Second round of EPL to resume today
The Ethiopian Premier League (EPL) second round is set for a return after a break. In today’s match, Ethiopia Coffee will face Suhul Shire. League leaders Saint George will entertain Wolkite City tomorrow.
Coffee will be looking to bounce back from their poor first round campaign. With only 18 points, Coffee, currently 11th, has to shift into another gear in order to have a decent second half of the season.
Meanwhile, the league leaders St. George will entertain newly promoted Wolkite City on Sunday, in Addis Ababa stadium. The horsemen found it tough in the first round, to sit on the top the table, however, a winning run in the last five games of the first round helped put St. George, go two points clear from second placed Fasil City.
Meanwhile, Fasil City will take on Adama City on Sunday. Fasil come into this game after a good run of form in the first round of matches. It is going to be a challenging game for the visitors Adama City, who are one of the EPL clubs hit by a financial strain.
Except the match between Ethiopia Coffee and Suhul shire, all games will take place in regional stadiums.
