King Faisal have suffered a 2-0 defeat to Karela United this afternoon after an unimpressive showing at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

The Kumasi-based club commenced the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season with consistent fine displays.

However, after losing form in the last few matches, the team is now gradually losing the chance to eventually emerge as champions of the Ghanaian top-flight league.

Today, King Faisal had the chance to close the gap on league leader Asante Kotoko when the team faced off with Karela United.

Unfortunately for the Inshallah boys, they were overpowered by the opponent. The visitors scored twice through Umar Bashir this afternoon to cruise to an important 2-0 win at the end of the 90 minutes.

The win has pushed Karela United to 8th on the Ghana Premier League table with King Faisal now three points behind Asante Kotoko. The Porcupine Warriors also have two outstanding matches and could stretch the gap at the top if the team picks maximum points from the games.
