Berekum Chelsea is eager to recover from their recent defeat to Karela United as they prepare to host league leaders Accra Lions at the Golden City Park on Friday.
The Berekum-based club initiated the season with a promising 2-0 victory against Bibiani Goldstars and boasts a strong home record.
However, they will face a resilient Accra Lions side that appears well-organized, having held champions Medeama SC in Tarkwa before securing a victory over Legon Cities in the Accra derby in Sogakope.
Both teams have managed to retain some key players from the previous season, with goalkeeper Gregory Obeng Sekyere and forward Stephen Amankona expected to play pivotal roles in the current campaign.
On the other hand, Accra Lions relies on talents like Abass Samari, who received the “discovery of the year” award at the Ghana Football Awards, and captain Dominic Nsobila as the central figures of their squad.
Berekum Chelsea and Accra Lions have faced each other four times in the Ghana Premier League, with both teams securing two wins each. However, Lions have yet to earn a point in Berekum against Chelsea.
Despite sitting at the top of the table after two games, the match in Berekum promises to be a challenging test for the visiting team.
