The rivalry between these two powerful football giants is one of the most intense on the African continent. Lives have been lost over this rivalry.
However, my little research has proven that Kotoko, the porcupine warriors appears to have a slight advantage over the Rainbow lads.
Don't get upset, I'm not making this up. The records and historical data supports the fact that Asante Kotoko is more of a successful football club than Accra Hearts Of Oak.
Notwithstanding, Hearts Of Oak possess some very rich achievements under their rainbow stripes.
Enough of the long talk. Let's get into the facts;
DID YOU KNOW?
Kumasi Asante Kotoko has won 24 League trophies compared to Hearts Of Oak's 21.
Kumasi Asante Kotoko has won two CAF Champions Leagues (1970 and 1983) compared to Hearts Of Oak's one CAF Champions League trophy in 2000.
Kumasi Asante Kotoko was crowned the African Football Club Of The 20th Century by the statistical analysis division of FIFA whereas Accra Hearts Of Oak was listed as the 8th most powerful club in the world by the same division in the year 2000.
Hearts Of Oak has won 10 FA Cups compared to Asante Kotoko's 9 FA Cups victories.
Asante Kotoko has won 3 Ghanaian Super Cups and Accra Hearts Of Oak has won it twice.
The Porcupine Warriors hold the record as the team with the most trophies in Ghana. They have 58 trophies so far, whereas the Phobians have 43 trophies in their cabinet.
However, the Phobians possess laurels like the CAF Confe xxderations Cup and CAF Super Cup which has eluded the Porcupine Warriors.
That's all for now!!
