This match features two teams living in the basement of the Npfl, Katsina United holding 15th place and MFM lying 14th. A good chance for both teams to improve their position.

Insights:
  • Katsina United have not yet lost a game at home.
  • MFM have yet to win a game away.

It's no vacation for neither Katsina United nor MFM as both were in action only a few days ago. Expect some tired legs on the pitch and/or possibly some changes to the lineups.

MFM have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 1000 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.
