Fasil Ketema just short of a point to snatch BetKing EPL trophy


Fasil Ketema is just a point short of its first ever Ethiopian Premier League title. Back in top form Mujib Kasim is breathing hot behind leading top scorer Ethiopia Bunna’s Abubaker Naser.
“The Emperors” 2-1 victory over bottom of the table Adama Ketema on Wednesday extended their lead at the top to 15 points and their nearest pursuers Ethiopia Bunna couldn’t get the win they needed to keep the title race alive.
With four matches still to play Seyoum Kebede’s side is to bring the BetKing Championship trophy to Gondor for the very first time in the club’s history. Only one defeat and four draws in twenty matches, Fasil deservedly to take aloft the coveted championship trophy as the most consistent side in the 2021 league season. Scoring 35 goals means the side is next only to Ethiopia Bunna with 36 while conceding only twelve that is next to Hadiya-Hossana.
In the meantime Fasil’s goal machine Mujib Kasim recovered in time to catch up with runaway leading top scorer Abubaker Naser. Mujib scored in the past four consecutive matches thus his goal tally reached 19 that is just three short of Abubaker. Twelve goals into his name Giorgis marksman Getaneh Kebede is trailing third from afar.
A goal less draw with AbaJifar on Wednesday Ethiopia Bunna stayed second with 34 points from 19 matches, while St George slipped down to fourth after the shocking 2-1 defeat at the hands of Wolayta-Dicha.
