This is the 19th league game between the Porcupine Warriors and the Berekum lads since 2008/2009 season. They have won seven games apiece, with four ending in a draw.

Asante Kotoko last won at the home grounds of Berekum Chelsea in the 2009/2010 season, which is 10 years ago.

Last season in the truncated league, the only fixture between them took place at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium and the Berekum lads carried the day with a 0-1 win through the courtesy of Kofi Owusu's lone goal.

Aggrieved Asante Kotoko fans who were not happy with officiating attempted to attack, the match officials, but the Police intervened and in the course of that poor crowd control saw a stray rubber bullet hitting the eye of one Augustine Oppong, a staunch supporter of the Porcupine Warriors and he lost his eyes as a result of that.

Asante Kotoko last season had the best away performance: W4, D1, L2 in seven games, whereas Berekum Chelsea won 4, drew 2 and lost 2 at home in 8 games last season.

This is the second game between them on matchday 2 of the Ghana Premier League (GPL).
