to welcome Enrique Carreno back from injury while questions marks are raised over Anthony Hernandez who limped off in last week’s win over Phoenix – hard to call a winner so we’re going for a draw.
  • Phoenix put in an excellent shift last week against Lincoln and will be disappointed not to come away with at least a point. Jason Pusey will be hoping to make his debut while captain Pecas is suspended – in round 1 we would have said a Glacis win but their recent performances makes it difficult to see them getting anything.
  • On paper, Saints looks favourites and their back-to-back wins over Man62 and Glacis sees them sit third in the table, three points behind their opponents. Ayman Elghobashy’s return has brought back some confidence into Gibraltar United and their recent win over Man62 could help them find the form from the beginning of the season.
  • After their performance in defeat against Gibraltar United last week, this could be the turning point Man62 needed to really kickstart their season – especially when the gap between themselves and ninth-placed Lynx keeps on growing. Everyone would expect Lions to win but it looks destined for a draw.
