It is going to be the clash of the all-conquering Warriors and the struggling giants this Saturday as Osun United of Osogbo plays host to Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan in a matchday18 encounter of the Nigeria National League (NNL).

The southwest derby, slated for the Osogbo Township Stadium, will see 3SC, going for victory to confirm their superiority over the host, who will, on the other hand, aim to halt the dominance of the Ibadan soccer lords.

Shooting Stars have been the better of the two sides in past meetings, with the most recent one being the 3-0 drubbing of the Osogbo based side in the first round of the current season.

The last time both sides met at this venue was during the 2018/19 season and it was the Ibadan soccer lords who ran away with a 1-0 triumph.

The Oluyole Warriors top the Group B1 log with 38 points and look good to pick a playoff ticket as the winner of the group but Ossn United are hovering around the drop zone as they presently occupy the eighth position with 20 points,

Based on this and other statistics, the Omoluabi giants, who just had a change of guards in their management and technical crew, surely have a huge mountain to surmount.

The coach Edith Agoye tutored 3SC, who have become a dreaded foe to other teams, going by their sterling performance so far this season, will want to further claim bragging rights over their host and as well maintain their good run in the ongoing campaign.
