Our Best Free Predictions for Katsina vs Niger Tornadoes
In the reverse fixture, Niger Tornadoes defeated Katsina United 2-1. The question is can they replicate that on the road? Both teams have had a fair share of losses and gains in the last five games with Katsina bagging 2W in their last five outings while Niger Tornadoes had 3W in as many previous games. Our best picks for this encounter of the season are:
Katsina to win
We expect Katsina to avenge their loss in the reverse fixture. We premise our pick on two arguments. First, Katsina United won all their last five home matches, three of which were clean sheet victories. On the flip-side, Niger Tornadoes failed to win in their last five trips, drawing four and losing four. All the last away games for Tornadoes were losses and we don’t see how they will recover from it, especially against a team like Katsina that won all the last five home games.
Under 2.5 goals
A maximum of one goal was scored in Katsina’s last three home games. All the games had a similar scoreline of 1-0 in favour of the hosts. We expect to see the same strong defensive showing in this duel as well. On the flip-side, Niger Tornadoes leaked at most a goal in four of their last five away games. Moreover, out of 6 duels that have happened between these teams, only two games had more than two goals.

Katsina United vs Niger Tornadoes NPFL Match Preview
Katsina hopes to avenge a 2-1 defeat in the last encounter this season. Both teams are staring at the possibility of getting relegated. The hosts are three points above the red area while Tornadoes are just two points from the drop zone. With that, this will be an epic battle between two teams that are determined to survive with less than ten games left to play.
Notably, the hosts won all their last five league assignments. On the other hand, the Tornadoes bagged a draw and lost four times in their last five games. So, for Niger Tornadoes, this will be about ending a poor away run. The hosts hope to continue the good home run in this trip.
We don’t expect a lot of changes in the starting lineup of these teams given that no injuries were recorded in the previous matches. However, Niger Tornadoes will be without Lukman Mohammed who is serving a three-match suspension after picking a red card on 22nd May 2022.
