 Nilayo set October date for Abuja City International Marathon 

Nigeria’s foremost marathons and road races running company, Nilayo Sports Management Limited, has set October 2, 2021 date for the maiden Abuja City International Marathon with a telecommunication company and financial institution set to be the headline sponsor and main partner.

Olopade who revived the culture of marathons and road races in Nigeria after 31 years in 2016 with the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon revealed that the route of the Abuja City International Marathon has been measured and calibrated by World Athletics grade ‘A’ measurer Norrie Williamson since 2018.

The partnerships will be announced very soon.” Said Olopade

Exciting football actions continue on Sunday across leagues in Europe and Africa. 

In England, the high flying West Ham take on champions Liverpool in a potentially exciting Premier League's clash at the London Stadium.

West Ham are trying to upset the established order in the Premier League this season, and the high-flying Hammers look capable of giving champions Liverpool a real run for their money.

A four game winning surge saw West Ham briefly move into the top four last week, before their weekend opponents Liverpool replace them following the Reds’ superb 3-1 win at Tottenham on Thursday. 

Liverpool reminded their Premier League counterparts and challengers just how formidable an outfit they can be in midweek, when the Reds ragdolled a strong Spurs side on Thursday.

In Spain, the focus will be on the Camp Nou where Barcelona will be seeking to stretch their La Liga winning run to five games at home to Athletic Bilbao. 

Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao have served up two five-goal thrillers already this month and the entertainment looks set to continue when the pair renew their rivalry at Camp Nou.

A Lionel Messi-inspired Barca ran out 3-2 winners in the Basque country in La Liga earlier this month before Bilbao exacted their revenge by prevailing by the same scoreline to win the Spanish Super Cup in extra-time in Seville.

In France, Ligue 1 table-toppers PSG will be confident about their chances of adding another 3pts to their tally when they make the trip to struggling Lorient. 

Lorient ended their winless run in midweek, beating fellow strugglers Dijon 3-2. PSG hit Montpellier for four last time out, making it three clean sheets on the run in Ligue 1. Lorient remain in the relegation places despite that win, while PSG held onto the top spot, but Lille are on the same points tally and continue to breathe down the necks of the title-favourites.

In Italy, Atalanta and Lazio clash at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia in a huge match at the top of Serie A.

Atalanta and Lazio lock horns again this week, after the pair clashed in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday. Atalanta won 3-2 on that occasion, but will their good record against Lazio continue?

Both of these sides are in fine form, as they boast the best records in Serie A in 2021. However, Atalanta showed themselves ahead of the Biancocelesti on Wednesday and we expect the same to continue.

Gasperini’s men have won four of their last five league meetings with Lazio in addition to their midweek victory. They’ve now won nine of their last 13 matches, winning six of their last seven at home.

Amidst this flurry of  actions across Europe, we have carefully picked a few matches in this Home Wins ACCA backing the awesome home favorites to triumph against their opponents. 

These selections have been made based on available H2H stats and current forms of the selected teams.

Sweet 40 Odds of Straight Wins ACCA on ZEbet

 Sweet 40 Odds of Straight Wins ACCA on ZEbet

Exciting football actions continue on Saturday across leagues in Europe. 

Headlining Saturday's actions in the English Premier League is the heavyweight clash between Manchester United and Arsenal the Emirates Stadium. 

Arsenal put in another scintillating performance in midweek as they recovered from an early deficit to hammer Southampton 3-1 at St Mary’s, extending their unbeaten streak to six Premier League matches and edging them closer to a European spot that looked out of reach just a month ago.

Manchester United will be heading into this game in a rather fragile state as well after their shock defeat to bottom placed Sheffield United in midweek. This brought their 13 league game unbeaten streak to an end and well and truly took the spring out of their step after that fantastic weekend win over Liverpool.

In Scotland, the focus will be on Celtic Park where Celtic host St. Mirren. 

Celtic are 23 points adrift of Old Firm rivals and Scottish Premiership leaders Rangers this season and some unconvincing performances of late have seen Neil Lennon nudged closer to the exit door. 

