Matchday 3 will see the most anticipated of them all, three-time winners of the men’s division, Saints take on bitter rivals Dannaz FC in the final game of the day.
Other matches slated for the day will see current leaders and the ALATSociaLiga in-form team of the moment, 96 Champions face fellow debutants Black Haus in the second game of the day.
Ladies Cedars, Dannaz Ladies battle Raineri Ladies in the Women’s Liga before the debutante’s derby between the unbeaten duo of Atlantic Business and Egba City takes centre stage.
Looking for their first win since last season, All Black take on the male Herd, Alimosho in what’s expected to be an important game for either side.
There you have it, all the fixtures for this SUPER SATURDAY, but let’s give you more insights about the two (2) biggest matches of the day.
Citizens vs Raineri: Proud Citizen to end poor run against the Ghosts?
Both teams are meeting for the fourth time in the ALATSociaLiga and we expect an explosive encounter as well.
The previous three matches, Raineri remain unbeaten against the Citizens after a draw and two wins, back-to-back wins.
After two draws in the opening two matches this season, the Citizens go into this one hoping to go a step better to register their first win of the season.
But the key question for Adedoyin Ajibijke and his boys is, can they put a stop to their poor against the Ghosts?
For Raineri, they would be hoping to bounce back from that disappointment against 96 Champions the last time and will be buoyed by a positive head-to-head record against their Saturday opponents.
The last time encounter between the Citizens and Raineri ended 2-1 in favour of the Ghosts, who were inspired by legendary striker Oliseh Esumeh.
Saints Vs Dannaz Football: Bitter Rivals Meet Again In Liga Clasico
The final game of matchday 3 will see the biggest of the game as defending champions Saints FC face bitter rivals, Dannaz Football.
This fixture is clearly the legitimate “El-Clasico” in the exciting ALATSociaLiga, with both clubs the only teams to have ever won the title.
When these two takes to the pitch on Saturday, it would be for the fifth time, the previous four have seen the Cedars dominate with three wins.
Both Champions enter into this tie in very poor and identical form, one defeat and draw apiece in their opening two matches this season.
Saints drew 2-2 in their opening match before falling to a 1-0 defeat in the second, while the Cedars lost 3-1 to 96 Champions and drew 0-0 with Citizens.
The teams will be looking to kick-start their seasons this Saturday, but which of the teams will take all three points?
When both clubs last met, it was the final of last season, a highly contested season four (4) finale that saw the Saints emerge champions after a 4-2 penalty win.
