Lobi Stars vs Enyimba International tips and odds

Enyimba International have taken just one point from their last three Nigeria. Ligue 1 matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Enyimba International 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 Lobi Stars should prove no easy feat either – Enyimba International 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.

Lobi Stars have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Lobi Stars 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).

Lobi Stars 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 Lobi Stars 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 Lobi Stars’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, Enyimba International are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Enyimba International took a point away from Lobi Stars (1-1 draw).

Notably, Lobi Stars’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Lobi Stars 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 Enyimba International, 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 Enyimba International getting one against them.

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