The Yusifs

GPL: Hasaacas v. Techiman City PREVIEW

Rock-bottom Hasaacas will welcome league new boys, Techiman City, to the Essipon stadium on match day two of the on-going Ghana Premier League.

Techiman City has enjoyed a bright start to the league with a defeat to former league champions, Berekum Chelsea, on match day one, and bagged their first three points of the season.

The partying and excitement will have to cease as they are facing a more wounded Hasaacas side, who lost by a heaviest margin, 3-0 to Wa All Stars.

With Techiman City playing their first ever Premier League, the two sides will be meeting for the first time in the Ghana Premier League.

The Real Citizens are carrying on with their impressive performance from the division one to the elite division – Won twenty (20), drawn three (3) and lost five (5) matches; topping zone 1 with 63 points.

Since 2005, the Doo Boys have played a total of seven (7) matches on match day two. They have won two (2), drawn three (3) and lost two (2), scored ten (10) and conceded ten (10) as well.

In their last fifteen (15) home games, they have lost only one (0-1 defeat to Kotoko last season), won ten (10) and drawn four (4).

Hasaacas last  five (5) matches at home have seen 2D, 2W and 1L. Overall, they have won two (2) and lost three (3) of their last five matches.

Again, they have kept only two clean sheet in five matches played at home. Seems they are susceptible at conceding at home.

Luckily for us, the match will be live on SuperSport TV and other local television network at 3:15 pm in the afternoon. The two will be entertaining us to some quality and fine tune of football.

It will be a battle of big brains – ‘The Yusifs’ – at the touch line, with Yusif Bassigi steering affairs for the home side whiles Yusif Abubakar defends the other end for Techiman City.
