Hearts of Oak and city rivals Great Olympics will on Saturday renew their rivalry in a matchday 11 Ghana Premier League fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Phobians beat Olympics 4-0 at the Accra sports stadium in the 2019/20 season following a stellar performance that saw Joseph Esso, Benjamin Afutu and Daniel Afriyie Barnie scoring for Hearts of Oak.
The Phobians failed to win last Saturday’s game against Berekum Chelsea after a stalemate.
Hearts will be hoping to return to winning ways when they tackle Olympics in the day’s top liner. Hearts is one of the highest scoring teams this season, having scored 16 goals in 10 games.
For Accra Great Olympics, the motivation to beat their city rivals is high on the agenda of Head Coach Yaw Preko, who capped both teams on the ticket of a coach and player.
Yaw Preko comes along as an experienced gaffer following his exploits with Black Satellites. But his time at Olympics promises to be challenging due to the demands at the Club.
Accra Hearts of Oak have won six of the last seven meetings between the two sides with the other one ending in a draw.
Going into Saturday’s game both teams are separated by only one point. Great Olympics sit 10th with 15 points whereas regional rivals Hearts of Oak lie 2nd with 16 points on the league log.
