The stage is all set for the biggest grassroots football event in Nigeria. Today, August 27, the expectations are high at Nitel Stadium Lagos for the 2021 Turf Season Super League (TsLiga) Final. All eyes will be on 89FC and Schimchi FA in Lagos and across the world. Either 89 FC or Schimchi can win the title when the finale kicks off by noon.
The last time both teams met on Matchday 1, it is was a draw. Both Schimchi and 89 FC are levels with 29 points from 13 games but the former has the edge with a better goal difference. 89FC will need a very convincing win to overtake Schimchi’s bid when they face H.Micheals on Friday. H.Micheals F.C. is the best-attacking team in the TsLiga with 28 goals in 13 games, an average of 2.2 goals per game. 89FC have a big task to stop H.Micheals who will love to end the season on high.
Schimchi plays Amsterdam and must try hard to avoid a draw to become 2021 Champions. Amsterdam has 7 draws in 13 games, the most in the TsLiga, next to SportsWorks who have 6. The boys from Amsterdam have great teamwork and a high work rate which has helped them come back from behind to share points on several occasions this season.
TsLiga All-stars will face FootballBase Elites, 2020 Turf Season Super League (TsLiga) in a novelty match to kick off the final day event. Tigers have greatly improved this year with more players now recognised in the All-Stars team to face the 2020 TsLiga Champions. All thanks to the contributions of team captain, Henry Nwobodo, Emmanuel Udeogu, Benedinho’ and new signing Paul Badejo who ends this season as the top scorer with 12 goals in 12 games. This will be quite a spectacle with FB Elites player, Jeff Amos, promising “we are coming out stronger and better… watch out for us as the defending champion.”
