Gbagada v Dannaz
Sunday, October 9
Legacy Pitch, National Stadium, Surulere
Former TCC Cup champions Gbagada will begin their 2022/23 campaign against Dannaz FC at the Legacy Pitch on Sunday.
Coach Akinyelu Olajide’s side will be hoping for a fast start like they enjoyed last season when they won their opening three games of the season. The Cedars, on the other hand, did enjoy a similar run, beating eventual cup champions Dino SC in Ijebu Ode.
New campaign with its own objectives and goals for either of the team and a good beginning would definitely be on the mind of both sides.
In the pair’s first-ever meeting, Gbagada triumphed 1-0 as Ademola Akibu’s second half goal made the difference in the keenly contested tie on MW 2. The reverse fixture saw a seven goal thriller which went in the favour of Dannaz.
It should be an interesting match up plus an exciting conclusion to the season for the two clubs.
Gbagada have their past two opening game of the season by the same scoreline – 1:0 – Masters
MAN TO WATCH
Ademola Akibu (Gbagada)
The forward struck double figures last season in his debut campaign and he is expected to reach more outstanding heights this season.
