The 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season reached 100 games on Tuesday when Great Olympics welcomed King Faisal to the Accra Sports Stadium for the first match of matchday 12.
Olympics won the match in a typically bullish fashion, beating the Kumasi-based club 3-1 to move up to second in the table.

With 100 down, 206 games are left to go.
