Well that's that for Linfield in Europe this season.
After the Europa League heroics last year, they've gone out to the Maltese champions without performing anywhere near their best.
They rallied a bit at the start of the second half, but were unable to sustain it and suffered after Ross Larkin was sent off.
That said, Jimmy Callaher came desperately close to equalising in injury time but his header was superbly saved by Akpan.
Garcia's ninth-minute goal the difference in the end.
