Hosts to take the win
Ashanti Gold have enjoyed some good form recently, they lost just once in their last six games, with four wins and a draw. It's worth noting that Ashanti Gold's last four losses came on the road; they've been pretty solid at home, having won all of their last four home games. On the other hand, Accra Lions have mostly struggled away from home this season; they've played 15 road games so far, and lost 10 of them, with just three wins and two draws. All things considered, we're making the prediction that Ashanti Gold will take all three points from this match.
Goals will be hard to come by
Accra Lions have been the lowest scoring team in the Premier League this season; they've scored just 20 goals in 30 league games so far. As a matter of fact, Accra Lions blanked in three of their last five games; they managed just two goals in that five game stretch. It's also fair to point out that Accra Lions have been solid defensively in recent weeks; they did not concede a single goal in their last three games, and they've kept five clean sheets in their last seven games. Because of this, Accra Lions' games tend to be really low-scoring games; 11 of their last 13 games went below the 2.5 goal mark, with nine of those games going under 1.5. On that note we don't think there will be up to two goals scored in this match.
