Enyimba leads the table as they look ready to win the maiden edition of the Championship. They top with 9 points and three goals difference having scored a total of 7 goals in the last four games.
They take on Lobi Stars who are 5th on the log and could rarely get a continental ticket. In their last five games, the peoples Elephant have won two and draw three games against the stars. The last time Lobi won a game was back in 2017 , 2-1 win was recorded.
Ortom boys go into this encounter with nothing to lose but there is a chance for them to get a continental spot, if they get a win against Enyimba and expect Akwa United to lose against Rangers. They have played 4 games, amazed 4points. A win take them up to 3rd on the log. Lobi Stars need to win to get a chance in any of the Continental Places, be it Champions league or Confederations Cup.
So, we have got battle in our hands as they both team prepare to match up. Enyimba are the strongest of the two sides, as regard the last four games which make them the best team so far in this Championship. With the likes of Stanley Dimgba, Abdulraman Bashir among others should do enough to win the game.
Betting tips, a GG and over 2.5 will be best option.
Lobi Stars 1-3 Enyimba
Kano Pillars set to secure title.

Kano Pillars host Ifeanyi Ubah in the last round of matches of Nigeria Professional Football League playoffs at the Soccer Temple, Agege on Wednesday.
Pillars have been one of the best team in this Championship playoffs, they have propagated themselves in good light but the show of shame will never go away, because those moments condemn our football into trash. They go into the last game against Ifeanyi Ubah as they search for their 5th NPFL title which could come at a cost of the People Elephant defeat by Stars of Makurdi.
In the last five games between these sides, Pillars have won two games which was recorded at Sani Abacha Stadium while Ifeanyi Ubah have also won three games which keeps them at advantage over their rivals.
But this encounter will be played on a neutral ground, with Masu Gida boys placed as the home side. In the last four games, Pillars have amazed 8 points and 3 goals difference, stay 2nd on the log while the Anambra Warriors have 0 pts and -6 goals differences as they stay bottom of the chart.
Pillars surely will be coming all out to win this game, they have got a chance against the clueless Warriors, doing all things needed to win the game. Ifeanyi Ubah could also act as spoilers, checkmate them in all areas and put Enyimba in good stead to win the 2019 NPFL Championship.
Kano Pillars should win the game. For bets, a straight win and over 1.5 is the best option.
Kano Pillars 2-0 Ifeanyi Ubah
