All the betting details you must know as Enugu Rangers welcome newly promoted Sporting Lagos in the first clash between them in the NPFL.

It is one of the keenly anticipated clashes in the NPFL as Enugu Rangers face off against Sporting Lagos at the Awka City Stadium on Sunday. 

This fixture is important to both Rangers and Sporting, with the teams eager to improve their positions on the Football League table.

In terms of where these two are on the form table heading into this all-important battle, the Flying Antelopes are in bad shape. 

Rangers are winless in their last five matches, with three successive defeats. For Sporting Lagos, it’s mixed, with just one win and two draws in the same period.

  • Match Analysis

After a brilliant start to the season under the guidance of Fidelis Ilechukwu on the pitch and the vibrant Barrister Amobi Ezeaku off the field, the Flying Antelopes have lost their footing in the NPFL.

But while Rangers have struggled for form, they have looked good in Akwa, where they have won four and drawn one in five matches. 

For Sporting with their better form, they have looked poor away with just two points from 18 on the road.

  • Betting Tips

Given their recent forms, a bet on a draw could be a prudent choice as both teams had their fair share of poor runs lately.

With that said, betting on a game with less than 2.5 goals could be another interesting if not wise option.

  • Prediction

Rangers and Sporting Lagos do not inspire much confidence at the moment given their recent runs. But these two have the quality to score, but I don’t foresee a high-scoring fixture this Sunday.

Coach Paul Offor and Sporting Lagos are yet to win away this season in the NPFL.
