Draw at the break

Akwa United recovered from a 1-nil loss to Katsina days ago to win against Nasarawa. That victory helped Akwa United to widen the gap at the top of the NPL table to four points. With the second-best record on the road this season, we think Akwa United can get some points in this fixture. However, losing only once at home, winning eleven and drawing three means Plateau will be no walkover. Akwa has lost four games away from home and the fact that Plateau United has never lost at home to Akwa is why we think this game will be deadlocked in the first 45 minutes.

A low-scoring fixture

We don’t expect a lot of goals in this fixture. Akwa United should struggle for a win against Plateau United on Sunday. We argue that the hosts will fight hard to keep their unbeaten home record against Akwa United. Moreover, both sides have looked better defensively in the last five matches.

Akwa to score first

In our second tip, we are backing Akwa United to open the scoring on matchday. The visitors are not only at the top of the NPL table but have been exceptional in the final third. While Akwa has scored only two more than Plateau United, the visitors have conceded 28 goals, 12 more than goals conceded by Akwa United.

Match Preview: Akwa United Looking for the Fifth Away Victory this Season?

While Plateau United looks comfortable in the ninth position, they can still fight for the top four. But can Akwa United get their fifth away win this season? We have more details in our match preview.

Plateau United

A good home run of 11 victories, three draws and one loss has earned Plateau 36 points out of 34 points they have collected in 30 matches this season. With such a record, we cannot risk ruling out the visitors in this fixture. They have also never lost at home to Akwa, which is another motivation for the hosts. Moreover, the hosts are only eight points from the top four and with seven games left to play, they can still aim for the Confederations Cup tournament.

Akwa United

NPL table-toppers, Akwa United, are probably the favourites of many soccer fans to win this fixture. However, a straight victory for the visitors could come with a hard-fought match.  Akwa hasn't been the best on the road. The visitors have eight draws in 15 away matches. They have three victories and four losses on the road. For Akwa United, 39 points out of 56 points in 30 games have come from home fixtures.
