Monday’s solitary Ghana Premier League fixture takes place at the Golden City Park, as Berekum Chelsea host Medeama in a match of epic proportions. 

Medeama will aim to avenge the 1-0 defeat suffered against Chelsea during the corresponding fixture back in November, 2023 at the Akoon Community park.

Medeama coach Nebjosa has been stressing the need to stay focus and grounded amid recent improvement in the team.

The Mauve and Yellow recorded a narrow 1-0 win over Legon Cities to make it two-out-of-two after beating Hearts of Oak 2-0 the same venue.

Chelsea will be anxious to return to winning ways after losing 3-2 at league leaders FC Samartex 1996 while their opponents managed a 1-0 win over Legon Cities

Medeama have dropped to 7th on the table and will jump back to fourth if they manage to negotiate a win away from home.

The Golden City park has always been a dreaded venue for visiting teams and with Chelsea only losing just once in 12 home games, they stand as overwhelming favourites for this epic clash.

Samuel Boadu will be happy to complete the double despite not being in charge when the Blues pipped the defending champions at their own backward five months ago.
