Backing an away win
To be fair, Ashanti Gold have been playing fairly well in recent weeks; as they've lost just once in their last seven games, with four wins and two draws. However, it's worth noting that they haven't done too well against Asante Kotoko in recent encounters between these two; they are without a win in their last four meetings, with just one win in their last eight clashes. Additionally, Asante Kotoko have been by far the best team in the Premier League; they are league leaders, nine points clear at the top of the table. Furthermore, Asante Kotoko have been the best road team in the league, having lost just twice in 14 games away from home. All things considered, we're predicting a win for the league leaders.
Expecting to see goals
These are two of the top scoring teams in the Premier League so far; only Dreams and Asante Kotoko have scored more goals than Ashanti Gold this season. Both teams have been consistent in goal scoring terms; Asante Kotoko found the net in eight of their last nine games, while Ashanti Gold scored 10 times in their last four games alone.
