Legon Cities and Asante Kotoko will start the Betpawa Premier League week 12 at the Sogakope Red Bull Arena on Saturday, November 25, 2023.
After recording a win after five matches over defending champions Medeama Sporting Club, Dr. Ogum and his charges are poised to make it two matches in a row. Legon Cities are currently in poor form and eager to bounce back to winning ways after picking a defeat last weekend against Berekum Chelsea at Golden City Park.
Ahead of the game, Legon Cities has moved from their usual EL Wak stadium to the Red Bull Arena in Sogakope. Asante Kotoko are heading into the game without their captain Danlad Ibrahim and he is been replaced by the Cameroonian Moise Pouaty.
Moreover, nimble-footed Baba Yahaya is been named in the squad after a long time out of the team.
Asante Kotoko are unbeaten in their last three meetings against the Royals. They have won two and drew one. The last time both sides met, the game ended 1-1 with goals from Richard Boadu who recently joined Al Ahly, Libya from Asante Kotoko, and Alex Aso who is with Bibiani Goldstars for Asante Kotoko and Legon Cities respectively.
Asante Kotoko heads into the game as a favorite. They have only lost once in their last five meetings with Legon Cities.
A win will take Legon Cities out of the relegation zone.
