Ghana Premier League Match Day 27 Preview: RTU vs Accra Lions



Real Tamale United has made the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium a tough grounds to visit having lost just once at home this season (6W 6D) as well as holding title holders to a hard fought goalless draw and securing a 2-1 surprise win against leaders Asante Kotoko.

Emphasizing more on how hard it is to play against them at home, they are on a 9 games unbeaten run at home and for a team that barely has breathing space from the relegation zone, this tells a lot.

RTU held Elmina Sharks to a 1-1 draw on the road securing a vital point which might have been just enough to put them outside the relegation zone at the time being. Hosting Accra Lions this weekend, they are expected to overturn their first leg defeat to a win should they desire to maintain their status in the Ghanaian top flight league.

League debutants Accra Lions despite their inconsistencies have shown great resilience and are very likely to maintain their top flight league status this season.

The Accra based team would be hoping to return to winning ways after failing to respond to 3 goals scored against them at home by city rivals Accra Hearts of Oak last weekend. With 9 losses away from home this season (2W 2D), a visit to Tamale does not announce an easy win for the lions.

Players to watch: RTU’s Victor Aidoo has found the net twice in two games while Accra Lions’ Fredrick Asante netted twice in 3 games.

Hot Stat: Accra Lions have conceded a red card in each of their last 3 games
