The games are coming in thick and fast as the second round of the Ghana Premier League unfolds.

There isn’t time to settle as the league table is starting to take shape.

Great Olympics, Karela United, Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak look poised to battle it for the title.

Whilst, a host of teams in the bottom half look to avoid the drop.

Here are four games you can’t afford to miss this weekend.

AshantiGold vs Hearts of Oak

It was a goalfest when these two sides met in the first round.

Arguably the match of the season as both teams sized up each other in a 2-2 draw.

Since then, a lot has changed with the two teams changing coaches.

AshGold fell off in the title race and are now revitalizing under new coach Romain Folz.

The Miners put up a spirited performance on matchday 18 holding Karela to a 1-1 draw at the Crosby Awuah Memorial Park.

As a result, the Obuasi-based club will come into this clash full of confidence looking to pick up their first victory under their new coach.

For Hearts of Oak, Samuel Boadu seems to have steadied the ship. Spirits are high as the former Medeama coach is yet to concede, winning his first two games.

This should be an eagerly contested battle for two teams who have found new life under new coaches.

Stadium: Len Clay Park, Obuasi

Time: Saturday, 15:00GMT

Prediction: AshGold 1-3 Hearts of Oak

Asante Kotoko vs Berekum Chelsea

Asante Kotoko at the moment seem to be scoring goals for fun. Four different goalscorers in their last outing against Bechem United shows how ruthless the Porcupines can be.

Mariano Barreto doesn’t want to get ahead of himself and has called for calm stating that his team can do better.

It was the first time since 2016 that Kotoko had managed to score four goals in a single Ghana Premier League game.

The Porcupine Warriors would want to once again establish their dominance when they face an in-form Berekum Chelsea side.

The Berekum-based club have won four out of their last seven games in their pursuit to avoid relegation.

When these two sides met in the last round, there was drama as a late free kick from Emmanuel Clottey ensured the points were shared.

However, Kotoko might have different ideas this time playing at home.

Stadium: Len Clay Park, Obuasi

Time: Sunday, 15:00GMT

Prediction: Asante Kotoko 2-0 Berekum Chelsea

Legon Cities vs Great Olympics

It’s been back to back losses against relegation candidates for Legon Cities.

Bashir Hayford might start to feel the pressure if the results don’t come his way considering the number of signings he made in the second transfer window.

The former AshGold coach will be glad to welcome Victorien Adebayor who trained with the team this week.

The Royals have lacked a cutting edge upfront despite strengthening in attack.

They’ve scored just two goals in their last three games winning just one.

The poor form of the Accra-based club leaves them just one point above the relegation zone.

Up next is an Accra derby against table toppers Accra Great Olympics.

Olympics will be motivated heading into this fixture knowing victory could enhance their lead at the top.

The Oly Dade boys are ambitious but cautious in their pursuit of a first league title in more than 40 years.

Legon Cities have showed that they can compete against the big sides even in their poor form.

Stadium: Accra Sports stadium

Time: Sunday, 15:00GMT

Prediction: Legon Cities 2-1 Great Olympics

Medeama vs Dreams FC

If Medeama want to remain title contenders, they can’t afford to drop points this weekend.

Already six points off the top, Medeama will need an impressive display against a compact Dreams FC side.

The Mauves and Yellows went on a three game win run but quickly dropped off failing to pick a win in their last two.

A defeat against leaders Olympics on matchday 18 means Yaw Preko and his boys now have their work cut out for them.

Dreams FC on the other hand have experienced similar circumstances to Medeama.

After going on an eight game unbeaten run, the Still Believe boys have just one win in their last four.

However, Dreams hold the upper hand in terms of recent head-to-head winning their last two against the Tarkwa-based side.

Stadium: Akoon Park, Tarkwa

Time: Sunday, 15:00GMT

Prediction: Medeama 1-1 Dreams FC
