Football League leaders, Remo Stars welcome second-placed Lobi Stars in what is essentially the top-of-the-table clash. But the key question is, who will shine brightest?

For this encounter, both teams are expected to share the spoils, with under 2.5 goals expected in Ikenne.

Sporting Lagos vs Bayelsa United

Insurance have lost two and won two of the last five compared to Abia Warriors’ two wins and two draws in the same period. 

Insurance will look to bounce back from that narrow defeat in Katsina, while for Warriors, the task is simple - build on the incredible win against Shooting Stars.

  • Prediction

The Benin Arsenal are expected to make home advantage count in this fixture but are not known to score too many goals in the NPFL.

Therefore, under 2.5 goals is another brilliant choice to stake for what is expected to be a good market day in Benin.

Always bet responsibly and remember these predictions are not guaranteed outcomes but analyses put together using stats.