They got the better of Hamilton 2-0 last time out and should have enough in their armoury to overcome mid-table St Mirren but the visitors have caused problems for some of the division’s bigger sides this season and it could be a tight affair.

In Germany, title hopefuls Bayern Munich take on a resurgent Hoffenheim side at the Allianz Arena. 

After thumping Bayern Munich 4-1 in their first home game of the Bundesliga season, Hoffenheim harboured hopes of landing a European berth but it has been a stop-start campaign for Sebastian Hoeness’s men since then.

Earlier in the month, Hoffenheim became the first Bundesliga side to lose to basement boys Schalke this season, falling to a 4-0 defeat, before drawing 0-0 with Arminia Bielefeld but have they have won their last two contests 3-0 against Hertha Berlin and Cologne.

They have struggled for consistency and Bayern, who are establishing a lead at the top of the Bundesliga, can assert their superiority.

In Italy, champions Juventus travel to Stadio Comunale Luigi to face off with Sampdoria who will be seeking to put further dent in Juventus’ Serie A title aspiration. 

Mid-table Sampdoria have endured an up and down season to date, but three wins from their last four home fixtures suggests they could be starting to rediscover some consistency.

Juve’s patchy away form can be traced back to last season, as they have only won four of their last 13 away games in Serie A, losing their most recent match on their travels at Inter earlier this month.

That poor away record includes defeats at Udinese and Cagliari, as well as draws with Benevento and Crotone, with all four of those sides currently sitting below Samp in the standings.

Amidst this flurry of  actions across Europe, we have carefully picked a few matches in this Straight Wins ACCA backing the home and away favorites to triumph against their opponents. 

These selections have been made based on available H2H stats and current forms of the selected teams.

Picking up the pieces from Berackiah/Abigol Coaching Clinic in Ijebu-Ode, As Clinic Train Move To Asaba

 Picking up the pieces from Berackiah/Abigol Coaching Clinic in Ijebu-Ode, As Clinic Train Move To Asaba

We have made constructive efforts at providing you with  all the bit  that made the lot of the just concluded South West Zone phase of the Berackiah/Abigol Football Coaching Clinic.

Featuring about 12 sessions of training which includes Theory and Practical, the clinic provided a great opportunity for Nigerian Coaches to learn, re-learn and un-learn football concepts of various ideology.

Gian Marco as a Goalkeeper Trainee is one of the resource person from Italy. He was able to share his knowledge with Nigerian Coaches on the fundamentals of coaching and getting the best out of goalkeepers.

Speaking to Berackiah/Abigol Media Team at the sideline of the event he said:

"I feel honored to be here and I want to thank all the people who have worked to make this project happen and make it possible for me to come"

Marco believes he is just privileged to impact on the coaches and not  a 'teacher' who wants to teach what has not been taught before.

"What I want to do is to exchange my knowledge with the locals. I have found very   prepared coaches in this course and so I am finding my self comfortable. So it's just a first step and every journey begins with a step and we are to start.

Marco spoke highly of Nigerian Coaches for keeping the passion alive despite the myriad of socio-economic challenges and difficulties they have got to deal with.

"I admire their passion because in Europe where I came from ,we have plenty of infrastructure which are lacking here in Africa and despite that they didn't quit and they are working in situation that we in Europe can't even imagine,if we find such a situation with the lack of materials, infrastructure,most of the people in Europe would  have quit".

"I am not teaching anything it is a win to win project,I learn something they learn something we are exchanging Knowledge so I am feeling better with that Marco said. 

From NLO to NPFL : Marco has a dream

"I want this project to reach the top most especially as we are starting with the lower tier of the league,we want to reach the second tier and the top division of the league and even all over Africa. 

Roberto Bassi is another resource person who have taken the participants through the dynamism of the game .

He said in his words: "I am very happy to be here.

