League new boys, MFM FC of Lagos, will take on Rivers United at Agege Stadium.
The Olukoya Boys shocked Nasarawa United 2-1 in Makurdi in their debut game in the top flight at the weekend and will hope to make a further statement by securing another win against the Pride of Benue who beat league champions Enyimba courtesy of a Frederick Obomate free-kick in their opening fixture.
