Enyimba to win
Enyimba is our favourite to win this match. The visitors are 6th in the NPFL table with 45 points after 26 matches. Enyimba has been formidable in every encounter with Abia Warriors, winning seven times and drawing twice in ten meetings with Enyimba. We don't expect something different in this fixture because the hosts have lost to Enyimba in all previous five meetings. Moreover, Abia Warriors have been poor in front of goal with only five goals in the last seven games. The hosts lost 2-1 to 18th placed Sunshine stars before this match.
Draw in the first half
Our second tip is a draw at the break. While Abia Warriors have only scored a total of three goals in three of their last seven games, the hosts have improved defensively. The visitors may be the better side offensively but should worry about their defence that has let in at least a goal in five of their previous seven matches. The fact that Abia Warriors have not lost all their last 11 home fixtures is why we think they will put in a fight in this game not to concede an early goal. Draw at the break is our value bet.
Few goals expected
We don’t think there will be lots of goals in this match. Abia Warriors has gone unbeaten in 11 consecutive home fixtures, a feat that we cannot underestimate in this fixture. The hosts have also kept four clean sheets in four of their last seven matches, all of which were barren draws. On the other hand, Enyimba has the second-away record in the NPFL. Fewer than three goals is a plausible outcome on matchday.
Match Preview: Enyimba’s Fight for Top Four Continues
Enyimba was dumped out of the CAF Confederations Cup in the knockout stage where they drew 1-1 with Pyramids FC in the first leg but lost 4-1 in the second leg. However, it looks increasingly likely that the visitors can once again play in the continental competition if they keep pushing for a top-four finish. More details in our match and team previews.
For Abia Warriors, this fixture is about keeping the momentum going, especially on home ground. Going unbeaten in 11 home fixtures has been an incredible feat for the hosts who are 13th on the NPFL table. Abia Warriors have won 8, drawn three and lost only two of their matches played so far and should fight to better that record in this fixture.
The visitors have their eyes on the top four places. Having the second-best record on the road after 13 matches is quite encouraging for Fatai Osho and his squad. The manager averages 1.68 points per match after 47 games in charge, during which he has won 24, drawn 1 and lost 16 times. However, it looks like every team has been struggling away from home in the NPFL. It is because Enyimba has lost seven games on the road, drawn twice and won only four. The top four race motivation and an impressive H2H with Abia Warriors are major motivations for the visitors in this game.
