Competitive football returns at various league centers this afternoon and one venue that will call for much enthusiasm and euphoria will be the Baba Yara Sports Stadium where Asante Kotoko host Aduana Stars.
A season opener could not have had a banger of a clash worthy than to two foes who fight out everything on the pitch just to attain supremacy over the other which further go beyond just footballing grounds.
Baba Yara Sports Stadium has always been a difficult grounds for the Dormaa side regardless of the side they’re playing against and with Asante Kotoko’s monstrous turn out performance in the CAF Confederations Cup where the grounds almost became a waterloo for opponents, Aduana Stars will be in for something special to be able to walk home smiling.
Much was not known and heard from Aduana Stars during the football break in terms of their preparations and plans ahead of this competition as they did everything in secrecy to warm themselves up for this competition.
As two times Ghanaian champions, Aduana Stars should provide relatively strong opposition to Asante Kotoko who will be continuing from their African ecstasy in this competition.
With experience walking away from the team, Aduana Stars virtually will be venturing in this competition, particularly in this game with much youth who were added to the team to supplement the departed squad.
This will only mean to say Asante Kotoko should be relying on their strength and advantage of being in competitive action over the past few months in Africa to wear down and defeat Aduana Stars since there wouldn’t be so much to pick from the “new” Aduana Stars team.
One thing that C. K. Akonnor and his side can guarantee the footballing world in this encounter is to pick up maximum points to continue the bad records of their opponents in Kumasi having not won any game against Asante Kotoko.
The season opener will require both sides to get their axes on to shape up how their season will go, therefore a win should be the ultimate in this encounter.
Richard Senanu and Maxwell Baakoh are out of this penultimate match due to injuries. Both players have been ruled out for months after sustaining injury during their CAF Confederation Cup campaign.
The Dormaa-based club will be traveling to Kumasi without their striker Bright Adjei
