Yesterday, Remo Stars of Ikenne were on the receiving end of a thrashing in match day four of Nigeria’s Premier Football League (NPFL). Bendel Insurance of Benin put on a masterful display of football to bring the score line to an emphatic 6-0.
Remo Stars were unable to match the speed and agility of the Bendel Insurance players, with the latter controlling the match from the first whistle. Bendel Insurance were able to score four goals in the first half and two more in the second to secure their victory.
The result left the Remo Stars players stunned and the coach was visibly disappointed with the result. He acknowledged that his side had been taught a harsh lesson by Bendel Insurance and said that his team had been outplayed in every department.
The result has left the Remo Stars in a precarious position in the NPFL standings, as they now sit in the relegation zone with just one win in four matches. They will need to put on a much improved performance in their next match if they are to avoid the drop.
The result demonstrates the strength of Bendel Insurance in the NPFL and shows that they should not be underestimated. They are currently top of the table and will be looking to extend their lead with more wins in the coming weeks.
For Remo Stars, the result is a wake up call. They will need to regroup and put in a much improved performance in their next match if they are to have any chance of avoiding the drop.
