The eagerly awaited South West derby, which gained prominence during the Naija Super 8, saw the newly promoted Sporting Lagos side refuse defeat twice at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena last year, Footballrover reports.

The stadium was packed, highlighting the importance of football to the community and the clubs that are playing, which has developed into a growing derby in the Nigerian League.

While Sporting Lagos made headlines in the Naija Super 8, Remo Stars asserted dominance in the reverse fixture earlier this season, triumphing 2-1 over Coach Paul Offor’s side in Ikenne.

Looking ahead to the upcoming clash, Coach Daniel Ogunmodede affirmed his team’s readiness, dismissing any apprehensions about Sporting Lagos’ home advantage and expressing confidence in his away fans to match the fervour.

Their [league] position doesn’t justify their performance on the pitch; they’re a very good side and will be bringing the smoke, but we’ll be ready. They have great fans, but I trust our fans to troop out tomorrow and match the energy,” the coach said.

Sporting Lagos, having lost just one of their last five games with three wins and four draws, are poised to unsettle the Ikenne Boys.

The much-anticipated match is scheduled for a 4:00 PM kickoff tomorrow at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos, Nigeria.