The last few days we have spent, the level of Nigerian Coaches concentration to the programme is good and they are willing to learn so I hope this programme will in the future be a point of reckoning"

Mathew Olorunleke is the CEO of Abigol Football Management and a co - facilitator of the clinic. As one of the brain behind the project, he believes the potential of Nigerian Coaches will help them scale the height coupled with what the clinic has offered. 

"It is not easy this is the first time, we are trying to cope to make it better and I must say from what I have seen, the Coaches are able to learn and are trying to cope as well.

Bridging the Gap and hopes

For Mathew, there is always the need to do more. He expressed the need to bridge the gap between talents and those who tend to develop them.

If Nigeria can have one of the expensive players in the market and we have players that are doing well in Europe, It will be very wrong to say Nigeria Coaches are not good. For us, we have discovered the missing link and now keen to bridge the gap.

He argued that if Nigeria players are doing well in abroad,that means Nigerian Coaches are good just that there is need to keep developing themselves in tune with what is obtainable in the advanced world.

Coach Siji Lagunju is the Assistant Director of Training and Development at the NFF and as veteran Coach himself, he preached  the significance for Coaches to develop themselves taking in to cognisance the principles of intellectuality, technicality, tactically , medically and physically.

High Chief Festus Adegboye Onigbinde was the cynosure of all eyes at the 5-day clinic.

An 'encyclopedia many will call him. The CAF/FIFA instructor urged all the participants to be inquisitive, impactful and be selfless in the course of their duty saying that integrity is another integral part of the job.

While noting the parallels between football administrators and coaches, the octogenarian appealed to all the participants not to lose focus and continue to do their best for the country adding that there must be unity of purpose in their ranks across the country.

116 coaches who attended the coaching clinic have now been given their certificates with the hope that the effects of their new acquired knowledge will bear positive impact on Nigeria football.

The clinic train will now move to South South and South East Zone where schedules will be held from 1st-5th of February in Asaba, Delta State.

The North Central and North East Zone programme will also holds in Lafia, Nasarawa State from 8th-12th February.

Dear Shehu Dikko, The Time To Be Firm Is Now

 *Dear Shehu Dikko, The Time To Be Firm Is Now*

Bayo Adegboyega

Whenever I remember the name Shehu Dikko, the excitement that comes with it is always  immeasurable, anytime I come across his picture, his level of intelligence strikes my mind and I'm always happy that a very competent individual is in charge of our elite Football League.

A few times I have met the lanky Administrator from the home of hospitality, I am always eager to ask for a photograph, I know he's a man that any sane Football lover will want to associate with and twice, he has granted my wish by posing for a picture with me despite the difference in height and status.

Shehu Dikko no doubt is a bundle of intelligence, an emblem of confidence and one man that can do magic with a formidable team and the "enabling environment".

In all spheres, we have seen what the leadership of the League management company LMC can do under the leadership of Shehu Dikko with the way the Nigeria Professional Football League 2021 season has started, the partnership with Redstrike is a huge plus, games are back on Television, contents with added quality are flying everywhere with the NPFL getting the positive image it needs to rise and rise.

Nonetheless, my personal grouse has being the manner at which clubs fail to fulfil their part in players contract, I feel the league will be stable if all clubs will pay salaries and other entitlements as and when due.

Even if issues would arise, let's get away from indebtedness and see the magic wand of money.

Shehu Dikko is a man who believes in lodging complains through the right channels, he has received complaints and has acted swiftly and ensured some players were paid their entitlements in the past.

Preemptively, I would have said Shehu Dikko is too comfortable or he has relaxed in making sure the LMC implements and enforce what the Framework and regulations talked about, but at the same time, I have to admit that he could be working on so many cases behind the scene and the results will be out soon for everyone to see.

There are instances, players have gone through the proper channel based on the advise and or directive of the LMC boss, but till date, they have not been attended to.

The compliance unit desk of the LMC is at the moment filled with complaints and I wonder how long it will take for the players to smile to the bank for what they worked for.

