Match Preview – Accra Hearts of Oak SC vs Dreams FC
Dreams FC will be looking to startle local giants Accra Hearts of Oak and continue their impressive start to the Ghana Premier League season when the two sides meet in their matchday 4 fixture in Cape Coast on Sunday.
This match promises to be nothing short of explosive if the history between both sides is anything to go by; they met twice in the pre-season as Dreams FC came from behind to beat Hearts of Oak 2-1 to win the GHALCA G8 tournament and a 1-1 friendly draw in Dawu.
Dreams FC’s impressive start to the season has them amongst the top 3 on the league log with 2 wins and a draw.
It is a contrasting fortune for the home side who bounced back from their humiliating defeat to Ashgold in matchday 2 to amass their first 3 points of the season on Thursday when they beat Ebusua Dwarfs 2-0 at the Cape Coast Stadium and are now 7th on the league log with 4 points.
Hearts of Oak will be looking to create some stability with their results coming into this game as Dreams FC will also be expecting to maintain their unbeaten record in the league so this game shapes up nicely to be an epic.
Not much has changed in terms of injuries at the club so there won’t be any major changes expected to the squad.
