Matches in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) over the weekend did not just take a pedestrian route as it is often believed in some quarters.

The Predictor previews Abia Derby

The Predictor
It is derby day in the city of Abia where Nigerian giants, Enyimba, go up against rivals, Abia Warriors, in the Glo Premier League this Sunday.
The Abia Derby is live on SuperSport 7N and SuperSport Select from 5pm CAT [4pm Nigerian time].

I do not see any bigger game than that derby though some enthusiasts will feel the games in Akure and Warri deserve mentions as top notch meetings.
