The Savannah Tigers

Rivers United V Doma United: Match Preview

Doma United are the visitors on Thursday 18th May, 2023 for the penultimate game of the 2022/23 Premier Football League campaign for the two sides.

Last Monday’s 1-0 win over Sunshine Stars all but secured Rivers United’s ticket for the NPFL Super Six Playoff after a tough campaign combined with their continental engagement. However, that home win could be tested by Akinade Onigbinde’s side who are also in the hunt for the playoff ticket in group B.

A goalless home draw against Rangers International felt like a loss to the Savannah Tigers who were hoping to secure their playoff spot before the final game of the season.

The Season So Far

Doma United have continued to defy all odds after securing their place in 2023/2024 Premier League and now pushing for the playoff spot.

Last League Meeting

Tomorrow’s clash between these two sides is match day sixteen fixture that was rescheduled due to Rivers’ continental engagement. In their first meeting, Ndasi Kadiang’s 25th minutes header put the visitor’s ahead before Usman Musa’s braced sealed a remarkable comeback for the Tigers at home.
