Match Preview: Medeama vs Bechem United; Bechem to stun Medeam at home?
Tarkwa based Medeama are yet to lose a game at home this season in the ongoing Ghana Premier League season, topsides Hearts and Kotoko have even fallen to their knees in their recent visits to the Akoon Community Park, the home venue of the Mauve and Yellow side. But their recent loss at the hands of former Premier League winners will remain fresh in their minds as they take on Bechem United in a midweek fixture.
This season, Samuel Boadu boys, have so far given it their best shot at the league even though there are equally talented sides but their current position third (3rd) is no fluke, as they have played so well anytime they take to the pitch. One man that needs a pat on the back, Prince Opoku Agyemang, has been in blistering form for the Tarwka outfit scoring five goals in seven games.
Their opponents Bechem United, are the first side to beat “Giant Slayers”, Berekum Chelsea this season, which is an immense achievement by all standards after seven rounds of games in the league. The away side currently occupies the fourth (4th) spot with 13 points the same as Medeama who have a better goal advantage. One plus is their ability to play solidly and move in numbers when attacking which will be a serious headache for any porous side they meet in the league.
These two promising setups in the ongoing Ghana Premier League have played each other in the past seasons, fifteen (15) times, Medeama(5) whiles Bechem United have won six (6) of the duels with two (2) ending in a stalemate.
The pair are major contenders for the league on any day. The home side, Medeama will knick a win but it won’t come on an easy turf against Bechem United who are a very difficult side to play though they are not the best of travelers.
Medeama SC 2 – 1
