Accra Sports Stadium will host Accra Lions vs Real Tamale Ghana Premier League week 6 clash on Friday afternoon. The match kicks off at 3 pm local time, 20 October 2023.

The Lions come into this fixture on the back of two consecutive defeats against Kotoko and recently to the Great Olympics, they'll have their work cut out as history is strongly against them as they lock horns with Tamale.

Real Tamale United, meanwhile, played out an entertaining 3-2 win over Karela last Sunday at home, and will look to string back-to-back victories for the first time this campaign against a side they've dominated in recent times.

Accra Lions vs Real Tamale predictions

When these sides face off, one team ends up winning; there hasn't been a match that ended in a draw so far in this fixture. It'll be fascinating to see how their fifth clash ends. Here are three predictions for the GPL game.

Prediction 1: Real Tamale to win or draw

It has not been a year yet since they played against each other at the Accra Sports Stadium in Accra. The Real Tamale United fans will be hoping that their team will once again rise to the occasion and continue with the impressive record against Accra Lions. Real Tamale won each of their last three matches against Accra Lions and will fancy their chances for another victory on Friday. During their last three action-packed matches, Real Tamale United scored seven goals, while Accra Lions only managed two; Tamale also won their last GPL game while the Lions have lost their last two. We strongly back the visitors to win or at least get a draw.

Prediction 2: Both teams to score

Encounters between both teams have ended with goals on both sides in three of their four previous meetings. Both clubs scored each other last season when they met in the league, with Real Tamale United picking up maximum points in both games. Also, two of the five Accra Lions league games have ended on both teams hitting the back of the net, while two of Tamale's five matches have not yielded goals on both ends. With these in mind, we back both teams to score at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 goals

Our last prediction for the Accra Lions vs Real Tamale game is on the over 2.5 goals market. Previous clashes between them have not failed to give us goals; as a matter of fact, three clashes involving both teams have produced at least three goals as these teams have been scoring each other. In addition to why we chose this market, it's clear that Real Tamale scores and concedes as only one of their five matches this campaign have failed to produce the least three goals, while Accra Lions have twice been involved in high-scoring matches in the league. We expect at least three goals from this game based on the above facts.
