It will be Georgetown versus Berbice, alongside a traditional East Coast of Demerara derby, when Fruta Conquerors battle Monedderlust, and Buxton United engages Victoria Kings in the GFF Stag Beer Elite League today at the Tucville ground.
Despite being held to a scoreless draw in the previous fixture, the numbers point to the home side starting as the favourite in the encounter at 20:00hrs against the Berbice outfit.
In their previous four matches, the Tucville unit has a perfect record of 4-0, with nine goals recorded alongside three concessions during the series. For Monedderlust, a win would translate to second position, after securing an upset 1-0 result against Topp XX in their prior contest.
Meanwhile, the opening contest at 18:00hrs is expected to be an emotionally charged affair, when Buxton United tackles fierce rival Victoria Kings in their first ever meeting in the tournament.
The Buxtonians currently sit in the fourth position, with their previous fixture ending badly, in a 4-0 loss to the Guyana Defence Force (GDF).
On the other hand, Victoria Kings will be in a confident mood following their 0-0 draw with Fruta Conquerors, and will aim to fashion their first win to improve their current fifth position.
The event resumes on Sunday at the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) in Linden. In the opening fixture at 16:00hrs, Buxton United tackles Fruta Conquerors, while home side Topp XX engages the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) at 18:00hrs.
