All roads lead to the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Onikan, Lagos, where eight-time champions Enyimba will take on Remo Stars in the opening game of the Nigeria Premier League (NPFL) Super Six playoffs.

Both teams have met twice this season, with Remo Stars coming out the better side over two legs. Will the Ogun State club continue their recent good run against Enyimba?

Enyimba vs Remo Stars Preview

Enyimba

The People's Elephants qualified for the Super Six playoffs as a result of their 3rd place finish in the abridged Group A NPFL table, just a point behind their today's opponents, Remo Stars, who finished 2nd. Enyimba will aim to win their 9th NPFL title as they kick-start their campaign at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena.

Finidi George's side have been unbeaten in their last six games, with four wins and two draws. However, they square off against a Remo Stars side that's been a tough nut to crack for the Enyimba side in recent times. The tactician will hope his team gets one over the Ikenne club as their battle gets underway.

Remo Stars

Remo Stars are coming into this encounter after three straight wins. Daniel Ogunmodede's side has been unbeaten in their last nine matches, scoring 13 goals and conceding five.

The Ikenne club qualified for the Super Six playoffs courtesy of their 2nd-place finish in Group A of the abridged NPL season. They'll be looking to build on their current unbeaten run as they take on Enyimba.
