2023/24 Ghana Premier League: Week 27 Match Report – Berekum Chelsea 2-0 Medeama SC


Berekum Chelsea made their home advantage count after beating Medeama on matchday 27 of the Ghana Premier League campaign.

In a highly competitive clash on Monday afternoon, the Bibires and the Yellow and Mauve locked horns at the Golden City Park.

Chelsea prevailed with a 2-0 victory following an intense battle against the reigning Premier League holders.

The first half of the game ended in a pulsating goalless draw, as both teams struggled to find the net in the much-anticipated clash.

Putting on a stellar performance, the home team found the back of the net twice to secure the three maximum points at stake over the Tarkwa-based club.

Goals from Hubert Gyau and Mezack Afriyie ensured Brekum Chelsea snatches all points from Medeama in their own backyard.

It is important to note that Chelsea have made it double against Medeama this season. The Biribies managed a narrow 1-
0 win against the champions back in the first leg played in November 2023 at the Akoon Community Park before their recent triumph.

Gyau shot the host into the lead in the 70th minute before Afriyie scored to seal victory nine minutes to full time.

Berekum Chelsea have moved to the fifth position in the Ghana Premier League table with 41 points, while Medeama drops to 8th spot with 39 points.
