AshantiGold SC will begin their 2020/21 Ghana Premier League campaign with a game against Karela United FC at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium on Sunday.

The Miners will be going into the game with a somewhat new squad after losing top players such as James Akaminko, Latif Anabila, Safiu Mumuni and Eric Donkor.

However, coach Milovan Cirkovic and his charges are gunning to kickoff the season with a victory as that will spur them on for their CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round clash against Burkinabe side Salitas on November 27.

Karela United meanwhile have been plotting their opponents downfall with a series of impressive pre-season friendly matches.

The Anyinase-based outfit bolstered their squad six signings ahead of the campaign.

They recruited Godfred Adotey, Augustine Randolf, Yaw Ansah, Obed Kofi Sam and Prosper Avoh and former Asante Kotoko midfielder Umar Bashiru.

The match promises to be a dicey encounter especially as both clubs will be going into the match without any reported injury in camp.

AshantiGold however have the edge over Karela United having beaten them 1-0 and 2-1 in 2018 and 2020 respectively.

In those two clashes, the Obuasi-based outfit won one at the Len Clay Stadium and the other one at the Crosby Awuah Memorial Park.

Both sides have had two of their games cancelled due to the Kwesi Nyantakyi bribery exposé in 2018 and the recent one being the Coronavirus outbreak.

AshantiGold were sitting 6th on the standings last term before its termination due to the Coronavirus crisis.

Karela were languishing at 17th position after Matchday 15.
