1 month ago

The betPawa Premier will continue this weekend with a total number of thirty-six games already played with sixty goals recorded after four Match days.

Dreams FC who suffered their first home defeat of the season to Accra Lions last weekend, will host Tamale City at the theatre of Dreams on Friday. The newly promoted side have lost three games in the league and are yet to pick a win having picked up just a draw after four match days.

They scored their first goal of the season from a spot kick in the derby against Real Tamale United on Monday. Dreams FC have lost two consecutive games without scoring a goal following a 2-0 loss to Karela United in week three and the defeat to Accra Lions on Sunday.

The match is scheduled for 3pm kick off at the theatre of Dreams at Dawu on Friday, November 4, 2022 and broadcast live on StarTimes Adepa channel 247.

On Saturday, Accra Lions will be hosting Nsoatreman FC at the Accra Sports Stadium. For the first time in history, Accra Lions have picked three consecutive wins in the League and are second in the league whiles the new boys are enjoying some good form in the top tier with a 3-0 win against Karela United in week three. The newly promoted side have picked just one point in their two away matches after losing one and drawing one.

In Cape Coast - Kotoku Royals Rush FC will battle Accra Hearts of Oak at the Cape Coast Stadium on Saturday. The phobians won their last game 2-1 against Bibiani Gold Stars – to record their first win of the season after four games – lost one and drawn one. Hearts of Oak managed to pick a draw against rivals Asante Kotoko in their last away game at the Baba Yara Sports stadium. But the trip to Dorma is one to forget as they fell to a Bright Adjei strike to lose 1-0 to Aduana FC. Kotoku Royals on the other hand lost their week four game to Bechem United at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park but seem to do well at home as they have yet to lose in their two Premier League outings at the Cape Coast stadium.

League leaders Aduana FC will host Legon Cities at Nana Agyemang Badu I park on Sunday. The Ogya boys drew their last home game against Samartex and have kept only one clean sheet (home) in their four premier league games. Aduana FC have also won three games so far and boast of the most wins in the betPawa Premier League. Legon Cities did not start the season well after their opening day home defeat to Medeama SC but have recovered very well to pick 7 points from a possible 10. The Royals defeated Tamale City and Real Tamale United to get their season back on track but were stopped in their tracks by Berekum Chelsea on Sunday. Legon Cities have managed two away wins with two goals and are yet to concede a goal on the road.

Berekum Chelsea will play Real Tamale United at the Golden City Park this season. Chelsea are yet to lose a game with two wins and two draws in four round of matches. They have also managed to win all their home games this season but the last time Chelsea hosted Real Tamale United at the Golden City Park David Abagna Sandan’s goal was enough for the Tamale lads to grab the three points. Real Tamale United have played two away games this season and have lost one and drawn one but have managed to score in both away games.

Bibiani Gold Stars are the favourites going into their match against strugglers King Faisal at DUN’S Park. Gold Stars have managed just a win at home this season and have lost three games whiles King Faisal holds the longest winless run in the League (4). The Insah Allah lads are also yet to score on the road this season.

Elsewhere - Karela United welcome Bechem United to the Crosby Awuah Memorial Park on Sunday. Karela United are yet to concede a goal at home this season in two games whiles Bechem United have lost their first two away games this season.

Champions Asante Kotoko will host new boys Samartex FC at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday. The newly promoted side have drawn all their four games in the betPawa Premier League. Asante Kotoko have won all their home games this season scoring five goals and conceded once at home.

The matches will be rounded up on Monday when Accra Great Olympics take on Medeama SC at the Accra Sports stadium. Medeama SC have lost their last two games in the league with an away record of one win against Legon Cities and a loss against Berekum Chelsea. The Dade boys have recorded back-to-back victories at home this season against Bechem United and King Faisal.
