The Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin will on Wednesday May 13 host two clubs in different Nigerian Leagues as both clubs seek the round of 32 ticket of the 2015 Federation Cup. 

Nigeria National League (NNL) side, Julius Atete FC claimed to be prepared for the 2015 Federation Cup round of 64 battle against Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Sunshine Stars of Akure.

Former Sunshine Stars player, Musa Mohammed has said confidently that J. Atete FC has a better chance move into the next round at the expense of the NPFL table toppers, Sunshine stars. 

"We've been preparing for the competition for a while, we've played in series of test matches and I know we are ready for the match later today. As much as I hope for a favourable result in the Federation Cup, I won't celebrate if I score against them," Mohammed told

Inform Sunshine Stars, who are sitting at top of the NPFL log have a better chance to secure the round of 32 ticket but upset is the name of the game. The Federation Cup has already seen an upset this season as the 2013 finalists, Warri Wolves, didn't make it to the State Finals.
