The Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) title race remains wide open as the season enters matchday 36, live on StarTimes Beta Sports channel 244. While Enugu Rangers maintain their lead at the top, they face a challenging away game against Shooting Stars on June 12th at the Lekan Salami Stadium. A victory in this match is crucial for Enugu Rangers to solidify their position and secure the coveted N150 million prize money.

The title race is still open for Enyimba and Remo Stars, with sixty points and fifty-nine points respectively. The battle for first, second, and third place, which guarantees continental club campaign qualification, is intensifying. Nothing was decided Sunday night, and league-topping Rangers must gird their loins to battle Shooting Stars on June 12. Enugu Rangers need not lose any of their remaining three games to lift the title and coast home with the N150 million prize money. The match will air live on StarTimes Beta Sports Channel 244 at 5:30 pm.

Both Remo Stars and Shooting Stars lost their shine last weekend in away games and need to recoup midweek to stay in the hunt. "This league has a nail-biting edge, and as the final stretch sharpens at both the top and bottom echelons, it is fair to say that our league is gingerly finding its true groove, and fans can't wait to toast to their champion," veteran Sports analyst Mitchel Obi said.

On Wednesday, Remo Stars will face a critical match against Heartland, a team fighting desperately to avoid relegation. Enyimba also faces a relegation-threatened opponent in Bayelsa United, making their clash equally crucial.

As the season reaches its climax, the NPFL is witnessing a thrilling title race with multiple teams vying for glory. The league's growing popularity is evident in the fervent support from fans across the country, who eagerly await the crowning of their champion.

With the stakes higher than ever, the upcoming midweek fixtures promise to deliver thrilling action and unexpected twists. Fans can expect a nail-biting finish to the season as teams battle for every point to secure their desired positions in the league table. NPFL matches air live on StarTimes Beta Sports Channel 244.
