The 18 weeks Ika Grassroots Football League comes to a climax this week with two teams battling for the top price.
With 3 games left to draw the curtain, all the matches are of great significance and sports247.ng reviews the upcoming matches.
Green Rangers Vs Galilee
Green Rangers are currently 6th place with 27points. They need to win 3-0 against Galilee and hope Winners beat Rainbow so they can finish 5th.
Galilee on the other hand need to avoid defeat to escape relegation given that they have better goals difference to Divine Academy.
Rainbow FC vs Winners FC
KG Sports Back to back defeat to Emelem and Unity Stars have handed Rainbow a lifeline to finish 4th. A win for Rainbow will see them leapfrog KG Sports. Meanwhile Winners FC have sealed their 3rd place and the outcome of the result will not influence their position. Other than pride Winners have nothing to play for.
Unity Stars FC Vs Emelem United
The clash of the Titans from Ewuru and Umunede will mark the final of the IGFL 2021.
Both teams have everything to play for but advantage Unity.
Apart from playing at home Unity needs only a draw to be champions. For Emelem to be champions they must win outrightly. Both teams played out goalless at Umunede and Unity are the only side unbeaten in open play. They lost their only match due to Walkover.
According to the CEO of the IGFL “Whatever the results IGFL 2021 has been a great success for all 10 participating teams as we look forward to a bigger 2022.” Dr Ken Gadaffi stated.
