Accra Lions will play host to Asante Kotoko at the Accra Sports Stadium in a gameweek 4 Ghana Premier League clash on Monday evening. The match will kick off at 4 PM, 9 October 2023.

The home side will look to continue their unbeaten run in the league after picking up one victory and two draws in their first three league games.

Asante Kotoko, meanwhile, are having a poor start to the league season having registered two draws and a loss in their last three games of the campaign; they're coming into this clash after a 1-1 draw with Karela and are firmly rooted in the relegation zone ahead of Accra Lions battle.

Kotoko will be searching for their first win of the season against an Accra Lions side they've enjoyed a good run against in recent times.

Accra Lions vs Asante Kotoko predictions

Prediction 1: Asante Kotoko to win or draw

Accra Lions have not picked up a win against Kotoko in their last four games, losing three times and drawing one. Prosper Ogun's side have as a matter of fact picked all three points in their last visit to the Accra Sports Stadium. Even though the team has not picked up a win yet this season, we're backing them to not go home empty-handed.

Prediction 2: First-half goal

Our second prediction for this match is on goal during the first half. The odds for this market are good to stake for those who wish to bet. Clashes involving both teams have produced at least a goal before the break in three of their last four meetings. It's worth mentioning that Accra Lions' three league games this season have ended with at least one goal in the first half, while Kotoko's 1-1 draw with Karela last week saw a first half goal too. We strongly back a goal to be scored here before halftime.

Prediction 3: Both teams to score

Two of the Ghana Premier League matches Accra Lions and Kotoko have played so far have ended with both teams netting. This fixture also had goals on either side twice in the last four skirmishes. Going by these, there's a good chance neither of these teams will keep a clean sheet.

Accra Lions vs Asante Kotoko recent head-to-head
