Nasawa vs Abia Warriors Free Predictions by Football Whispers
Nasarawa is only 4 points above relegation zone and must, therefore, fight to avoid getting dragged into a survival battle. On the other hand, Abia Warriors sit two points above the danger zone, so a win in this game could change the course of their campaign this season with a few games left. Our best two tips for this NPFL match are:
Nasarawa to score first
Nasarawa has the home form to find the net first in this game. Despite being 13th on the league, the hosts have never lost a match at home this season after bagging 10 wins and 5 draws in 15 home assignments. Moreover, Nasarawa has scored at least a goal in all their 15 home games played so far. We get a different picture on side of Abia Warriors. The visitors lost all their last four away games. Abia failed to score in only four of their last 14 games.
Both sides to score
We expect goals to be scored by both teams in this duel. Nasarawa has been exceptional in front of home fans, scoring in all their last 15 home assignments. On the other hand, Abia Warriors may have won only one game in 14 trips but the visitors scored in 10 of those trips.

Notably, of the 8 wins for Nasarawa, only one victory was on the road. With that, we expect the home team to fight for all points in this game. The reverse meeting ended 1-1, so a win for Nasarawa could see them go 8 points clear if everything else remains constant. However, with other teams also set to play their next games on the same day, a win is even more urgent for the hosts.
On the flip-side, Abia Warriors have never defeated Nasarawa when playing away from home. In the unlikely scenario that they win this game, it will be a historic one.
