Blue group strugglers, Team VGC Lions will be entertaining fellow strugglers, Team Optiwebb at the VGC Club Lekki this weekend in their fifth and final group match of the 2017 edition of the NCC Tennis League.
Both teams are simply going to be playing for pride because this match is very much inconsequential, due to the impossibility for both teams to advance beyond the group stages.
Both Team VGC Lions and Team Optiwebb have had similar fortunes this campaign with the later only above the former due to games differential.
Team VGC Lions are currently on a 3-game losing streak, having not won any match since securing a victory over rock bottom Team Oluyole in their first match of the competition.
Just like Team VGC Lions, Team Optiwebb have not been able to record any victory asides against the Blue Group whooping boys Team Oluyole but they were quite impressive against Team Muller, although they eventually lost the series of matches 5-2.
A victory for either team will secure a 4th placed finish.
The matches will go down at the VGC Club in Lekki, Lagos from Saturday October 28rd – Sunday September 29th.
I foresee Team Optiwebb picking their first win away from home. It would be a convincingly one for me, maybe 6-1.
