Fasil, Hawassa, Wolaitta Dicha, Sidama chase St George

The BetKing Ethiopia Premier League title chase is now taking chase with 5 teams setting themselves apart and in fact, 4 of them, Fasil City on 34 points, Hawassa City on 34, Wolaitta Dicha on 34, and Sidama Coffeeon 33 are rather chasing St George who enjoy a 10 point lead with 44 points.

The die is cast and with 10 weeks to following  the week 20 hostilities, it was interesting to see just how tight the race has become, and with St george unbeaten so far this season, it is looking more like a battle for second play but there’s still 30 points to play for so anything can happen.

Fasil have been hovering between 4th and 6th over the past 6 weeks but suddenly burst to life with a narrow but crucial 1-0 win over Arbaminch City to shoot up to second position on the League table.

All 4 teams have had indifferent run of form with Hawassa and Sidama losing their last games which provided the window for Fasil to pounce.

In all of the permutations, two  teams outside of the top 5 have been gaining grounds, and that is Hadiya Hossana who are unbeaten in their last 5 games and currently 6th with 28 points, same as Ethiopia Coffee who have lost 1

Both of them will seek to profit if they keep up with their form, so the home stretch  will be interesting.

St George have been looking like the odds on favourite for the title but defending Champions, Fasil have shown their winning edge with their resurgence especially with Mujib Kassim’s return and Okiki Afolabi’s goals, and Sidama have the master marksman, Saladhin Said, can any of them stop the “Horsemen?”
