Tarxien Rainbows form and stats

There's been little loot from Tarxien Rainbows's travels as they have only collected 8 points from 11 away games in the Premier League. Tarxien Rainbows only have 2 wins to counter their 7 defeats and 2 draws. Three might be a magic number, but there's been little wizardry in Tarxien Rainbows's last three away games as they have all been lost.

Impressive finishing from V. Plut (2), C. Del Castillo and D. Falzon secured the home win 4-2 against Senglea Athletic in their previous game. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Santa Lucia wasn't a success with a 0-7 loss.

As you can tell from the result, the match against Senglea Athletic was as crazy as a clown in a village circus. Great fun for the neutral supporter with 6 goals, will the fun continue today?

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Tarxien Rainbows manager W. Muscat as the team has another away game coming up in only three days, this time against Gzira United.

The visitors have scored 10 goals from 11 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 0 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. For Rainbows, more than two goals on average per game end up in their own net.
