Ethiopia Football: St. George beat Fincha Sugar 3-0
Addis Ababa – St. George has defeated Fincha Sugar 3-0 with Andualem Negussie netting 2 goals (1′ & 10′) and Suleiman Mohammed scoring the third goal (44′), to go on top of the Ethiopian Premier League (EPL).
So, after today’s result, St. George has 60 points +28 goals, followed by Ethiopian Coffee with 58 points and +22 goals, but with a game in hand.
TodayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s result also washed away any chance that Dedebit FC might have for the title as it finds itself 5 points behind St. George. So, even a victory over Defence Force on Monday will only get them 58 pts.
The lead is temporary though because if Ethiopian Coffee wins its match against Mugher Cement here on Monday, then it will clinch the title.
Coffee vs Mugher
Ethiopian Coffee has a good chance to defeat Mugher on Monday and clinch their first EPL title, considering that they beat them 3-1 in Assela during their first round encounter on February 20, and they will also be playing at home in front of their supporters. But anything can happen in soccer.
This yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s EPL championship has been the most competitive in the leagueÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s history. The fact that we have to wait until the last match of the season to find out who will be crowned EPL champion is a good testimony.
Meanwhile, last-placed and relegated team Fincha Sugar has also gone in the books of EPL as the only team in the competitionÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 13 years of history not to have one a single match. The team drew 10 and lost 20.
