ANALYSIS:RTU OR Bofokwa Tano FC, Who Qualifies To The GPL?

Below is the comprehensive analysis of who qualifies to the Ghana Premier League next season from the division one zone one

Real Tamale United

If history is anything to go by, then RTU would undoubtedly will make it to the Premiership, the last time they qualified to the Ghanaian topflight it was a victory at the Berekum Golden City Park that set the tone for them to gain promotion.

The pride of the north face B.A United in Berekum before travelling back home to face City rivals Steadfast FC in what is expected to be the match of the season. It will be make or break for either side as a win for RTU will see them edge closer to the title. The next final two games will be a tricky derby game at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium against relegation battlers Yendi Gbewaa FC and a finish off at home to Unity FC who also desperately need the points to stay in the league.

Coach Shaibu Tanko’s men knows that a drop in points at Berekum would be an obstacle to their qualification, and so it will be a do or die affair for the formal club of Ghana’s all time best player Abedi Ayew Pele.

They definitely would not want Bofoakwa Tano or Arsenals to pipped them to the title and subsequently the slot.

RTU has one of the best attacking players in the Zone, Ronald Frimpong since joining them from Nzema Kotoko has been in good scoring form, and has so far scored nine goals, he is currently the leading scorer in the team.

Other players such as Fauzan Alhassan Dandawa, Mohammed Sadat, Mustapha and Yakubu Labandow have all scored match winning goals for the team, which has made RTU a great threat to many clubs.

And also, considering Arsenals and Bofoakwa Tano playing each other on the final day, Real Tamale United will have a 9/10 chance to make it to the Premiership after 8-years of absence.
