Real Sapphire v Gbagada

Sunday, 5th November

Time: 8AM

Ijebu-ode Stadium 

It’s fourth versus ninth as Real Sapphire play host to Gbagada.

The newcomers have been one of the surprise packages of the season, boasting a prolific attack that respects no defense. They’ve scored eight goals at home so far this season.

For the Blue Eagles, this means two things. One, they have to be wary of Real Sapphire’s home form. Secondly, they have to find a way to improve their away form if they’re to get anything from this clash.

Coach Akinyelu’s men have managed only one away win this season, despite playing three away games.

This first meeting between both sides has a lot running on it. It’s a matter of who wants it the most.


Real Sapphire have scored 11 goals in four TCC League games this season.

Musa is an integral part of this well-oiled machine. He could, again, be the protagonist in another tough match-up.
