Nasarawa vs Akwa United
Nigeria- Professional Football League

The hosts are fresh from an away defeat against toppers Plateau in the league. Even though they lost they managed to sore past one of the best defenses in the competition.

Akwa United are also coming into this match after a series of disappointing results. Wins are hard to come by for the team in the 7th position. They are currently on a 3 match winless run also. We may be in for a close game as the hosts are on a 5 match win streak at home.

Nasarawa vs Akwa United: Prediction

There is no denying the fact that who is in better form. With a great winning streak going on for the hosts I am pretty sure we will see Akwa struggling.  They have scored at least 2 or more goals in 4 of their 5 wins in the home streak. They also kept a clean sheet in 3 of those matches. With the head to head stats also giving them the upper hand, I am backing for yet another home win for the Solid Miners.

Akwa has managed to only win 3 of their last 10 matches in the league. So even though they are way above the away side in the table, they will be tested here.

There will be goals in this match for sure. The defenses of both these teams are conceding at least a goal per game. Nasarawa has been good in attack with 27 goals in 24 matches, with a goal against the toppers as the highlight. Akwa has also scored in their last 5 matches on the trot. So I am expecting both sides netting goals on Wednesday.
