Addis Ababa – The much anticipated clash between Ethiopian Premier League defending champions Saint George and last year’s runner-up Dedebit FC will finally take place this Thursday.

The match was originally scheduled to be held in Week 4 on November 13, 2010, but it was postponed. The Ethiopian Football Federation was unable to come up with a working schedule date as both teams lost 5 players each to the Ethiopian national football team that took part in the CECAFA Challenge Cup, which concluded yesterday.

The two teams have only played 4 matches, the fewest games in the EPL.
