Two Ghana Premier League title hopefuls, Medeama SC and Dreams FC will lock horns in Sunday at the Akoon Park Tarkwa.
This GPL Match Week 19 fixture presents an opportunity for both sides to get back on track in their title pursuit after recording disappointing results the previous match week.
Medeama come into this game on the back of a hurting away defeat to current league leaders Great Olympics.
The Mauves and Yellow are unbeaten at home this campaign, winning 6 and drawing 3 of their 9 matches played. They have recorded 5 straight wins at home with the last 3 happening with clean sheets.
Medeama SC, currently on 27 points and occupying the 6th spot on the league log will traget climbing into the Top 4 with a win today, following Hearts of Oak’s defeat to AshantiGold on Saturday.
They face Dreams FC, who failed to make it count last week at home when they surprisingly drew with relegation battling Inter Allies.
The Still Believe could only manage a 1-1 draw and will need to fetch a point in Sunday’s encounter to keep alive their title aspirations.
After an impressive run of 8 games without defeat, Dreams FC have stuttered in their last 4 games, winning just once while losing 2.
That means they’ve picked just 4 points from the last 12 available and certainly Coach Vladislav Viric will need to find a way to halt this recent patchy form.
Against, Medeama, Dreams FC face an opponent they’ve struggled against on the road. In 2 away games, the Still Believe have been beaten, and they will need to do more to get something out of this game.
To stand a chance of also entering the Top 4, Dreams need to do the unthinkable by inflicting on Medeama their first home defeat of the season, which will also be their first away win at Tarkwa against their opponent.
The Match takes places at the Akoon Park, on Sunday at 3pm GMT.
