Mekelakeya battle Fasil, St George face Dire Dawa

Mekelakeya will take on Fasil Kenema with an opportunity to close the gap on the Ethiopia League leaders, Ethiopia Nigd Bank. This comes after Ethiopia Nigd Bank’s 2-2 draw against Bahir Dar City.

A victory for Mekelakeya would narrow the gap to three points, but they are well aware that the Week 27 match against Fasil Kenema will be challenging. Despite an unexpected draw with Shashemene City in their last game, Mekelakeya remains unbeaten in their past five matches.

Heading into this game, Mekelakeya has scored more than two goals in back-to-back matches. However, breaking through Fasil Kenema’s formidable defense, one of the strongest in the league, will require extra effort. Mekelakeya stands as the third-highest scoring team in the league, while Fasil Kenema boasts the third-strongest defense.

Fasil, on the other hand, head into Friday’s encounter on the back of their defeat to league leaders Ethiopia Nigd Bank and will be aiming for their 11th win of the season.

In the second match of the day, St George take on Dire Dawa City.

Currently, St George sits in fifth place on the table with 43 points, while their upcoming opponents, Dire Dawa Kenema, hold the 8th spot with 37 points.
