Medeama dropping points last matchday meant that they surrender top spot to Asante Kotoko.
Great Olympics continued their title pursuit after ending WAFA’s six-year home unbeaten run.
Hearts of Oak also stayed in touch with the title race with a convincing victory over King Faisal.
With the first set of midweek matches in the second round set to take place, here are four games you can’t afford to miss.
Bechem United vs Hearts of Oak
This fixture has produced the most number of goals in a single game this season. When both sides met in Accra, a dominant performance from Hearts of Oak saw them beat Bechem United 6-1.
On that day, Bechem were a man light and perhaps that contributed to their humiliation.
An opportunity to get revenge has been presented to the Hunters who lost against Karela United in their last game.
Coach Samuel Boadu has stuck with the same squad that beat King Faisal and is likely to name an unchanged XI.
Hearts’ outside chances of winning the league means that they can’t afford to drop any more points so victory will be the objective.
However, the Phobians have failed to pick up a win in their last four away outings.
Stadium: Nana Gyeabour’s Park, Bechem
Time: Wednesday, 15:00GMT
Prediction: Bechem United 1-1 Hearts of Oak
Medeama vs WAFA
A draw with Liberty Professionals brought an end to a four-game winning streak by Medeama SC.
Although the Mauve and Yellows lost their place at the top of the table, they still remain unbeaten in their last five game and are just a point away from Asante Kotoko.
Yaw Preko will be relying on his side’s incredible home form as they look to host WAFA.
The Academy Boys come into this game off the back of losing an official league game at their home ground for the first time in six years.
The away form of WAFA provides very little inspiration with the team from Sogakope winning just two games out of 12 on the road.
Stadium: Akoon Park, Tarkwa
Time: Wednesday, 15:00GMT
Prediction: Medeama 3-0 WAFA
Asante Kotoko vs Ebusua Dwarfs
Two wins from Asante Kotoko’s last two games has seen them surpass Medeama to claim top spot in the league.
The Porcupine Warriors seem to have found their feet again after dropping points against Olympics and Medeama in consecutive games.
Barreto knows that the job is far from done. The Portuguese coach will be pleased to welcome Keyekeh and Felix Annan back to the team.
Ebusua Dwarfs were in involved in controversy during their last game which couldn’t conclude due to the referee feeling unsafe to continue.
The FA is yet to take a final decision on what happens to Dwarfs and Legon Cities.
The Cape Coast based side are just a couple of points above the relegation scrap and might have to start picking up points soon.
Stadium: Len Clay stadium, Obuasi
Time: Thursday, 15:00GMT
Prediction: Asante Kotoko 2-0 Ebusua Dwarfs
Great Olympics vs Aduana Stars
As the weeks go by, Great Olympics’ push for a first title in more than 40 years becomes more tangible.
Last matchday’s dramatic win at WAFA park was characteristic of champions elect but there is still a long way to go.
Olympics have won seven home games this season and will be looking to extend that against Aduana Stars.
The Ogya boys have struggled for consistency and find themselves in midtable.
Aduana Stars have four victories in their last 10 games, losing the remaining six.
With Olympics just a point behind Kotoko, the Accra-based club will maximize their efforts to pick up all three points.
Stadium: Accra Sports stadium, Accra
Time: Thursday, 15:00GMT
Prediction: Great Olympics 1-0 Aduana Stars
