Punditry versus reality: Our League prediction challenge

How our in house pundit fared over the weekend

Fisayo Dairo lays claim to having watched the Nigerian League for twelve years and last weekend, Match day 6, he predicted outcomes of the league games... Let us see how he fared


1. @pillarsfc vs FC Taraba: Two teams that lost in Midweek face off. Pillars are yet to concede at home so ur guess is as good as mine. 2-0.

At least he got a win for the home side, Kano Pillars won 2-1, 1-0 to Fisayo

2. @EnuguRangersFC vs El-Kanemi. Boys are not smiling in Enugu but there should be some sort of respite as I expect them to win this. 2-1

Rangers International actually whacked El Kanemi 3-0. Fisayo was right as regards the win, 2-0 to Fisayo


3. Sunshine Stars vs Wikki Tourists. The Tourists have won two on the bounce but I don't think they can make it 3. Fatigue is there too. 3-1

Fisayo Dairo got close this time. He predicted a 3-1 win for Sunshine Stars, but the game ended 3-2. Good one. 3-0 to Fisayo

4. Abia Warriors vs Shooting Stars. Stars look for their 1st away goal this term but eh, don't think they'll get it. Warriors to edge it 1-0

Spot on. Fisayo predicted a 1-0 Abia Warriors win and it ended that way. Way to go. 4-0 to Fisayo


5. @EnyimbaFC vs @sharksfc1. Enyimba are off a crucial away win and a long distance journey. Do I expect any surprises? Yes, so I go for 1-1

Enyimba won this game 3-2, so our pundit gets it entirely wrong this time. 4-1 to Fisayo

6. Lobi Stars vs Giwa FC. I'm backing Justin Tenger's men for their 1st win of the season against the table toppers in Makurdi. 2-0

Draw specialists, Lobi Stars drew at home again, this time 1-1. Completely wrong, Fisayo… scores 4-2


 7. Bayelsa Utd vs Gabros. Epa Ogbeide is trying to keep it tight at the back now. Clean sheets in the last two games & I expect another. 1-0


Gabros put up a challenge of Champions in Oghara that even Fisayo could not envisage and ended the encounter 0-0. #Fail. Still 4-3 to Fisayo


8. Akwa United vs Dolphins. Baraje faces his former T.A Stanley Eguma. I think the Oga will show why he's Oga. I go for a draw sha. 0-0

Fisayo actually thought Dolphins would do the almost impossible and get a draw in Uyo, something that has not happened before in the top flight. Dolphins lost… #EpicFail. Now 4-4

9. Warri Wolves vs @HeartlandFC_ng. I believe the hosts have enough to edge this out. They need the boost before next weekend. 3-2

Warri Wolves won 2-0, now 5-4 to Fisayo


10. @KwaraUnitedFC vs Nasarawa Utd. Two under fire teams will battle in Ilorin but I back the hosts bcos Nasarawa are bad travellers. 2-1

Fisayo got the win right but not the exact scores as the game ended 1-0 to Kwara United. 6-4


Verdict

Fisayo Dairo started like a house on fire getting the first four results right, even getting the exact score line in one of them before his predictions went awry

However, he has done enough to deserve another shot at the prediction game for match day 7.
