Our prediction for this Nigeria Premier League match:
After suffering a 2-0 loss at Kano Pillars, Jigawa Golden Stars will be looking to escape the relegation zone in the NPFL standings when they take on Heartland on Matchday 25. The Golden Stars continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fifth consecutive triumph at their Hadeija Stadium.
Heartland, who face a two-window transfer ban, did well to beat Lobi Stars 2-0 in front of home fans at the weekend. The visitors sit in the middle of the table ahead of the match, but seeing that they failed to find the net in the previous three away games in the NPFL, Jigawa Golden Stars are widely expected to extend their winning run at home ground. In the first half of the season Heartland defeated Jigawa Golden Stars 1-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
