Imperial FC vs Sporting Lagos
Saturday 19th, November, 2022
Remo Stars Stadium, Ikenne
Two of the league’s most in-form sides go head-to-head in one of the biggest games of MatchDay 7.
Separated by a solitary point (and a Beyond Limits in 2nd spot) on the table, this one is a clash between the newcomers (Sporting Lagos) and the Old Boys of Imperial.
The capitulation against Atlantic Business will still be fresh in Coach Adedeji Ayeoba’s mind coming into this game. Asides throwing away a three-goal lead, Imperial lost the game by a 5-4 margin. While they’re lethal going forward, their defensive struggles are very well documented as they’re yet to keep a clean sheet this season.
And Sporting Lagos will have noted this as they pay Imperial a visit for the first time. They have scored 15 goals in the league this season – an average of two goals per game.
A first meeting between these two sides is looking likely to be a goal fest. Question is: Which team will outscore the other.
Imperial have failed to keep a clean sheet in TCC League this season. Generous
Imperial – WWWDL
