Draw at full-time

This promises to be a tough game between two teams that have a history of tense encounters. While Akwa United is at the top of the NPFL league at the moment, we cannot ignore the fact that Katsina United have been exceptional at home. The hosts have won their last three home fixtures. They have not lost in the last five home games (4W, 1D). A newfound resurgence at home and a desire for points to steer clear of the red zone are the reasons why we think the hosts will secure a point in this fixture. Three of six meetings between these teams ended in a draw.

A low scoreline expected

We don’t expect a lot of goals in this match even though the hosts have been victims of defensive errors. There have been six meetings between Katsina United and Akwa United and only one had more than two goals. A similar trend is expected on Sunday, especially because both sides have shown dominance at home and away respectively.

BTTS

Our third prediction may seem rather bold but it is a very likely outcome in this fixture. Katsina United will bank their hopes on home advantage and going five games unbeaten on home ground. Moreover, the hosts have scored a total of 12 goals in their last five games. They scored in each of those matches. On the other hand, Akwa United have the best away record in the NPFL and should fancy putting at least one goal behind the net on Sunday.

Game Preview: Akwa United Faces A Resurgent Katsina United in NPFL Round 29

Akwa United are at the top of NPFL and four points clear of the second-placed Nasarawa United. Can they widen their hold of the top spot on Sunday?

Katsina United

Despite being 15th on the NPFL table and only four points off the red zone, Katsina United have never lost at home to Akwa United. Mixed fortunes in the last five matches of three victories and two losses could, however,  worry the hosts. Moreover, the exceptional home record in their last five games is equally worth noting. Katsina United have found their best footing when playing at home, the kind of resurgence that should help them keep out Akwa United from collecting all points on Sunday.

Akwa United

Even with two losses, eight draws and only three victories on the road, Akwa United have the best away record in Nigeria's Professional Football League. The visitors are unbeaten in their last 18 league games, which gives them a lot of confidence coming into this match. However, Akwa United failed to get a win away from home when playing against Katsina United. They have made three trips to Katsina since 2017, losing once and drawing twice.
