Both teams had last met in the Second Division, with Mons Calpe edging Gibraltar Phoenix to the promotion play off two seasons ago. Since then Mons Calpe have set themselves as one of the tams challenging for the top places.
In a similar way Gibraltar Phoenix set out to provide a similar replica of Mons Calpe by adding the first three points of the season on their debut in the first division against Mons Calpe itself. Phoenix struck first with a stunning goal from the edge of the box. The celebrations as they entered towards half time were soon stopped when Mons Calpe converted a penalty.
With tensions high between the two sides, Phoenix came up with the winner, which saw their former coach, who had taken them up to the first division face defeat on his first day as head coach of Mons Calpe in a domestic league match.
