Ghana’s Accra Hearts of Oak SC are among four clubs to win their opening four matches in the history of CAF Champions League.
The Ghanaian powerhouse became the second team in the African Clubs competition to achieve that feat after Tunisian side Étoile Sportive de Tunis who set the new record in 1999.
In the year 2000 and on their way to lifting the covetous trophy, Hearts of Oak defeated Egyptian giants Al Ahly, Nigerian side Lobi Stars and Senegalese team Jeanne d’arc to pick 12 points from their first four games before drawing the remaining two matches.
