The much anticipated clash between rivals AshGold and Kotoko is set to take place on Sunday 25th of February 2017 at the Betway branded Len-Clay Stadium in Obuasi.

Asante-Kotoko-eliminates-AK-Shion-on-penalties-in-MTN-FA-CupAfter an up-and-down start including one win, one defeat and a draw, AshGold will be looking to snatch victory in their upcoming game, giving their log status a much needed surge, especially considering how closely it will put them to the top of the league.

Coach Bashiru Hayford has not lost to his former club in their last two meetings, winning one and drawing the other. On the penultimate round of last season, it was an absolute goal fest at the Len Clay stadium as the fixture produced an 8-goal thriller.

It’s been six years since Asante Kotoko has won in Obuasi, losing all games played there by no less than two goals. This bodes well for AshGold because despite their home record, the two teams are statistically equal, having both won two of their last 5 premier league meetings with the other ending in a draw.

Betway Ghana, sponsors of the Aboakese team, are staunchly behind them this season displaying unflinching support for them at every home game. The steadily growing online and mobile sports betting operator is committed to heightening the football experience for fans and GPL lovers by providing them with numerous betting offers on both the local league and international matches.

Betway will also be setting up activation stands at the Len-Clay Stadium for the match to add a little more panache and excitement to the thrilling atmosphere. Fans will have the chance to win some amazing prizes and branded souvenirs.

All in all, fans can expect an exciting match. Especially as Hans Kwoffie’s skill will be on display once more, having directly been involved in all of AshGold’s four goals this season, scoring three of them and assisting in one.
