Elmina Sharks Set to Deepen Hearts of Oak’s Woes

Accra Hearts of Oak will have a go at the week eight Ghana Premier League on Wednesday at 3:00pm.

The Phobians have returned from Algeria after their disastrous outing in the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup campaign. The Phobians suffered a humiliating elimination from both the CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup in a few months. In the CAF Champions League campaign, they defeated Guinea side, Club Industriel de Kamsar 2-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium in one leg. The victory set them up with Morocco giants, Wydad Athletic Club in the second playoffs. The Phobians managed to beat them 1-0 in the first leg at the Accra Sports Stadium before suffering a 6-1 drubbing in Casablanca.

That result sent them down to the second tier club competition which is the CAF Confederation Cup of which they were paired against Algeria club, Jeunesse Sportive de Saoura. Hearts of Oak managed to beat them 2-0 in the first leg playoffs at the Accra Sports Stadium moving into the second leg in Béchar. The Phobians will go suffer yet another horrendous defeat of which ended 4-0 in Béchar to finish the aggregate at 4-2 for JS SAOURA.

Hearts of Oak have equally started the 2021-22 Ghana Premier League on a bad note. They have played four matches and recorded three draws and one defeat in the process. They will next play Elmina Sharks in the week eight at the Nduom Stadium and coach Samuel Boadu will look to win to decrease the pressure from the Hearts of Oak faithfuls.
