Ghana's No. 1

2019/20 Ghana Premier League: Week 9 Match Preview - Inter Allies FC vs. Legon Cities FC

Published on: 07 February 2020

There have been positive vibes surrounding Inter Allies FC recently as they have bagged seven goals in the last two games.

The Capelli Boys aim at stretching the winning streak to three on the trot in the city derby on Saturday against Legon Cities FC.

Inter Allies beat King Faisal Babes 4-2 last weekend and also thrashed Eleven Wonders FC 3-0 at their own backyard in Techiman in the midweek.

The hosts will be counting on top marksman Victorien Adje Adebayor once again for a third home victory of the season.

The Nigerien international forward has scored or assisted in each of the four games played at the Accra sports stadium this campaign.

Inter Allies are expecting midfielder Gockel Ahortor back in the fold for the regional derby this Saturday.

Legon Cities FC on the other hand is having a rollercoaster campaign so far. It has been ups and downs, win today lose tomorrow.

After suffering a 3-0 loss in the hands of Karela United last weekend, the Royals recovered from the battering with a 1-0 win over Elmina Sharks FC in midweek.

It was Abdul Karim Jabila's last gasp penalty that ensured Cities claim all the match points.

Jabila has scored in all of the last two games Cities have played at the Accra sports stadium. He needs to replicate that on Saturday.

Winger Ahmed Rahman has been ruled out of Saturday's city derby after he suffered a serious injury last Wednesday against Elmina Sharks.

Panayotis Papadopoulos is expected to make a return to the squad for this encounter.

Prediction: Inter Allies FC 3-1 Legon Cities FC
