Rivers United to Win

The race for Nigerian Premier Football League (NPFL) podium places is in full swing. Pacesetters Kano Pillars travel to the Yakubu Gowon Stadium for a tough fixture against Rivers United. The hosts are unbeatable at home since 2018 and also boast a better H2H record in this fixture. They have not lost to Kano Pillars in nine competitive fixtures, winning seven and drawing two. The fixture allows United to close the gap on Kano at the top to three points and should be able to realize this in this fixture.

Total Goals: Under 2.5

The last three away fixtures involving Kano Pillars have seen three goals. For Rivers United, the Under 2.5 has been seen in eleven successive home matches. With both sides involved in low scoring affairs and showcasing a tendency for missing chances, these fixtures should follow a similar pattern. The Under 2.5 is favoured and should be realized as both sides come face to face.

Both Teams to Score: No

Five of the last six away fixtures of Kano Pillars have seen both sides trouble the scorers. On the other hand, ten of the eleven matches at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium have seen Rivers United keep a clean sheet. United are masters of their destiny at home and should be able to shut out their rivals.

Rivers United vs Kano Pillars: Team News and Match Preview

Rivers United

The Pride of Rivers came close to securing their first NPFL title last season, finishing four points adrift of eventual champions Plateau United. They can right that wrong this time around but have to address their league form first. They are six points behind Kano Pillars and can halve that deficit with a positive result against the league leaders. Ossy Martins has left for Lobi Stars, leaving Shedrack Oghali and Godwin Aguda to shoulder the scoring burden. Oghali has responded to the call, scoring a brace for United in their 2-2 away draw with Heartland.

Kano Pillars

From struggling to maintain their place in the top half of the table to lead the points table, Kano Pillars have come a long way since last year. The Pillars have impressed this season, making it to the top of the charts without help from their forwards. It is the midfield that has held dominance, especially Ali Rabiu. The Nigerian midfielder has scored ten goals in the Pillars cause, leading the scoring charts in all of NPFL.
