Great Olympics

Great Olympics will look to quickly bounce back to winning ways when they host Aduana Stars at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Dade Boys’ return to the Ghanaian top-flight was met with fire and brimstone at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium when AshantiGold walloped them 3-0 last Sunday.

Olympics will be poised to quickly put smiles on their faithful by returning to winning ways when they host Aduana Stars on Matchday Two.

It will be the fifth time the two clubs are meeting in the Ghana Premier League.

Aduana have always had the upper hand on their opponents — having won three and drawn one out of the four games played between the two sides.

The last match played between the two teams at the Accra Sports Stadium ended 2-1 in favour of the Dormaa-based outfit.

The bookmakers have touted Aduana Stars to continue their ruthless display in the league by walking over Olympics in Accra.

Aduana Stars will be brimming with confidence ahead of the encounter after starting the season with aplomb — hammering Inter Allies 4-0 at home.

The Fire Boys will hope to see star forward Yahaya Mohammed keep up his red-hot form in the game after bagging a hat-trick in the win against Inter Allies.

But having enjoyed three consecutive wins at home during the final fixtures of the 2017 Ghana League campaign, Olympics have proved to be unpredictable hence they cannot be written off when playing in front of their vociferous home crowd.

Aduana Stars sit at the summit of the league standings with three points — same as seven teams but with superior goal difference while Olympics are languishing in 17th position.
