Sat, 28 Dec 2019 Source: Ghana Soccernet

Asante Kotoko will hope for a perfect start to the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season when they welcome Techiman Eleven Wonders to the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

The Porcupine Warriors are in the best mood for their opening game of the season after lifting the President's Cup last weekend.

They took the trophy at the expense of no other team than rivals Hearts of Oak. The win gives them confidence heading into the game against Wonders on Sunday.

Which means the fans will expect nothing short of victory.

Kotoko have seen changes in their technical set up ahead of the commencement of the league with the return of Maxwell Konadu as head coach.

Konadu’s presence on the bench has made Kotoko firm favourites to win the title. The former Black Stars assistant coach excelled in his first spell winning the league in 2012.

He comes into his second spell with experience garnered from working as Black Stars assistant coach and head coach of Local Black Stars. He won the WAFU Nations Cup and qualified Championship of African Nations.

For Wonders, not much has been seen during the offseason and not much is expected from them. They start the season without a substantive manager following the surprise resignation of Frimpong Manso.

He resigned after three weeks in charge of preparing the team for the start of the league.

Prediction: Asante Kotoko 2-0 Eleven Wonders
