This weekend marks the start of matchday three of the league season after the first two rounds of games.

Games are slated to be played on the matchday from Friday, September 23, through Monday, September 26, 2022.

The match between Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak will be the biggest event of all.

This Sunday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, there will be the first Super Clash of the new season.

Since the start of the 2022–23 football season, the Porcupine Warriors club has been absent from all league games.


This is as a result of the team's participation in the CAF Champions League group stage.

Unfortunately, after losing against RC Kadiogo, the Kumasi-based team was eliminated from the competition.

Asante Kotoko is currently focusing on the Ghana Premier League after being eliminated from the CAF Champions League.

The reds' opening league game will take place this weekend when they take on longtime rivals Hearts of Oak.

The Phobians traveled to Dormaa to face Aduana Stars to kick off the new campaign.


The Phobians lost by a goal to nil and took no points back to Accra at the conclusion of a very difficult game.

Hearst of Oak then hosted Great Olympics to the Accra Sports Stadium on matchday 2 as a result.

Despite giving their everything, the team could only manage a tie and one point.

Hearts of Oak's next matchup is the first Super Clash of the next league season against longtime rivals Asante Kotoko.

Player to Watch:      

Gladson Awako – In the absence of Hearts of Oak poster boy Daniel Afriyie Barnieh who has been tormenting the Porcupine Warriors, Gladson Awako could be the main man for the Phobians this weekend.

The former Olympian was in excellent form the weekend before as Hearts of Oak overcame a deficit to tie the Dade Boys at 1-1. He will also be crucial this weekend.

Potential starting eleven (Asante Kotoko)


Danlad Ibrahim (G), Christopher Nettey, Yussif Mubarik, Sherif Mohammed, John Tedeku, Richard Boadu (C), Enoch Morrison, Isaac Oppong, Georges Mfegue, Samuel Boateng, Steven Mukwala.

Starting eleven likely to be used: Hearts of Oak

Richard Attah (G), Samuel Inkoom, Dennis Korsah, Mohammed Alhassan, Konadu Yiadom, Eric Esso, Daniel Kodie, Gladson Awako, Yassan Outching, Isaac Mensah, Junior Kaaba.

Expected score line:

From the games they have played in the CAF Champions League, Asante Kotoko has appeared to be a weak team.

The team will participate in the derby and perform well, but gaining a point will be challenging. If Samuel Boadu chooses the appropriate strikers for the match in Afriyie Barnieh's absence, a 2-0 victory for Hearts of Oak appears to be in the cards.

Match specifics:

On September 25, 2022, the first Super Clash of the year will be held. Starting at 15:00 GMT, the match at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium will begin.
