The Obafemi Awolowo Stadium, formerly Liberty Stadium, Ibadan, Oyo State, will come alive again this weekend when Shooting Stars play host to Sunshine Stars in one of the Nigeria Premier League Week Eight fixtures.
The home side, led by Coach Festus Allen, will be under pressure to pick the maximum points at stake in view of their poor performance in recent matches.
Apparently aware of the expectation of the fans, Allen said his team will shoot down the visitors.
He said: “Sunshine Stars were the runners up last season. I have watched them play in Ijebu-Ode and certainly I have my game plan to tackle them.
“It is a must win match for us after strings of not too impressive results as we need to put smiles back on the faces of our fans.’
Sunshine Stars’ last visit to Ibadan ended in a 2-1 defeat for the Akure side while they won the return leg 1-0 in Ijebu-Ode from a penalty awarded just inside 10 minutes of the match.
Shooting Stars have scored just three times in the six games played so far this season while they have conceded four goals.
No doubt it will be a massive game on Saturday at the famous Obafemi Awolowo Stadium.
