Enugu Rangers Win 8th NPFL Title | MarvelTvUpdates

Rangers international Football Club of Enugu have been crowned champions of the 2023/2024 Nigerian Premier Football League (NPFL).

This comes after the Flying Antelopes defeated Bendel Insurance 2-0 in Enugu on Sunday.

The win took Rangers to an unassailable 67 points at the summit of the table after their closest rivals Remo Stars and Enyimba lost 2-1 to Sunshine Stars and Sporting Lagos, respectively.

Going into the match-day 37 game with a two-point lead, Fidelis Ilechukwu’s team seized control early against Insurance, with Kenechukwu Agu scoring in the 33rd minute.

Chidiebere Nwobodo extended their lead in the 65th minute, but their title confirmation was nearly postponed to the final day as both Remo and Enyimba equalized after initially trailing in their respective games.

A draw for Remo would have kept their title hopes alive, but two late goals dashed their chances.

This will be Rangers’ first league title since 2016 and their eighth NPFL title in total.

The triumph also automatically guarantees them a place in the CAF Champions League next season.
