While only Osun, Kwara and Abuja have chances to go through in Group A, all the Group B sides are capable of making it through to the semi-final

Group A

Osun vs. Yobe

Two draws in their two opening encounters at the Copa Coca-Cola National Finals means Progress Comprehensive High School, Osun will be needing nothing less a win over Government Junior Secondary School, Yobe and a favourable result in the other Group A encounter.

For their Wednesday oppositions, Yobe, they got to the end of the road after they suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Abuja, thus, the match is Osun's to lose.


Kwara vs. FCT

Muslim Community Secondary School, Kwara and Fosla Academy, Abuja will do battle in the second game of Group A as a result could change the complexion of everything for both sides, tied on four points.

A loss for either side and a win for Osun in the other game would be disastrous. So, this promises to be an interesting matchup between the leading sides of the first group.


Group B

Kano vs. Rivers

A loss on the second day of the Copa Coca-Cola National Finals has turned both Government Junior Secondary School, Gwale, Kano and Community Secondary School, Amadi-Ama, Rivers to outsiders to progress to the quarterfinals of the competition.

With both sides tied with a point apiece, a win for either of them, plus a favourable result in the tie between Imo and Katsina would make possible qualification to the next round.
