Taking the Premier League driving seat for the first time in the season after a 3-1 home victory over former champions Ethiopia Bunna, Sidama Bunna visits in poor form Saint George on Monday while Addis Ababa stadium will be graced the most colorful today with back from a shocking away defeat Ethiopia Bunna entertaining home-away-from-home Wolayta Dicha.
So determined to win at fully packed Hawassa International stadium Sidama Bunna handed a shocking treatment to visiting Ethiopia Bunna thus taking over at the top spot with 36 points from 20 matches. The gate fee dedicated to Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, Sidama dominated the show from start to finish with at least two goal chances missed from the goal mouth. The 81st minute winning goal came from former Saints’ hit man Dawa Hutesa who told reporters later that he had had a cold revenge on the team that denied him chances.
With such a breath taking performance Sidama appeared the number one title contender thus a much anticipated showdown on Monday against defending champions Saint George. After two defeats in a row for the first time since 2011 Saints with a game in hand sit second a point behind. Though still favorites for the title many Saints supporters felt heartbroken for the team’s worst performance just days after the dream qualification to African Champions’ League group stage.
