No. 208: Marsaxlokk (Malta)

Say what you want, but you have to respect a team with an "x" and two "k's" in its name.

Marsaxlokk, which features five players from Malta's national team, finished second in the Maltese Premier League last year to earn a UEFA Cup spot. In the first qualifying round, Marsaxlokk lost to Slaven Belupo (Croatia) 8-0 aggregate. Slaven Belupo went on to win again in the second qualifying round before losing in the first round proper to CSKA Moscow by a 3-1 aggregate.

Marsaxlokk currently resides in 7th place in the league and in the quarterfinals of the domestic cup.
