Any pre-match nerves were settled inside the opening ten minutes when Gilmar volleyed home from the edge of the box to put Hibernians in front, a lead they never let slip.
Jorginho made it 2-0 when he scrambled home a free kick from the edge of the penalty box.
On the half hour Hibs had the game wrapped up when a delicate chip over the defense by Jurgen Kristensen beat everyone including the keeper to make it 3-0 and still an hour to play.
Hibs added to Mosta’s misery with goal number four shortly after the restart, Gilmar getting his second of the afternoon.
Little mention of Mosta simply because they offered little throughout the game except for damage limitation that still saw them concede four goals.