Some people are saying Dikko is too close to the club owners, others are of the view that the NFF second vice president is too considerate and it will take him time to do what is right as per hammering erring clubs on the issue of overdue payables, I really doubt though because he has done some laudable projects since assuming office.

I am however advising Alhaji Dikko to tighten his grip at the LMC helm, league followers are keen about the right processes and since he is a result oriented man, I will be extremely glad to see a man who roars when it's necessary and smile when the clubs are doing the right thing

Defender Franklin denies transfer link

Defender Franklin denies transfer link 

Nasarawa United central defender Tebo Franklin has said that reports claiming he is looking to leave The Solid Miners are false.

Rumours had been circulating that the player was keen elsewhere in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

Tebo has been one of the shinning lights of Nasarawa United as they zoomed to the top of the NPFL table with 14 points, making six starts so far. 

Such an important role has led to speculation that he might be looking at opportunities elsewhere.

However the player who models his game around Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, has pledged his loyalty to the club for the foreseeable future: "I just want to deny what has been in the press about my transfer. It isn't true at all. I am always committed to Nasarawa United."

Exciting football actions continue on Sunday across leagues in Europe. 

In England, Liverpool and Manchester United face off for the second time in a week as they contest the FA Cup fourth round at Old Trafford.

It’s been almost a week since the top-of-the-table showdown between Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield, but a lot has changed since then.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Leicester all won their midweek fixtures before seeing Liverpool’s incredible unbeaten home run in the Premier League come to an end after almost four years. The dynamic at the top of the Premier League has shifted considerably, but on Sunday, attention will turn to the FA Cup.

Manchester United head into this game having lost just one of their last 12 competitive games and, with the Reds continuing to underperform, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will feel an air of confidence ahead of this showdown.

In Spain, the focus will be on Wanda Metropolitano where Valencia will be seeking to lay a glove on La Liga leaders Atlético Madrid who have dropped just two points at home this season. 

Six of Atletico Madrid’s eight home victories this season have been secured without concession, though it may be worth slightly playing against the grain this Sunday night when Valencia make the trip to Wanda Metropolitano.

There’s simply no way Atleti can be opposed for the win here after winning eight of their nine home league games this season and Los Colchoneros are now unbeaten in 20 La Liga matches at Wanda, winning 16. 

In Germany, after a crushing 8-0 defeat in September’s reverse fixture, Schalke will be fearing the worst as Bayern make the trip to Gelsenkirchen this afternoon.

After winning their last nine matches against Schalke including an 8-0 towelling at Allianz Arena on the opening day of the season, it’s little surprise that Bayern Munich are as short as 1/7 for this Sunday’s reverse fixture at VELTINS-Arena.

Despite a recent blip away to Borussia Monchengladbach, Bayern remain four points clear at the top of Bundesliga after responding with back to back victories and there’s nothing to suggest that Schalke can cause an upset here, with the hosts winning just one and losing 12 of their 17 league starts this term.

In Italy, champions Juventus host Bologna in the early Italian Serie A tie. Bologna head into this game chasing a shock win at Juventus, but the champions have had the edge in recent meetings.

Across the last nine seasons, Juventus have won 13 and drawn three of their 16 clashes with Bologna. However, with their quest for a tenth straight title faltering, will that fine record disappear for the Old Lady?

The hosts were beaten by Inter Milan last weekend in a severe blow to their title ambitions. However, Juve lifted silverware in midweek by beating Napoli in the Supercoppa Italiana.

Amidst this flurry of  actions across Europe, we have carefully picked a few matches in this Straight Wins ACCA tipping the home and away favorites to triumph against their opponents. 

These selections have been made based on available H2H stats and current forms of the selected teams.

Authentic Nigeria Football Supporters Club donated rice, Noodles, beverages and a few sanitary items to the orphanage.

It's another Saturday ushering in exciting football actions across leagues in Europe and Africa. From England where the FA Cup Fourth Round fixtures hold away, to Italy where the Serie A take the front burner, to Spain where La Liga actions hot up, to Germany where Bundesliga takes the center stage, to Egypt where the Premier League gets more feisty. 

