Fasil inches closer to maiden title

Fasil Kenema Football club, which is currently leading the Betking Ethiopian Premier League (EPL), is on course to win its maiden title. The Emperors sit top of the league table with a 15 point cushion between them and second placed Ethiopia Coffee.

It is to be recalled that Fasil had managed to lead last year’s league competition until it was cancelled due to COVID-19. Nevertheless, they had managed to participate in the CAF Confederation Cup last year for the first time in their history. Furthermore, the emperors will expect to represent Ethiopia in the Africa Champions league competition, by finishing atop the league.

Apart from that, Fasil city forward Mujib Kasim has played a pivotal role in the club’s journey to challenging at the top. Mujib has scored 51 goals for the club in the last three seasons and is currently behind the top goal scorer with 19 goals, closely following Ethiopia Coffee’s striker, Abubakir Nasir, who is on 22 goals.

Composed of 13-teams, the Betking Ethiopian Premier League will conclude after five match weeks, to be held at Hawassa.

Fasil City leads the league with 49 points, followed by Ethiopia Coffee on 34 points. Hadiya Hossana is third with 32 points while St. George sits fourth with 31 points. Jimma Aba Jiffar, Sidama Coffee, and Adama City are battling to stave off relegation.
