Karela United welcome Medeama in Nzema derby

Medeama players

Fourteenth placed Karela United have the chance to improve on the league log as they welcome thirteenth placed Medeama to the Crosby Awuah Memorial Park at Anyinase on Wednesday afternoon.

Things haven’t gone as planned for the Pride and Passion lads, and hoped to rebound as they are currently on a two game losing streak (1 nil defeat at Samartex and King Faisal surprised them at home as they lost 1-0) and cannot afford to make it three straight defeats.

Their opponents, Medeama have posted one win, one draw and one defeat in their last three matches and are pecked on the same 10 points (13th on the log) with Karela United.

Karela do not have an excellent home record as they’ve been able to win just three matches at home this season.

On the other hand, Medeama do not have a stellar away record as they’ve lost twice and recorded one draw this season, which makes their match against Karela a tough call, as both sides need the three points badly, as they both don’t have the upper hand because of their current form and the break of the league.

Personally, a draw is possible but Karela is capable of putting smiles on the face of their fans on their home turf.
