GPL Match Preview and Prediction: Kotoko vs Medeama
It is the top-of-the-table clash between Asante Kotoko and Medeama SC at the Obuasi Ley Clay Sports Stadium. The duo clubs have their eye set on the most coveted prize: the Ghana Premier League 2020-21 season league.
The record holders of the league are coming into this fixture, on the back of drawing goalless with Great Olympics in Accra, and have enjoyed an upturn in form notching 11 from 15 points since the appointment of Mariano Barreto.
This week Life Patron of the club, Otumfour Osei Tutu II, released a significant amount of money to settle arrears of old players, new players, auxiliary staff, which will come as a big boost in camp heading into a tough duel against the Tarkwa based club.
Under the tutelage of Yaw Preko and Acheampong, Medeama SC has climbed up the ladder, currently occupying the 3rd position on the log with 33 points.
Their ability to have picked 10 from 15 points in the last five games makes them tough opponents for Kotoko to crack.
The absence of poster boy, Justice Blay will be deeply felt but the depth in quality at Yaw Preko’s disposal should aid him to present a formidable team that should be able to shred the Kumasi Galacticos into shreds.
In twenty-seven (27) meetings that the pair have met, the Reds have won twelve (12) whiles the other six (6) have ended in favor of Mauve and Yellow side with the others ending in draws.
Prediction: Kotoko 2-1 Medeama SC
