The Nigeria Professional Football league up until yesterday was among the few leagues in the world that is yet to be suspended. This is because there have been just little cases of the covid-19 virus in the country. But in the past week, we have seen the number of confirmed and suspected cases of the coronavirus rise to 7 and the Nigeria Professional Football League would be the latest League in the World to be suspended.

After the national sports festival was suspended by the President on Tuesday, yesterday after the midweek fixtures the League Management Commission announced that the league would be suspended for 4 weeks in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. Remember that other Africans leagues like South Africa, Ghana and Zambia have been suspended as well.

Sporting News companies, Football teams and other sporting influencers have little or no content to offer this period. Most of them resort to throwback videos, player comparison and arguments on whether leagues across the world should be cancelled or finished.

Rangers International of Enugu seems to have found their rhythm after moving up to 4th  on the log. They claimed a 3-2 away win to Dakkada.

Enyimba of Aba are now the title favourite despite the fact they are 5th on the log. They have 5 outstanding matches because of their continental engagement earlier in the season. 13 points away from league leaders Plateau united and should they win their 5 games, they would be at the summit of the log.

Adamawa United are still the last team on the log with 20 points from 25 games. They have been on a poor run of form after managing just 1 win and 4 defeats in their last 5 matches.

We would all have to wait till the league resumes to continue to enjoy the excitement that the NPFL brings. In the meantime, teams can train more, re-strategize and enjoy the midseason break while being careful and watching their health.

Who do you think would win the NPFL this season and which teams would be relegated??
