One of the Ghana Premier League Matchweek 6 fixtures sees Accra Lions vs Real Tamale battle for supremacy at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday.

Accra Lions vs Real Tamale match preview

Accra Lions

Accra Lions have not made the best start to the season. After five rounds of matches, the Accra side are 13th on the table with 5 points. They face Real Tamale on Friday afternoon on the back of two losses against Asante Kotoko at home and Great Olympics away, to add to two draws and one win overall in the five league matches this season.

Particular concern will be for the coach who will look to fix the defensive issues the team currently faces after a bad first half display on Monday in the club's 3-0 defeat to Great Olympics. Lions will have to be at their best to pick up all three points against Real Tamale who'll fancy their chances of leaving Accra with a good result.

Real Tamale

Tamale recovered from the heavy 3-0 defeat at Gold Stars on 8 October to beat Karela at home last Sunday in a high-scoring affair that ended 3-2. Baba Kushibo and Mankuyeli put the home side in the lead before the visitors pulled one back. Tamale increased their lead from an Afriyie strike in the 53rd minute before Alex Kuffour scored for Gold Stars to send the game into a nervy ending which Tamale stood strong to see through.

The victory pushed Real Tamale to 9th on the table on 7 points, and they will look to extend their winning streak over Accra Lions to four games.
