Sunshine Stars vs Katsina United Prediction & Match Preview

Sunshine Stars vs Katsina United
Nigeria- Professional Football League
Date: Wednesday, 18 March 2020
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Akure Township Stadium (Akure)

Both these teams are looking for a win after a spell of irregular results. Katsina will have to break a jinx of losing at this ground. The hosts have lost 3 of their last 5 league fixtures while winning only one in return.

But things at home are just the opposite for the Akure Gunners. They are yet to lose a match in the New Year winning 4 of their 6 games in this period. In fact, they have not lost here since April 2019 winning 10 of the 15 matches since then.

Sunshine Stars vs Katsina United: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Stars have 2 wins and 4 defeats against this opposition in 7 previous meetings.
  • Katsina United are currently on a 2 match win streak against the Akure Gunners.
  • In 5 of their head to head games, the score had less than 2.5 goals.
  • Sunshine Stars have won all their 3 meetings in front of their home crowd.
  • They have scored 2 goals in all those 3 matches here.
  • The reverse fixture was won by Katsina with a final score of 2-0.

Sunshine Stars vs Katsina United: Prediction

It is impossible to not consider the home dominance of the Stars. They have a dream run in front of their home crowd and have an upper hand in head to head games also. With the visitors having a winless away streak for over a year no one in their right mind would put their money on them.

So I am backing an easy home win for the Akure Gunners.

I believe there would not be many goals in this game. In 2 of their meetings at this ground, the hosts won by a score of 2-0. In recent times the visitors never troubled the scores in 10 of their 11 away matches. Also, the hosts have scored 2 goals in 4 of their last 6 matches at home. So I will advise going with a correct score of 2-0 for the hosts.
