 Few goals at full-time

We don’t expect this to be a high scoring fixture even though Jigawa Golden Stars are having a poor run of form. There have been two encounters between Jigawa Golden Stars and Rivers United, all of which ended with two goals. And while the hosts have been poor defensively, their only 2W and 1D in the last ten matches have been at home. On the flipside, Rivers United only loss in the last two fixtures have been on the road. The hosts have conceded only 7 goals and scored 13 in 16 home matches hence should put in a shift for points in this match despite being only two points from the drop.

Under 2.5: Yes

A tense encounter between Jigawa Golden Stars and Rivers United should end with fewer than three goals. The hosts need points to escape the cut while the visitors need two points to break into the top four. Our pick is premised on the fact that this fixture will likely be a tense one as both sides fight for survival and CAF Confederation Cup places respectively.

Both teams to score: No

Our third pick is a one-sided scoring affair. This fixture promises to be a tricky one. Both teams need two points. While the hosts are only two points off the drop zone, Rivers United need two points to claim the fourth spot on the NPFL table. And while it is hard to predict an outright winner at full-time, the visitors should concede the first goal given how poor they have been away from home.

Match Preview: Jigawa Golden Stars Fight for Survival Continues

This fixture is important for both teams. And with only four matches to go, it will be a do-or-die for either side. More details are in our match preview.

Jigawa Golden Stars

With a few games to the end of the NPFL season, the hosts have shown glimpses of resurgence. This fixture will be another test for Jigawa Golden Stars when they face fifth-placed Rivers United in the 34th match of the season. The hosts are only two points off the drop zone and need to win this game to steer clear of charging Warri Wolves and Ifeanyi Ubah that share points in 18th and 19th places respectively.

Rivers United

Rivers United comes to this fixture wary of their poor away stats. The visitors have played 16 away matches of 2W, 5D and 9L. With only 12 goals scored on the road and 25 conceded, this fixture presents challenges of all sorts to Rivers United. Two points will be enough to earn the visitors the fourth spot and hopefully, CAF Confederation Cup places. However, that will depend on how Rivers United approaches this fixture, especially defensively.
