In a highly anticipated encounter during match week 13 of the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League, Karela United is gearing up to host Bechem United at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium this Sunday.
The Pride and Passion lads, currently grappling with 16th place and 12 points, are determined to secure a victory that would propel them out of the relegation zone. On the other side of the pitch, the Hunters sit comfortably at sixth place with 17 points from their initial 12 games.
As the teams prepare for this pivotal clash, Shaibu Ibrahim Tanko’s squad faces the challenge of bouncing back from a recent 1-0 defeat to Nations FC. In contrast, Bechem United, led by Bismark Kobi-Mensah, enters the game with an impressive record of being undefeated in their last six matches, clinching two wins and four draws.
Karela United boasts an unbeaten home record this season but faces the task of converting draws into victories, having won only two of their six home matches and drawing the remaining four. Meanwhile, Bechem United’s away performance in their last six games includes one win, three draws, and two losses.
Adding to the intrigue, the head-to-head history reveals a balanced rivalry, with both Karela United and Bechem United securing two wins each in their last six meetings, while the other two encounters ended in draws.
