Medeama SC will play host to Nations FC in a rescheduled Ghana Premier League match day three fixture on Thursday 19th October, 2023 at the Akoon Park in Tarkwa.
Medeama Could not play this particular game at the weekend because of their CAF Champions League second leg game against Horoya in Conakry. The champions lost the match 2-1 but progressed 4-3 on aggregate to reach the group stages of the continent’s elite competition for the first time in their history.
This Medeama match against Nations FC has been subsequently rescheduled because of the Champions’ proposed trip to the United States where they will be facing DC United during the Ghana Week Celebrations.
With that out of the way and when they eventually get to this match, Medeama will have to be at their best because they are currently bottom of the log after losing one of the opening two games played so far.
Nations FC, who have already won a game this term, will be guests of Medeama and it promises to be a close contest. Which of these outfits will come out on top after 90 minutes?

Medeama vs Nations predictions
Prediction 1: Medeama to win
Although they conquered Remo Stars of Nigeria and Horoya of Guinea to reach the group stages of the CAF Champions League, things have not gone seemingly right for Medeama in the opening games in the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League season. In addition, they are the defending champions but they are without a win after two rounds of games. By comparison, newly promoted Nations FC have a win already and will be confident coming into this encounter. With the continental hurdle successfully sorted, we expect Medeama to reign supreme at the end of this match.
Prediction 2: BTTS – no
The two teams will be clashing for the first time in the Ghana Premier League and we expect a tough game but interesting for the neutrals to watch. Medeama may be champions but that does not just put them ahead of this highly motivated Nations side. In the two games the visitors have played so far, both teams have not scored. Having earlier tipped Medeama to win, just a goal or two might just decide this contest.
Prediction 3: Under 2.5 total goals
Lastly, let's explore the over/under goals market for our last Medeama vs Nations prediction. As a matter of fact, only one of Nations FC’s last seven games produced over 2.5 goals. Medeama have conceded a lot in recent weeks and they will be keen to sort that out as they hope to get back to winning ways and for this reason, we are taking the under option for this game.
Medeama recent form
Medeama are without a win on the home front but they have been able to avoid defeat in seven of their last 10 matches. Evans Adotey’s men will look to arrest that run and get a win against the newly-promoted side.
Nations FC recent form
Nations FC have won one of their two games this season. The division two champions will be keen to build on that initial start and prove difficult to beat for the home side who are desperate in need of a win.
