2022/23 Ghana Premier League Week 19: Asante Kotoko v Bechem United preview

Published on: 28 February 2023

The 2022/23 Ghana Premier League season will continue in midweek with some exciting fixtures in Week 19.

There were no league games last weekend to pave way for the MTN FA Cup Round of 16.

In midweek, all 18 participating clubs are scheduled to be in action at the various match venues.

On Wednesday, March 1, Asante Kotoko will face off with Bechem United in Kumasi.


The host, Asante Kotoko since the start of the season have been fighting to defend the Ghana Premier League title won last season.

Unfortunately, things have not been going well for the team. In the last five matches of Asante Kotoko, the team has lost two matches, won two, and drawn the other game.

The opponent in midweek, Bechem United have amassed more points than the reds this season.

The Hunters have three victories, one defeat, and one draw from the last five games in the league.

Predicted scoreline:

While Asante Kotoko are hoping to return to winning ways, the team must tread cautiously to avoid a second defeat to Bechem United this season.

The Hunters beat the Reds 2-0 in the first league meeting in the first round.

In the buildup to this game, both teams have prepared well and should be involved in a cagey contest. Although it will be tough, the home team should be able to secure a narrow win.

Asante Kotoko 1-0 Bechem United.

Probable starting eleven – Asante Kotoko

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