One of the five strong sides battling to emerge winner of Group “B”, Bahirdar is peaking at the right time not only winning but also performing with superior efforts in every single match. They now lead by four points with 24 points from 13 matches.
They have nine goals in the last three consecutive matches while conceding just one, Bahirdar appears to be in command, doing everything they need to win promotion at the end of the season.
The former Ethiopia Bunna and Hadiya-Hosana head coach Paulos Getachew’s Burayu returned from Axum after a 2-1 away win thus sitting second with 24 points.
With three wins in a row including a 2-0 victory over Yeka Sub City, Shere is rubbing shoulders with second place Burayu with a single goal difference. The Tigray region outfit had been close to promotion in the last two seasons but they would lose steam at the end. Addis Ababa slipped down in to 4th place following successive defeats including a 3-0 shocker to Legetafo. After a 1-0 home win it recovered in time to stay on course collecting 23 points from 12 matches.
Back from 1-0 win over Wollo-Kombolcha, and with two games in hand Legetafo is 5th in the table with 19 points. However, they have a lot of potential and could catch up with the leaders.
