With only four matches remaining in the betPawa Ghana Premier League, teams are locked in fierce competition for the title and the battle to avoid relegation.
In the upcoming Matchday 31, league leaders Aduana Stars will face a tough challenge against Accra Lions at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.
Accra Lions have had a difficult second round, winning only four out of 13 matches and dropping to ninth place on the league table after leading in the first round.
Aduana Stars, despite recent struggles due to a home ban, have been strong when playing at the Accra Sports Stadium and have not lost in their last three visits to the capital.
Medeama, a strong contender for the league title, will face a formidable opponent in Accra Hearts of Oak, who are determined to climb back into the top four.
Under the leadership of David Ocloo, Hearts of Oak have been excellent at home, winning all five of their home games and posing a tough challenge for Medeama.
Medeama's away form has been a struggle, with only three wins this season, but they have the potential to surprise the giants, as demonstrated in their previous away victory against Kumasi Asante Kotoko.
The battle to avoid relegation is also heating up, with more than 11 teams still in danger and some intriguing duels this weekend.
Nsoatreman FC, currently third from bottom, will face a crucial match against Real Tamale United, who are also fighting to secure their safety.
After a disappointing exit from the FA Cup semi-finals against King Faisal, Nsoatreman will be determined to bounce back and return to winning ways.
Nsoatreman has been strong at home throughout the season, with their only home defeat coming against Accra Hearts of Oak in the first round.
Karela United and Great Olympics will clash in another important match, as both teams battle to secure their place in the league amidst tight competition at the bottom of the table.
King Faisal, who recently reached their first-ever cup final, must secure a victory against Sarmatex 1996 to improve their position.
King Faisal's recent league form has been disappointing, with four winless matches and a challenging final four fixtures.
Kotoku Royals, who are already relegated, will face Kumasi Asante Kotoko, a team that has been winless in their last three matches.
Despite Asante Kotoko's recent struggles, they are the favourites to claim all three points against Kotoku Royals in their match on Monday.
