In what promises to be the most anticipated match of week 28 in the Ghana Premier League, Accra Hearts of Oak will take on their city rivals Accra Great Olympics at the Accra Sports stadium.
Accra Hearts of Oak first played the Dade boys in week 11 which ended in a two-nil defeat to the Phobians. The defeat was not the Phobian’s only agony of the day, the football association slapped them with an indefinite ban of playing all their matches behind closed doors after breaking Corona safety protocols.
The tensed games did not only break the social distance rule at the stadium, the overall attendance was far more than the 25% (9900 fans) that were supposed to be allowed in to the stadium as designed by the Football Association to curb the virus.
Hearts of Oak current form is currently mind blowing, winning six games on the drop without conceding a goal has caught up a lot momentum among the fans who are going to throng the stadium in their numbers.
If anything is supposed to go by, the number of spectators that thronged the stadium in the late kick-off between the Phobians and Berekum Chelsea should draw authorities attention to the impending game.
The traditional fans of Accra Great Olympics are also in dreamland due to the fortunes of their club this season in the local top flight. Rumours are already widespread the management of the Dade Boys are planning to bus their supporters in large numbers to cheer their team to victory.
Both clubs come into the game after defeating their opponents in round 64 of the MTN FA Cup which will even serve as a moral booster to besiege the stadium on Sunday.
