Wikki Tourist vs Kano Pillars Prediction
The Giant Elephant lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Kwara. It was their second loss in a row, and fifth from the past seven fixtures. This series of bad performances have put them in danger of getting relegated.
Meanwhile, Masu Gida won 2-0 at home against the Jigawa Golden Stars. After back-to-back losses earlier the last month, the team have recovered, and now are once again in form. As of now, they were unbeaten in 17 of their past 20 overall games, and scored twice or more in the previous three fixtures.
They are also in contention for a podium spot, and the last season, they had missed the title by the narrowest of margins. On the other hand, the Giant Elephant are placed in harm’s way of the relegation line, were winless in 16 of their past 19 overall fixtures, and had lost five of their preceding seven games.
Moreover, Masu Gida had also recorded five of the preceding eight overall h2h wins as well. On top of that, the teams placed second and third in the table are going through a tough spell, and Ibrahim A Musa’s men, who have a match in hand, will consider this as a good opportunity to move in for the kill.
Taking all these factors into consideration, it’s expected that Kano Pillars are about to record an impressive performance this Wednesday.
