Today a match in the Nigerian Premier League between Plateau and Rivers United will take place.

Plateau

In the current season of the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL), Plateau holds the 7th position. In the last five matches, the team has secured three victories. Plateau is known for its effective gameplay, being among the top three teams in terms of goals scored (20 goals) and conceding fewer goals than many teams below them in the table. As of 7th January, Plateau suffered a 1:2 defeat to Kano Pillars but previously defeated Sporting Lagos 1:0 and lost to Kwara 1-2. Notable victories include a 5:1 win against Bayelsa United and a 3:2 success over Niger Tornadoes. Overall, they have 8 wins, 1 draw, and 7 losses, with a goal difference of 20:15, earning them 25 points.

Rivers United

In the current season of the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL), Rivers United is in the 17th position, having climbed up from the bottom thanks to a series of four matches without defeat. The team is distinguished by its strong defence, conceding only 8 goals, which ranks them alongside the leaders in this aspect. However, due to their participation in the CAF Confederations Cup, Rivers United has played five matches less than most teams. As of 7th January, their last match against Gombe ended in a 1:1 draw. Before that, Rivers United drew 1:1 with Bendel and won against Bayelsa United 2:0 and Abia Warriors 2:1. Their only recent loss was a 0:1 defeat to Katsina United. In total, they have 4 wins, 5 draws, and 3 losses, scoring 11 goals and conceding 8, resulting in 17 points.

Head-to-Head 

In the last five matches between Rivers United and Plateau, both teams have shown equal performance, each securing two victories and one draw. Rivers United won 2:0 on 1st June 2022, but Plateau triumphed 1:0 on 6th February 2022. On 30th June 2021, Rivers won 3:1, and on 3rd March 2021, the teams drew 1:1.

Match prediction: Plateau - Rivers United

Rivers United hasn't lost in their last four matches and, with their exit from the CAF Confederations Cup, they now have time to focus on the league. They could potentially rise at least to mid-table with their five games in hand. Rivers United are strong in defence, but they have conceded in recent matches, and considering Plateau's 20 goals, a bet on over 1.5 total goals seems likely.
