Karela United host Aduana Stars in a Ghana Premier League Match Week 17 clash on Saturday.
The Match at Nzema Ayinase CAM Park see the two teams approach the game with different ambitions.
League leaders Karela United enter the encounter with the mindset of securing maximum points to aid their quest for the ultimate.
The home side are still nursing wounds of a shocking 2-0 defeat at the CAM Park to Asante Kotoko. They have since inflicted same damage on Liberty Professionals in their last game.
In Aduana Stars, Karela face an opponent enduring an unimpressive season. The Ogya Lads have blown hot and cold this season that it’s difficult to predict them.
With their home form looking solid, their away form continues to serve as a worry to fans and followers of the two time league winners.
In their last 3 away games, Aduana have managed just a point which is disappointing per their standards.
Take away a victory against Kotoko in Accra and Aduana have a record of 3 Defeats and 1 draw in their last 5 away games.
The statistics give Karela United hope while it presents a grim reading for Aduana Stars.
New Coach Asare Bediako who replaced Paa Kwesi Fabin this week will hope to start well, but knows definitely the odds are against his side.
Expect a dominant Karela side who will bank their hopes on topscorer Diawisie Taylor to run affairs in front of goal. The league joint topscorer will be keen to add to his talky of 10 and will sense a fine opportunity against an Aduana Stars defense who have been leaky on the road.
Aduana Stars’ state of mind is another factor that could play to Karela’s advantage.
The club has been in the news following the arrest and subsequent prosecution of its defender Farouk Adams. The center half is currently under investigation for reckless driving which led to the death of a police officer. He has been remanded in police custody for two weeks and the magnitude of this matter is likely to weigh heavy on the minds of his teammates.
All the same, expect an exciting with the home team the huge favorite for this one.
