TCCCUP23 PREVIEW SEMI FINAL
Gbagada v Beyond Limits
Legacy Pitch, National Stadium, Lagos.
Legacy Pitch is the place to be as Gbagada FC will host Beyond Limits in the first semifinal of the TCC Cup at the Legacy Pitch on Thursday.
Earlier in the cup this season, the two heavyweights met in Ikenne and it finished in a 3-0 win for Beyond Limits, while their other league meetings also ended in wins for the TCC League champions.
While Gbagada have been underwhelming in the league, they have been able to conjure some solid performances in the Cup and reached this round with a comprehensive 3-0 bashing of Dino SC at this same venue.
In addition, this clash is a repeat of the 2021 final, which Gbagada won and it promises to be an exciting contest on Thursday morning.
As for Beyond Limits, they have won the league since its inception, but they have fallen short in the cup competition. Back-to-back final defeats continue to hurt them and they will be aiming to clinch the double this season.
MAN TO WATCH
Farouq Ogundare (Beyond Limits)
He is one of the standout players in the TCC this term and has been in a rich vein of form in recent weeks. The attacking midfielder could be the difference in this highly anticipated contest.
