Shooting Stars and Rangers International will today lock horns at the Adamasingba Stadium, Ibadan, in one of the mid-week matches of the Nigeria Professional Football League.

The Oluyole Warriors, who are fourth on the ladder, with 56 points in 35 matches, go head to head against table toppers, Rangers, who only few days back, claimed the maximum three points at stake in their troubled derby against Enyimba, following NPFL verdict.

The flying Antelopes, thus go into today’s encounter comfortably, leading the pack with 64 points in 35 matches played so far.

The battle for the top of the league is not just about winning the league, but also about picking the ticket to represent the country in the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup, respectively.
