The scientific soccer lads – Liberty Professionals has a daunting mission to accomplish today as they host free scoring West Africa Football Academy [WAFA] at the Carl Reindorf Park in Dansoman, Accra on matchday 18 of the 2017 Ghana Premier League.
It is an undeniable fact that the soccer physicians – WAFA have been very phenomenal this season and to be able to beat them, one needs to be ready to fight for ninety  minutes and more.
Togolese striker, Komlan Agbeniadan’s brace inspired the soccer physicians victory [2-1] over Liberty Professionals in the first leg at the Red Bull Arena in Sogakope but the scientific soccer lads are bent on beating WAFA this afternoon.
Liberty Professionals are yet to win a game in the second round having picked two draws [Hearts of Oak 1-1 Liberty Professionals], [Tema Youth 0-0 Liberty Professionals] on the road.
On the other hand, WAFA comes into this game with their heads swirl having made history in their last match where they mesmerized Hearts of Oak 5-0 in Sogakope.
The introduction of Richard Kissi Boateng in the heart of Liberty’s midfield seems to be paying dividends for the scientific soccer lads, but his other midfield trio; Gerard Arkson, Bernard Arthur, and Baba Zakari would have to be on a full day surveillance duty in other to cage WAFA’s deadly duo – Majeed Ashimeru and Gideon Waja.
Again, coach Michael Osei would have to work on his lateral defenders to be masters of not just man-to-man marking, but zonal marking as well because Gideon Waja and Majeed Ashimeru are very excellent in opening their opponents’ defence from the flanks.
Relegation threatened AshantiGold Sporting Club will play as guest to Medeama SC at the Tarkwa T&A Park. The soccer miners [AshantiGold] have picked four  out of a possible six  points in their last two matches and would be hoping for a similar result[s] this afternoon but Medeama Sporting Club will give them a run for their money.
At the Accra Sports Stadium, bruised Hearts of Oak will be seeking to slaughter Premier League new boys – Bolga All Stars to pacify their vociferous supporters for the debacle that befell the once fierce club in Africa [Hearts] at the Red Bull Arena at the hands of WAFA.
Bolga All Stars will not survive in the Premier League, but Hearts of Oak needs to eschew complacency in other to fulfill their dream of plucking more goals at the expense of the visitors who are rooted at the bottom of the table with just eleven  points.
Defending league champions, Wa All Stars will host Berekum Chelsea at the Wa Park. This season has obviously not been rosary for Wa All Stars and they need to apply the gear to its fullest in other to pick a win over the visitors [B. Chelsea].
Mysterious Ebusua Dwarfs will welcome Bechem United to the Cape Coast Stadium, where few teams have managed to run away with a point this season whiles Inter Allies also host Elmina Sharks at the El-Wak Stadium in Cantonment, Accra.
Liberty Professionals 2-2 WAFA
Medeama SC 2-1 AshantiGold SC
Hearts of Oak 4-0 Bolga All Stars
Wa All Stars 1-0 Berekum Chelsea
Ebusua Dwarfs 2-0 Bechem United
Inter Allies 1-0 Elmina Sharks
