Bibiani Gold Stars will clash with Asante Kotoko at Duns' Park, Bibiani in a Ghana Premier League fixture on Saturday afternoon. Kick-off is scheduled for 3:00 PM local time.

The home side fell to a 2-0 away defeat at Berekum Chelsea from a Stephen Amankona double in their opening match of the league season.

While GPL giants Asante Kotoko played out a disappointing goalless draw with Heart of Lions in their own first league outing as well.

With both sides gunning for their first win of the campaign, this clash looks set to live up to fans expectations.

Bibiani Gold Stars vs Asante Kotoko predictions

Both teams are on a mission to obtain their first three points of the new season. It'll be interesting to see which team reigns supreme at full-time.

Prediction 1: Both Teams to Share the Spoils

Christopher Ennin's men lost to Berekum Chelsea last week while Kotoko drew with Heart of Lions. It's important to point out that clashes between these clubs have ended in stalemates in their last two meetings. Also, one of two last GPL matches for Bibiani Gold Stars have ended in a draw while the last two GPL matches for Asante Kotoko have both ended in draws. Granted, both teams will be eager to win, but considering how the results have gone between them in recent times, there's a huge possibility nothing will separate both teams in this clash.

Prediction 2: Both Teams to Score – No

Bibiani Gold Stars and Asante Kotoko failed to find the back of the net in their last league games respectively, and this should be a motivating factor for both teams to score. However, none of these teams have scored in their last two league games, their last game of last season and their opening match of this season. Going by the facts mentioned, we don't see both of these teams scoring but one of them could score.

Prediction 3: Under 2.5 Total Goals

The last four matches between Bibiani Gold Stars and Asante Kotoko have seen just one match go over 2.5 goal mark. It's also important to point out that Prosper Narteh Ogun's side have not scored in their last three games (including a Friendly match) which all ended in less than three goals. Similarly, Gold Stars have been directly involved in two underscoring results ahead of this clash. We're fairly confident in this encounter ending on a low-scoring note.

Bibiani Gold Stars recent form

Christopher Ennin's men have not been doing well in their last three matches. To be clear, they've lost two and drawn one, while their last win came on 28 May 2023 against Kotoku Royals.

Asante Kotoko recent form

The giants of Ghana Premier League have been a shadow of themselves in recent times. Although Kotoko have been unbeaten in their last three games, registering three consecutive draws ahead of their clash with Gold Stars doesn't bode well. Their last win came on 3 June 2023 against Accra Lions.
