Competition: Nigeria Npfl

Match begins: 15:00 (UTC)
Venue: Adamasingba Stadium (10000 seats)

Look at this absorbing match in the Npfl. Shooting Stars is in the 17th place from playing five games. They welcome Sunshine Stars who are placed 14th from four matches.

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on grass and that the visiting Sunshine Stars have a different surface at their stadium (artifical turf). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on grass is 4-8-20 (win-draw-loss) from 32 matches.

This has all the signs of an absorbing match with lots of fun and excitement as both contenders are well renewed since they last saw competitive action. Game on!
