2023/24 Ghana Premier League Week 33: Hearts of Oak v Great Olympics preview

An important clash between Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics is one of the games to be played in the Ghana Premier League this weekend.

With the 2023/24 league campaign on the verge of its conclusion, the fixture between the Phobians and the Dade Boys this weekend has got many talking.

This is particularly because either side could be relegated at the end of the league season.

In this preview, let’s assess the form of the two capital-based clubs heading into the game.

Form:

The hosts, Hearts of Oak have had a season to forget. It may be fair to say that since the sacking of Coach Samuel Boadu, the Phobians have not been the same.

In the last five matches of Hearts of Oak, the team has disappointingly lost three times. Having won the other two games, the Phobians are 13th on the league table and just three places above the relegation zone.

The situation is not that different from Great Olympics.

The self-acclaimed Accra Landlords have been unable to compete in the Ghana Premier League this season.

Two defeats, two wins, and one draw in the last five matches have left the team just one place above the relegation zone.

Dropping points against Hearts of Oak this weekend will most likely drag the team into the red zone.

Head-to-head:

The good news for Great Olympics is that in recent times, they have dominated Hearts of Oak in games.

In the last five meetings between the two Accra clubs, Hearts of Oak have failed to win any, with Great Olympics winning as many as three.

The Dade Boys will hope in times of need a win will be easy to come by this weekend.

Predicted scoreline:

This game will make the news this weekend. Unfortunately, the match is very difficult to call, especially with so much at stake for both teams.

Maybe, a 2-2 draw at the end of the 90 minutes.

Match details.

The match between Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics will be played on Sunday, June 9.

The game will kick off at 6pm at the Accra Sports Stadium.
