Can Oly Surprise Liberty?
After posting a 2-1 win over Kessben in their outstanding mid-week match at the Ohene Djan Stadium, wonder club Accra Great Olympics will trek to the Carl Reindorf Park in Dansoman tomorrow to play as guests of Liberty Professionals in a match expected to be full of fireworks.
The Dade boys are eager to climb up to a respectable place in the league at the end of the season and will have revenge on their mind as they go into the game. Olympics have vowed to keep their fine mid-week form and would pin their host to the wall at their own back yard in order to secure victory.
Currently second on the league table and at the heels of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Liberty have never been easy customers for Olympics, and with their eyes firmly fixed on the league title and a Champions League ticket, they will be going all out for the three maximum points at home.
The Ohene Djan Stadium will be the centre of yet another revenge mission, this time on the part of Accra Hearts Oak when they welcome Zaytuna United.
Both teams boast of good home records, but have struggled to find their footing away. Hearts lost the first round tie at the same venue but with their unpredictable performance, one question on the lips on the club’s faithfuls is whether the defending league champions would be able to keep their invincible home record intact.
Another cracker expected to be sold to soccer fans in and around Swedru will be the clash between homesters Gamba All Blacks and Sekondi Hasaacas. Matches between the two sides have produced some fine football; tomorrow’s game will be no exception.
Real Tamale United after punching down Swedru All Blacks at home will visit the Berekum Golden City Park to play as guests of Berekum Arsenal; Kessben F/C will stay at the Anane Boateng stadium to oblige Tema Real Sportive while their city rivals Tema Youth will host giant killers Wa All Stars.
The match between Kotoko and Heart of Lions has been postponed due to Kotoko’s Champions League campaign against Nigeria club Dolphins, while that of Ashantigold and King Faisal is fixed for next Wednesday.
