NPFL/StarTimes: Anxiety grips Sporting Lagos, Remo Stars, Oriental Derby fans

Nigeria Premier Football League(NPFL) fans will be on the edge of their seat and heart in their mouth on Sunday as the Match day 35 gets to the wire with Sporting Lagos, Enyimba, and Remo Stars in crucial away fixtures which could significantly impact on their respective campaigns.

NPFL  airs live on Beta Sports channel 244 on StarTimes. 

This weekend both the Lobi Stars vs Remo Stars and Enugu Rangers vs Enyimba will be televised live at 3 pm and 5pm respectively on Sunday on the NPFL/StarTimes platform. 

Sporting Lagos, currently occupying the 17th position, will travel to face Bayelsa United, who sit just below them in the relegation zone, thanks to goal difference. Both teams are level on 42 points, making this a high-stakes encounter in the fight to avoid relegation. 

The historical trend of poor away performances in the NPFL this season adds another layer of uncertainty to Sporting Lagos’ prospects.

Third-placed Remo Stars face a tough challenge away to Lobi Stars. Despite their strong position in the league, Remo Stars have struggled on their travels this season. A poor result could derail their hopes of overtaking Enyimba and Enugu Rangers at the top of the table, especially if those two teams play out a draw.

Enugu Rangers will be hoping to solidify their position at the top of the table but face a tricky opponent. The reigning champions, Enyimba, are hot on their heels and could capitalise on any slip-up.

This weekend’s fixtures promise to be a pivotal moment in the NPFL season. The outcome of these matches could have a major impact on the title race, the battle for continental qualification, and the fight for survival. It will be a weekend of high drama and tension as the season reaches its climax.
