Katsina United vs Kano Pillars football tips

Kano Pillars have taken just one point from their last three Nigeria. Ligue 1 matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Kano Pillars are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Katsina United should prove no easy feat either – Kano Pillars haven’t won against any Nigeria. Ligue 1 leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Katsina United have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Katsina United dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Nigeria. Ligue 1’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Katsina United are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Katsina United and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Katsina United’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Kano Pillars are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Kano Pillars took a point away from Katsina United (1-1 draw).

Notably, Katsina United’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Katsina United have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Nigeria. Ligue 1 away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Kano Pillars, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Kano Pillars getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Kano Pillars are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Katsina United hold the best away record in the Nigeria. Ligue 1 (W8 D2 L1). Kano Pillars’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Katsina United’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Katsina Unitedns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Katsina United win at 15/2 with bet365.
