KING FAISAL VS GREAT OLYMPICS

There is all to play for in this match week 31 fixture, as King Faisal hosts the “Dade boys” Great Olympics. King Faisal’s survival hopes hung dangerously on this fixture as they are only 3 points away from the relegation zone. Their form in the second round of the league has been abysmal, as they played 8 games without a win, picking only 2 points in the process. Their first win after 8 league games came in match week 29, when they beat fellow relegation threatened team, Eleven Wonders 1 nil. They need to pick up all three points from this game if they have any intention of staying in the league.

Great Olympics’ hopes of finishing in the top 4, seem to be slipping away as they have won only 1 game out of their last 6. Coach Annor Walker (Also doubling as Black Stars ‘B’ Coach) knows a loss can make them drop to 11th place on the table. Olympics would want to take advantage of King Faisal’s poor run of form to get something from this game.

BEREKUM CHELSEA VS ELMINA SHARKS

The Golden City Park will come alive once again as the Ghana Premier League continues. The Bibires, under new coach Christopher Ennin, shocked leaders Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium in their last game by winning 1 nil with 10 men in their match week 30 fixture. The team is already fired up after that win against Kotoko as they host rock-bottom Elmina Sharks. Chelsea have lost only once at home this season but will not joke with this Sharks team as they are a very stubborn side to beat despite their position on the table.

Sharks’ stay in the league seems to be over with just 4 games to end the season. They are rock-bottom and 12 points away from safety. A loss will confirm their relegation to the lower tier. Coach Bernard Frans is currently handling the team after the departure of substantive coach Kobina Amissah. They have not won a game in their last six fixtures.

LEGON CITIES VS GOLD STARS

For Legon Cities, the renaissance continues. The Accra-based side is taking big strides to complete the season in style, firmly ensconced in the top half of the standings. They are now seventh in the league, four points behind fourth-placed Accra Heart of Oak, and may be aiming for a Top-4 finish by the season’s end. In any case, finishing in the top half of the league will be a harbinger of things to come for Legon Cities in the next season. When they play Bibiani Gold Stars at home, their fans will be hoping for a win to continue their fine form in the league.

This season, the new lads, Bibiani Gold Stars, have been punching above their weight. They have clearly achieved their first goal of the season, which was to escape relegation. Whatever happens in the next few games will provide an opportunity for fringe players to shine while also allowing some young players to break into the lineup. The Golden Boys have only three points from their past two league games, averaging a win every other game.

MEDEAMA SC VS KOTOKO

The topliner for the weekend take us to Tarkwa, as the pride of the west, Medeama host league leaders on match day 31. Medeama are in second place with a determined squad, hoping to cut the lead of the leader to just 3 points with a win. Their last 5 games have been quite encouraging with 3 wins and 2 draws. Theophilus Anorba has rallied his charges, encouraging them with the possibility of annexing the trophy if their opponents slip up in the next set of fixtures.

Fabulous Asante Kotoko have not been themselves in the past couple of games, registering only one win in their last 5 games. Such form makes for worrying reading for the fans of the giant club. The last fixture they would have wanted, with such form, is one against a troublesome Medeama side, away from home. The first leg was a hard-fought win, with Cameroonian Georges Mfuege displaying his marvelous quality. Kotoko have always bounced back away from home whenever they lost and had to play away. A real test of their credentials awaits them in Tarkwa.

HEARTS OF OAK VS KARELA UNITED

Hearts of Oak will honor this fixture after being given the green light to participate in association football. The Phobians were medically advised to self-isolate by the Ghana Health Service after some players and technical handlers of the team got infected with some strange respiratory condition. This made them miss their match week 30 fixture against Eleven Wonders, which has been rescheduled to another date. Hearts are currently 9 points behind leaders Kotoko and suddenly their fans have belief they might get their hands on the title again considering the inconsistent form of the current leaders. Hearts haven’t lost in their last 5 games and have qualified for the MTN FA Cup as well. Coach Boadu believes the title race is not over yet.

Karela will be seeking to do a double over Hearts this season as the first-round fixture ended 1 nil in their favor. They’ve managed to win two away fixtures and will want to take a huge chance to equal the points with Hearts on the table and perhaps stop them in their title chase ambition.
