Rivers United Vs Nasarawa United
Home win & Under 2.5
Rivers United returns from Tunisia where they lost to Club Africain in the Confederation Cup to face Nasarawa who have managed to scrap out three points away from home so far the season. Rivers United also have not lost any match at home so far this season. They have played 9 home matches so far this season, winning 6 and getting 3 draws. Nasarawa United is currently 9th on the log with just 3 points above Rivers United. The Porthacourt side will be playing catch up in this encounter
Remo Stars Vs Eyimba Draw & Under 2.5
Eyimba have been very poor away from home this season. They have just managed to get 2 points from their 9 away matches so far. Eyimba took all maximum 3points when they played Remo on the 19th of April this year. The odd favours Eyimba to at least get a draw against the Remo side who are currently sitting last in the log. The Sagamu Stadium will be a difficult ground for the Aba boys, but expect a barren draw in this encounter. Eyimba finished with 28 points in the first quarter of the season, sitting 7th in the log. The former champions will be picking up crucial away points in this particular one to keep alive the title hopes.
Kastina United Vs Plateau United
Home Win & Over 2.5
The first leg of this particular encounter this season ended in an exciting manner as Plateau United crushed Kastina United 3:0 in Jos. The table toppers will find this particular one very difficult to crack because Kastina United are very formidable at home. Out of the 9 matches they have played at home this season, they have won 7 and drawn 2. The odds favour high-flying Plateau United to get a goal in this one but expect the Kastina boys to clinch all three points in this high scoring encounter
Enugu Rangers Vs Gombe United
Home Win & Under 2.5
From 2012 till date Gombe United have managed to get just one point in Enugu, loosing all other matches. The current champions will be looking to advance a bit more in the log this weekend when they entertain the travelers at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium. The Gombe side have only managed to get two point away from home this season, expect them lose all three points in Enugu. This encounter will be a low scoring one as the Enugu outfit will try to secure a clean sheet in this one.
Wikki Tourist Vs Abia Warriors
Home Win & Under 2.5
The Bauchi based club is poised to take all three points in this low scoring encounter. The Abia boys will find it difficult to settle in this particular match even though they are currently 8 points above the Bauchi side. Abia Warrriors are yet to pick up a single point in Bauchi since 2015.
Abs Vs El Kanemi Warriors
Home Win, GG, Over 2.5
El Kanemi Warriors is among the few teams that is yet to lose or draw a single game at home in the NPFL this season. On the flip side they have only managed to get one single away win so far. Their perfect home run of form have kept them at the 3rd position on the log. El Kanemi will give the Ilorin based side a run for their money when they meet this weekend. Expect a low scoring encounter but the home side will pull this one-off
MFM Vs Akwa United
Home Win and Over 2.5
This is one of my favourite fixture of the weekend because it promises a whole lot of excitement and entertainment. The Olukoya boys will be in high spirit in this one following the return of the league’s top scorer Stephen Odey back to the team. The home team will also keep the pressure on the league leaders Plateau United when they come against Akwa United at the Agege Stadium in Lagos. Akwa United in the transfer window did some good business by bringing in 5 players to the team. The odds favours them to get a goal in this encounter.
Kano Pillars Vs Niger Tornadoes
Home win & Under 2.5
The second stanza of the league brings out the best out of some of the experienced teams in the NPFL. Expect the Kano side to take all three points in this low scoring encounter at the Sani Abacha Stadium. The home hasn’t been so formidable at home this season in as much they have managed to get
Shooting Stars Vs Ifeanyi Uba
Draw & Under 2.5
The Nnewi boys have been on a good run of away form lately. They have managed to get vital points away from home at Lobi and Akwa United. Shooting Stars also have not been so formidable at home this season also. The have played 9 home matches so far, won 5 and getting 4 draws. Lets expect a cagey encounter in this particular fixture.
Sunshine Stars Vs Lobi Stars Draw, GG & Over 2.5
Sunshine Stars will come out with all three points in this particular one. The both side are poised to at least get a single goal in this particular encounter. Sunshine Stars are currently 15th on the log with 24 points while Lobi stars are 10th with 27 points. The two sides are favoured to share the spoil when they meet this weekend. Sunshine Stars have managed to win 7 of their 9 home matches so far this season, i don’t see them extending it against this strong Benue side
