Ottasolo Pre Season Tournament: Sunshine, Yobo FC Through To Semi-final


Sunshine Stars of Akure continued to show the form that helped them scale through the relegation hurdles towards the latter stage of the 2020/21 Nigeria Professional Football League season with their performance at the ongoing Ottasolo Pre-season tournament in Lagos.

The Owena Whales remain the only team without blemish as they have won their two matches, scoring two goals in the process without conceding any to scale through to the semifinal stage of the competition.

In their first match of the pre-season, Sunshine defeated Smart City 1-0 before dishing out same scoreline against Remo Stars on Thursday.

They will however wrap up their Group B games with a top of the bill encounter against another NPFL side, MFM of Lagos by 3pm on Friday.

Lagos-based Yobo FC also secured their place in the final four after securing four points in three matches while host team, Ottasolo Int. FC was dumped out of the competition as they could only secured three points from three matches albeit not losing any game against three opponents.

Meanwhile, the remaining group stage matches at the pre-season would be taking place today with 36 Lion playing against Lobi Stars by 9am.

With just one point, 36 Lion still have an outside chance of qualifying for the final four, but they will have to get a good win against Lobi Stars who currently top Group A with four points from two games.

The second match of the day will be between Sunshine Stars and MFM by 3pm with both matches taking place at the Legacy Pitch, National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.

The Olukoya Boys need at least a draw to qualify for the semi-final while the Owena Whales can afford to rest some of their first-team players having already picked up two victories from the two they have played.
