2019/20 Ghana Premier League: Week 1 Match Preview - Aduana Stars v Inter Allies FC

Published on: 28 December 2019

There is a growing optimism for current title holders Aduana Stars ahead of the new season as they look to win the premiership for a third time.

In the 2016/2017 campaign where they won the league for the second time, the Fire Boys were the best performers at home by amassing the highest number of points and also going unbeaten.

They start at home this term as they host Inter Allies FC at the Nana Agyemang Badu park on Sunday.

The unconvincing form in the Special Competition seems to have waken the two-time champions to make some significant additions to their squad.

Highly rated right-back Isaac Kwain has joined them with former Ebusua Dwarfs goal poacher Nicholas Gyan also making a move to Fire Boys for the upcoming season.

Aduana Stars have also signed youngsters Alfred Opoku, Benjamin Owusu and Flavio Kouassi Kongoza to give them a depth in squad.

They will also be depending on the experiences of Yahaya Mohammed, Paul Aidoo, Emmanuel Akuoko, Elvis Opoku, Caleb Amankwah, Hafiz Adams, Joseph Addo amongst others to be able to clinch the ultimate again in the end.

Inter Allies FC needed a last day 2-1 victory over Liberty Professionals to survive the relegation ship in their last league campaign in the 2016/2017 season.

They would want to avoid such scare by getting at least a point from Dormaa Ahenkro but that won't come easy.

Inter Allies' last journey to the Nana Agyemang Badu park was very terrifying as they were handed an embarrassment with Aduana Stars mauling them 6-0.

The "Eleven Is To One" side have been very busy in transfer window with the acquisitions of about six new players. Most them joined from the lower leagues.

Top marksman Victorien Adje Adebayor is the one to lead the capital based side to achieve their target this term.

Since the Nigerien international cannot do it all alone, hugely talented players like Mohammed Zakari, Richmond Nii Lamptey, Hashmin Musah, Michel Otou, Abdul Nassiru Hamzah and Nigerian forward Effiong Nsungusi are expected to come good for the Tony Lokko led side.

Prediction: Aduana Stars 2-0 Inter Allies FC
