The 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League season is gradually gaining momentum and Matchday 2 served us with some quality football and an indication of what the season holds.
With the exception of Accra Hearts of Oak and Ashanti Gold who are yet to play, all 7 games in the matchday have been played with the likes of Accra Great Olympics, Techiman Eleven Wonders and others winning.
We, therefore, take a look at the major talking points from Match week 2 of the 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League season.
Major talking points from Ghana Premier League match week
Eleven wonders could be the dark horse
They might not have been tipped to be among the contenders for the league title but Techiman Eleven Wonders could play a vital role in deciding who wins the Ghana Premier League trophy.
In their first game of the season, they battered Kumasi Asante Kotoko in the first half and could have taken all three points if not for their poor showing in front of goal. Fortunately, they made up for it as they won 2-0 in their second game. They are the dark horse for the season.
Kotoko giving away leads
For the second consecutive time, Kumasi Asante Kotoko gave away a vital lead and settled for a draw instead of picking all three points.
It is certainly a worrying sign for a team that is preparing to engage in this season’s African Club Championship. Coach Maxwell Konadu needs to fix things up quickly or the team will end up exiting the championship very early.
Legon cities not there yet
Legon Cities were one of the favourites to win this season’s competition after investing heavily in bringing the likes of Asamoah Gyan to the club. But things have not gone as expected and they have picked just a point out of a possible six.
It has seen Goran Barjaktarevic being sacked as head coach and hopefully, that will generate some good results to reward the investment the club is making.
