NPFL: Apart From The Star Match Slated For Today, SSI Media Gives Some Reasons Why Group A Is Truly Living Up To Its Group Of Death Tag


As the only teams yet to drop a single point thus far in the NPFL this season, the Super Saturday match involving Group A leaders, Remo Stars and second placed team, Bendel Insurance, both from the same group, and only separated by goal difference is attracting serious attention, SSI Media gives some points that’s making this group answer to its name.

Just as it was tagged before the commencement of this season’s abridged league, NPFL Group A that includes Plateau United FC, is a real “Group of Death.

It is in Group A that has teams that have gone unbeaten so far in 3 matches, amassing the 9pts at stake.
Yes, 1st in Group A, Remo Stars FC and 2nd in the same group, Bendel Insurance, are yet to drop a single point each.

In that same group A comes a Remo Stars that have not conceded a single goal thus far. The only team yet to officially pick the ball from the back of their net in the whole NPFL.

The teams with the second most stingy defence in the whole NPFL this season are also from Group A. Bendel Insurance of Benin City, Kwara United and Gombe United. They have conceded only one goal each in 3 matches.

It’s also in this same Group A we have a team that have scored the highest number of goals.
Yes, Plateau United are the highest scoring team in the whole NPFL thus far this season, they’ve netted 6 goals in only 3 matches. Respect there, u hardly score plenty goals in Nigeria league!

It’s in this same Group A that a club has conceded the highest number of goals.
Nasarawa United has the most porous defence thus far in the whole NPFL, they’ve let in 7 goals in 3 matches.

It’s in this same Group A that clubs are yet to score a goal in 3 matches.

Two out of the 3 highest goalscorers thus far are also from Group A, they include:
Onyebuchi Ifeanyi of Plateau United

Imade Osehenkhoe of Bendel Insurance of Benin City.

Only Robert Mizo of Bayelsa United joins the fray from Group B.
All the aforementioned have scored 3 goals each.
The most remarkable one amongst the trio is Ifeanyi who can’t stop scoring as a central defender.

Group A also has a club yet to pick a single point this season, that club is Nasarawa United.
Yes, only Nasarawa United in Group A and Wikki Tourists in Group B, are the only two clubs with zero point from 3 matches, meaning: They’ve lost all their 3 matches played thus far this season.
