NPFL: Enyimba, Remo Face Relegation Opponents Wednesday

The Nigeria Premier Football League title race remains wide open as the season enters matchday 36. While Enugu Rangers maintain their lead at the top, they face a challenging away game against Shooting Stars on June 12 at the Lekan Salami Stadium. A victory in this match is crucial for Enugu Rangers to solidify their position and secure the coveted N150 million prize money.

The title race is still open for Enyimba and Remo Stars with 60 points and 59 points respectively, making the battle for first, second and third place, which guarantees continental club campaign qualification, intensifying. Rangers need not lose any of their remaining three games to lift the title and coast home with the N150 million prize money. The match will air live on StarTimes Beta Sports Channel 244 at 5:30pm. Both Remo Stars and Shootings Stars lost their shine last weekend in away games and they need to recoup midweek to still stay in the hunt.

“This league has a nail-biting edge and as the final stretch sharpens at both the top and bottom echelons, it is fair to say that our league is gingerly finding its true groove and fans can’t wait to toast to their champion,” veteran Sports analyst, Mitchel Obi said. Tomorrow Remo Stars will face a critical match against Heartland, a team fighting desperately to avoid relegation. Enyimba also faced a relegationthreatened opponent in Bayelsa United, making their clash equally crucial.