Kicking off Saturday's actions in the FA Cup is the all-Premier League contest at St. Mary’s Stadium between Southampton and FA Cup holders Arsenal. 

Southampton are considered dark horses to land the trophy outright this season, and when you analyse their performances in 2020/21, it’s easy to see why.

High flying trio, Man Utd, Man City and Leicester are the only teams to have turned Southampton over in 17 fixtures involving the Saints since September last year, and Hasenhüttl’s hard-running side are expected to go toe-to-toe with Arsenal. 

Saturday's Spanish La Liga actions kick off at Estadio El Alcoraz where relegation threatened Huesca entertain the high flying Villarreal. 

New manager Pacheta will have to complete some turnaround at Huesca if the club are to avoid an immediate return to the second tier, with Oscenses rooted to the foot of the table at the halfway stage and six points adrift of safety.

Things didn’t start well in terms of the result for the former Elche boss on Wednesday night as his side were beaten 1-0 at Getafe, although there were plenty of positives to take from Huesca’s display at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Fourth placed Villarreal have won two of their last three on the road and  the Yellow Submarine are heavily ripped to pinch a win away from home. 

Saturday's actions in the Italian Serie A is headlined by the clash between leaders AC Milan and the all-attacking Atalanta at the San Siro stadium. 

AC Milan secured another victory on Monday night, keeping them at the top of the table despite pressure from Inter Milan. The Rossoneri continue to defy expectations, while their transfer business is set to boost their hopes of claiming the title.

Milan face a real test this weekend, as they clash with an Atalanta side who have hit form. The visitors are now unbeaten in nine and could set their record points total for the first half of a season here. However, that would require a victory for a side who have drawn three of their last four away trips.

Amidst this flurry of  actions across Europe and Africa, we have carefully picked a few matches in this Straight Wins ACCA tipping the home and away favorites to triumph against their opponents. 

These selections have been made based on available H2H stats and current forms of the selected teams.

Actions continue on Sunday across leagues in Europe. Of particular interest are the Super Sunday clashes involving bigwigs in the English Premier League, Italian Serie A and Dutch Eredivise. 

In the English Premier League, Manchester United travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool for what’s shaping up to be one of the biggest fixtures of the Premier League so far, and it’s fitting that it comes between these two great rivals.

All things considered, it’s hard to look beyond a positive Liverpool result here. They haven’t lost at home in the top flight in almost four years and have won 25 of their 27 league games at Anfield since the start of last season. At these odds, backing them to close the gap at the top of the table looks fantastic value.

Sunday’s heavyweight showdown in the Italian Serie A comes at the San Siro where Inter Milan and Juventus will be looking to showcase their title credentials. 

Inter Milan are the leading scorers in Serie A, as they have notched 43 goals in their 17 games to date, while they have netted in all their league matches so far this season.

However, Antonio Conte’s side have taken just one point from their last two league games and they have a poor recent record against Juve, failing to win any of the last seven meetings.

Juve are on a four-match winning sequence across all competitions and over 3.5 goals have been scored in each of those games.

The Old Lady have only failed to net in two of their 23 games this season and they have scored at least three goals in each of their last four away fixtures.

The top two teams in the Dutch Eredivisie go head-to-head as Ajax look to make the most of their home advantage against second-placed Feyenoord. 

Ajax came through a tricky test away at Twente to add another 3pts onto the board, courtesy of a 3-1 final scoreline. Feyenoord kept the pressure on the league leaders Ajax with a 1-0 home win over mid-table Zwolle, thanks to a second-half strike from Sinisterra. Those results mean that the gap between the two clubs remains at 3pts heading into Sunday’s big match, with Vitesse also trailing Ajax by 3pts

Amidst this flurry of  actions across Europe and Africa, we have carefully picked a few matches in this Straight Wins ACCA tipping the home and away favorites to triumph against their opponents. 

These selections have been made based on available H2H stats and current forms of the selected teams.
