Imperial v Broad City
Saturday 15th October
Remo Stars Stadium, Ikenne
Imperial hosts Broad City in their first home game of the 2022/2023 TCC League campaign.
The visitors, unlike their hosts, started off their season with a hard-fought home win against Valiant. Now the away side, keeping up the momentum will be central on their minds in this MatchDay 2 fixture.
There’s plenty of work for Coach Adedeji to do after the Opening Day loss to Dino. Now in 7th, Imperial FC face a side that they failed to defeat last season. The first-ever meeting between both sides saw Broad City come out on top, with Imperial losing the most recent clash between both teams, by a 1-2 margin.
Despite scoring the first goal in these games, Imperial finished both games empty-handed. While the gaffer will be counting on the likes of Bilyaminu for the goals, he will also be hoping his defense keeps the visitors at bay.
An entertaining contest lies ahead between two of the league’s finest teams.
In the last two meetings between Imperial and Broad City, both sides have scored. Open
Imperial FC – L
Broad City – W
MAN TO WATCH
Azuka Alanta (Broad City)
His movement on and off the ball made life difficult for the opponents on MatchDay 1. He demonstrated aerial prowess to score the only goal of the game from a corner-kick; an area where he will be more than a handful for Imperial this weekend.
