Coach of Rangers International FC Imama Amapakabo is expecting a very difficult game against Rivers United in a Nigeria Professional Football League match day 12 fixture.

The reigning champions will be guests to United in Port Harcourt on Sunday. Both teams are playing in the CAF Champions League.

Amapakabo expects the game to live up to the billing as the two highly-rated sides battle for crucial points to enhance their respective positions on the NPFL log.

“It will certainly be an exciting game and will act as a good prelude to both club’s respective Caf Champions League matches (next weekend).

“We know that Rivers United is a team that has done well for itself and they have some wonderful individual players that are capable of hurting you if you don’t concentrate all through the game.

“We also possess players who are capable of giving them worries.

“The game will be worth the money of the paying public as it will be a very entertaining game,” Imama told SuperSport.

The tie is one of the two big encounters this weekend, with the other being the game between two former champions Kano Pillars and Enyimba.
