ABS FC vs Rivers United FC: Home Win & Under 2.5
The NPFL witnessed a shock result last weekend when Sunshine Stars stunned ABS winning 4:2 at Ilorin. ABS have witnessed a drop in form. The management and the whole ABS team will be very much under pressure to get a good result on Sunday against Rivers United. The home team will be fighting with their life in their hand against the Port Harcourt based team on Sunday. Back the home team to take all three points in this make or mar encounter.
Rivers United on the other hand have not been very good away from home this season. They have lost their last 8 away matches consecutively. They have just managed to get 3points away from home all season and it all came from draws. This means they are yet to win any match outside their home ground. Expect Rivers to continue their woeful away form in Ilorin on Sunday.
MFM FC vs Wikki Tourists FC: Home Win & Over 2.5
MFM will look to bounce back from the mid-week defeat against 10-man Rivers United in Port Harcourt and maintain the pressure on league leaders Plateau United. The Olukoya Boys have always kept it strong at home. Having played 14 matches at home, they’re yet to lose at the Agege stadium. This shows they know how to get the results when it comes to home matches. The odds strongly favours MFM to get a resounding victory come Sunday against Wikki Tourists.
Wikki Tourists on the other hand are bottom of the away form table with only one point from 14 matches. They have basically lost 13 out of their 14 away matches in the NPFL so far. This stats shows they will surely fall at the hands of MFM come Sunday.

Rangers are currently in 15th position on the log with just two points behind Kano Pillars. They have also been very woeful away from home. They are yet to win a single game away from home but have also managed to get couple of draws to their ranks. Kano will be a difficult hunting ground for the current champions.
