The 2023/24 NPFL fixtures for this week will begin with a rescheduled Round 8 fixture between Enyimba and Remo Stars on Wednesday before Round 11  matches kick-off on Saturday, 2nd December.

Ahead of NPFL fixtures for Matchday 11, Lobi Stars are top of the table and will be eager to get a good result in Benin against Insurance to retain their lead.

We have quite a couple of strong NPFL fixtures this week as every team has lost at least one game, even as we anticipate a weekend of exciting football across the various match centres.

NPFL fixtures this week: Enyimba, Bendel Insurance opponents

29 November – 15:00 GMT

Enyimba vs. Remo Stars

Enyimba continued their resurgence in the league as they picked up their third consecutive win of the season against bottom-placed Heartland in Owerri last Sunday.

However, the People's Elephant will try to get another win as they host 4th placed Remo Stars in a rescheduled midweek fixture on Wednesday.

02 December – 15:00 GMT

Doma United vs. Niger Tornadoes

After an impressive showing at Remo Stars Stadium last week where they earned an away draw, Doma United will look to extend their unbeaten run to seven games as they host their northern counterparts Niger Tornadoes.

A win could see the home side go top of the table should Lobi Stars lose in Benin.

Bendel Insurance vs. Lobi Stars

In one of the blockbuster NPFL fixtures this week, table toppers Lobi Stars will travel down south to face Bendel Insurance on Saturday.

Monday Adigie's charges earned a valuable point away at the difficult Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano in gameweek 10, they will now look to halt Lobi Stars' unbeaten run as both both teams lock horns on Saturday.

Akwa United vs. Kwara United

After failing to score in their last fixture at Tornadoes, Fatai Osho's men will have the backing of their home support to trounce the visiting Kwara United at the Eket Stadium on Saturday. It'll be interesting to see how this game pans out.

Sporting Lagos vs. Katsina United

Newly promoted side Sporting Lagos are just one point away from the drop zone, and will need to get three points against 12th-placed Katsina United at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Onikan, Lagos.

Enyimba vs. Sunshine Stars

The People's Elephants will be eager to continue their home form in the league when they host Sunshine Stars at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba.

The visitors defeated Sporting Lagos in their last outing to steer themselves out of the relegation zone, and will be looking to upset the host who currently have the best winning run.

03 December – 15:00 GMT

Bayelsa United vs. Abia Warriors

One of the NPFL fixtures on Sunday will see Bayelsa United try to claw themselves out of the relegation zone when they host seventh-placed Abia Warriors.

Enugu Rangers vs. Rivers United

Rangers are going through a rough patch in their last couple of league games, but they'll be eager to halt their three-game winless run in the league this season when they host the Pride of Rivers.

However, the visitors have a six-game unbeaten run against Rangers, and will be buoyed by their recent 3-0 win over Academica Lobito in the CAF Confederation Cup and try to upset their host.

Gombe United vs. Kano Pillars

Another northern battle in NPFL fixtures this week will see Kano Pillars engage Gombe United at the Pantami Stadium in Gombe.

The Savannah Scorpions have lost four of their last five league games, and a win will help their quest to climb out of the danger zone.

Remo Stars vs Plateau United

The Sky Blue Stars can go up to 2nd on the league table if they beat Plateau United at home and other results go their way on Sunday.

Remo Stars have played the best football in the league and they have the leading NPFL top goal scorer spearheading their attack line.

Shooting Stars vs. Heartland

Shooting Stars will hope to get all three points against the worst NPFL team this season. Heartland have managed just six points after 10 league matches this season, and are the only side yet to pick maximum points so far in an NPFL fixture.
