2023/2024 NPFL Match Day 20: Bendel Insurance FC set for 2nd round battle against Sporting Lagos

Posted : 18 February 2024

As the second round of the 2023/2024 Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) resumes nationwide, Bendel Insurance Football Club of Benin is on a trip to Lagos for the Match Day 20 game with Sporting Lagos.

The Match Day 20 clash between the top-flight league newcomers, Sporting Lagos FC, and the Benin Arsenals, is scheduled to kick off at 4:00 PM at the Mobolaji Johnson Stadium, Surulere.

The Benin Arsenals are facing the Lagosians for the second time, hoping for a positive result as they still revel in the confidence-boosting 3-1 victory over their matchday 20 hosts in their first encounter on matchday 19 in Benin.

With an eye on a top-three finish, Insurance will approach the Sunday game with caution, considering Sporting's exploit against former league champions Rivers United. Sporting secured a 1-0 victory against Rivers United in their rescheduled match on day 19, ending the first round on a high note.

The Benin Arsenals FC, of course, are not intimidated by Sporting Lagos in the revised fixture, despite the departure of some key players, including defensive stalwart Benjamin Tanimu and goal poacher Sarki Ismael.

Coach Monday Odigie-led Insurance never relies on a particular player to perform magic but believes in teamwork and determination as their guiding principles.

Playing under the right atmosphere on Sunday, Bendel Insurance is poised to secure their first away maximum points.

The good news is that there are no injury concerns in the camp of the Benin Arsenals, as captain Maurice Prince and mercurial Divine Nwanchukwu are fully back and in the squad prepared for the battle in Lagos.

The Benin Arsenals currently occupy the 7th position on the 20-team log with 30 points at the end of the first round of 19 matches. Insurance is yet to secure an away victory, and they are geared up for the first one, which is possible in Lagos.

Sporting Lagos, on the other hand, has been struggling in the lower ranks, currently occupying the 15th position on the log with 21 points. Bendel Insurance FC begins the NPFL 2nd Round with Sporting Lagos.
