Under 2.5: Yes

There hasn’t been much fanfare between these teams in previous encounters and we don’t see that trend changing on matchday. While these teams have never shared the spoils in seven previous meetings since 2016, an interesting twist is that six of those games had a scoreline of 1-0 in favour of the home team. The last meeting between Nasarawa and Rivers United ended 2-0 in favour of Rivers United back in February this year.

Nasarawa to win 1-0

Given the few goals that have been scored between these teams and that they are both good defensively, we don’t see many goals at full-time. A narrow victory of 1-0 in favour of the hosts is our prediction for Nasarawa Rivers United.

Nasarawa to win first-half

Nasarawa United have hosted Rivers United three times and in all those games, they were ahead at the break. We are predicting a similar outcome in this game. The hosts are at their best at home this season after getting 12W, 1D and 1L so far. A home advantage plus the chance to narrow the gap between them and table-toppers, Akwa United, is why we think the hosts will lead by half-time.

Fixture Preview: Nasarawa Looking to Narrow Gap at the Top

This fixture pits two teams in the top four against each other. With that, we expect nothing less than an entertaining match on Sunday. Our game preview has more details.

Nasarawa United

Nasarawa United have been exceptional at home. Of the 49 points they have collected from 28 games played so far, the hosts have earned 37 points at home. An impressive home form of 12W, 1D and 1L has kept Nasarawa United in the race for the top four. The hosts are also the fourth-best in the league on home record. Moreover, Nasarawa United have won all their last 12 home games, which puts them in a pole position to claim the thirteenth consecutive home victory on Sunday.

Rivers United

The visitors have 1W, 2D and 2L in their last five away matches. Rivers United is ranked fourth on away record after collecting 10 points in 14 away fixtures of 2W, 4D and 8L. It is not a good record, especially the many loses and that should worry the visitors before the Sunday encounter. However, a good defence should give them hopes before this match.
