Akwa United to Win

Heartland makes the trip on the back of three draws in succession. On the other hand, Akwa United get ready to welcome them to stretch their fifteen matches unbeaten streak. United are the form team in this fixture and have won four of the last five H2H meetings between them. While they did lose the corresponding fixture earlier in 2021, they have enough in the tank to take home the honours.

Total Goals: Under 2.5

With both sides trying to keep damage to a minimum in search of positive results, it looks unlikely that we will have a high scoring fixture on our hands. Three of the last five H2H fixtures have seen three or more goals. On current form, the repeat of Over 2.5 looks unlikely. Only two of Akwa United and Heartland's last five fixtures have seen that result come true.

Both Teams to Score: No

Heartland's recent renaissance has been built on its defensive productivity. They have kept two clean sheets in their last three competitive outings, holding last season's table-toppers Plateau United and Enyimba to goalless draws. While Akwa have found scoring easier than their rivals, they have seen a similar return if not greater. Three of their last five home matches have seen them shut their rivals, and a similar feat is expected of them in this fixture.

Akwa United vs Heartland: Team News and Match Preview

Akwa United

United continue to build on their unbeaten streak, laying waste to everyone who has come in their way. They are unbeaten in fifteen fixtures, winning eight and drawing seven. The performances of Ndifreke Effiong needs to be lauded, providing eight goals from his withdrawn position on the pitch. While Effiong has held his end of the bargain, the attacking unit has left a lot to be desired especially after the departure of Mfon Udoh to Lobi Stars.


Heartland can move up three places and take hold of eighth place with an upset win over Akwa United. While their defence has held their rivals, the profligacy of their attacking lineup has cost them points in the NPFL. They have only scored 3 goals in their last five away matches, picking up a paltry one win in this period. Young Samuel Nnosiri has impressed with five goals to his name, showing composure belying his 19 years of age. However, he is not available for the fixture and Fidelis Ilechukwu will have to find another source for goals.
