GPL Week 33: Hearts are Champions, Bechem beat Kotoko to stay safe

Accra,- Accra Hearts of Oak has won the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League title breaking their 12-year trophy-less jinx.

Daniel Afriyie Barnieh who has been a revelation for the Phobians this season was on target once again but his strike was cancelled out by Liberty Professionals defender Paul Kwame who delivered a ferocious header in the late stages of the game to secure a point for the away side.

Steven Owusu’s brace for Bechem United proved crucial as they edged Kumasi Asante Kotoko 2-1 at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park. Sarfo Taylor scored the consolation goal for the Porcupine Warriors.

Kotoko was not able to keep the chase on the arch-rivals Hearts are four points clear of the top of the table with a game left in the season.

Bechem United who have amassed 42 points so far have retained their Premier League status after the win.

With Inter Allies already relegated, the two other teams who would join be decided on the last day with King Faisal, Liberty Professionals, Ebusua Dwarfs, and Legon Cities still in danger of getting relegated.
